Amarillo, Texas - An accused child predator from Amarillo will soon head back to Florida after he waived his extradition hearing.

The Potter County Sheriff's Office says 22 year old Joel Marquez remains in jail locally until Florida officials take him back to Stuart, Florida.

Amarillo police officers arrested Marquez last week at his Amarillo apartment. Police say Marquez exposed himself via webcam to what he thought was a 14 year old girl in Martin County, Florida. Sheriff's deputies conducted the online sting and got the arrest warrant for Marquez.
