Chavarria is facing eight counts of rape of a minor. Back in March, Chavarria was ordered released on GPS monitoring while awaiting trial.
The sheriff’s office says he removed his ankle monitoring June and fled. They say it wasn’t until two and a half months later that they were notified.
Chavarria remains at large so authorities are now asking the public for help locating him. Investigators say he is known to drive a grey or black Dodge Ram.
