Posted: Updated:

A sex offender who failed to return to a work-release program in Sioux City has turned himself in to law enforcement.
   The Sioux City Journal reports 25-year-old Michael Euchner II turned himself in to the Sioux City Police Department Thursday. According to the Iowa Department of Corrections, Euchner had removed his GPS monitoring bracelet while working on July 21 and then left his job.
   Euchner is serving a lifetime sex offender special supervision sentence following the completion of a 10-year prison term for a 2009 sexual abuse conviction.
   Euchner is being held in the Woodbury County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail. It was not immediately clear if Euchner has an attorney.
