KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (WTVA) -- A man wanted by Attala County authorities for statutory rape has been arrested.

WTVA News Partner reports L. A. Barksdale was arrested by U. S. Marshals in Memphis Thursday.

Barksdale, 50, failed to show up for his trial over charges he had sexual contact with a minor under the age of 14.

He was tried in absentia and convicted by an Attala County jury.

Authorities issued a warrant for his arrest last month.

Barksdale is currently being held in the Desoto County jail until he is returned to Kosciusko.
