An arrest warrant has been served for convicted sex offender Orlando Paul Cisneros. It is on a Show Cause Order, meaning his probation may be revoked.

A hearing is set for August 3.

Cisneros caused controversy when he was sentenced to probation after being convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl. He could have been sentenced to nearly 13 years in prison.

Olando paul cisneros turned himself in to members of the U.S. Marshall's fugitive task force this afternoon.

It means Cisneros could have his probation revoked -- and be sent to prison.

There is a show-cause hearing scheduled for August 3 to consider whether Cisneros did violate his probation, and if so, what will happen.

District Attorney Robert Hecht says the reason for this hearing is two failed drug tests.

Under state sentencing guidelines -- Judge Matthew Dowd sentenced Cisneros to 13 years -- but then suspended that sentence.. and instead placed him on three years probation.

If cisneros did violate his probation... the original suspended sentence would still be in play.

It's up to Judge Dowd to determine that.

There is also a restitution hearing scheduled for August 6 to determine if Cisneros must pay for the hospitalization of the girl he was convicted of raping.

Assistant D.A. Dan Dunbar says that may be taken up at the August 3 hearing.
