John Corbett, wanted for failing to register as a sex offender, was arrested in central Mexico after authorities discovered he was living there after a year-long search.

U.S. Marshals and Mexican authorities found Corbett, a level three sex offender, living in a container home in the countryside, police said. He has been deported to Georgia, where he is held at the Clayton County Jail in Jonesboro. 

Corbett was wanted on a warrant out of Newton District Court charging him with failure to register as a sex offender as required by law. 

Corbett was required to register as a sex offender after a 1989 incident that led to his conviction for rape, assault, and battery with a deadly weapon and breaking and entering, police said. He broke into a Newton home and assaulted a woman at knifepoint.
