Convicted sexual predator found hiding out in Newark

Posted by wlpo on March 12, 2015

A manhunt for a convicted sexual predator ends in Newark.

Back in January, a warrant was issued for Shawn Lipsey of Plano who skipped out on his sentencing for six counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecent solicitation of a child. With the help of U.S. Marshalls, Kendall County deputies say they found Lipsey Tuesday hiding out with his wife in Newark.

Investigators say Lipsey was found in a hidden room and arrested without incident. He’ll be sentenced Friday.

Lipsey’s wife Raissa Jarosz-Lipsey was arrested for felony obstructing justice, aiding a fugitive and filing a false police report. She was taken to the Kendall County Jail with bond set at $500,000.
