The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, in cooperation with the Sex Offender Notification Committee, is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statue 301.46(2m). This statute now allows law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender's release when; in the discretion of this committee, the release of the information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection.
The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.
This offender is NOT wanted by the Sheriff's Department at this time. This notification is not intended to alarm the community; but rather it is our belief that an informed community is a safer community.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities after release from incarceration. With the enactment of Statue 301.46(2m) in 1997, law enforcement is now allowed to share this information with the community. Abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass a registered sex offender will not be tolerated. Questions about placement of the offender should be directed to the State Department of Corrections, 608-240-5830. You can also view the web site: http://offender.doc.state.wi.us/public
