WI: A convicted sex offender has filed a federal lawsuit challenging Muskego’s rules that restrict where he can live

[ – 7/28/20]

A convicted sex offender has filed a federal lawsuit challenging Muskego’s rules that restrict where he can live, or whether he can live in the city at all.

In the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Milwaukee, Ronald E. Schroeder said the city’s ordinances violates his constitutional rights by preventing his move from Waukesha to Muskego, where he has been invited to live at the home of a woman who is a longtime friend.

Schroeder, 50, is residing in Waukesha on a temporary living plan after his release from prison in March. He was convicted in 2008 of two counts of second-degree sexual assault of an unconscious person.

Seems they’re really still stuck in the dark ages up north.

I am all for an end to the residency restriction. but I’m not sure if I’d want this clown for my neighbor. Interesting that if he had been prosecuted in 1991 for his child’s murder, and he was getting out now, there would be no public outrage or issues whatsoever. A wife beater, girlfriend abuser, child abuser, child murderer… no problem. But a man who touches his sleeping girlfriend OMG. A-lot of his past Karma seemed to have been reflected in his sentence. Hopefully his Karma doesn’t hurt our chances to eliminate residency restrictions in WI. Muskego’s restriction is… Read more »

Maybe it’s because that’s all we see, but I’m constantly shocked that all these huge cases seem to largely consist of plaintiffs who are either multi-time offenders or their case is a true Hollywood story in terms of what they did. I’m like, what sympathy could these people possibly garner from the judge, not to mention the public? Why don’t we have more cases brought by that person who was guilty of a technicality such as statutory rape, but has otherwise been in a healthy relationship with their “victim” for 20+ years now, with a fully family, and the system… Read more »

You could always use our story to promote sympathy. Long story short, I met my wife who is Chinese after I got out of prison, we were married 6 months later in December of 2010. After 4 years we had a beautiful daughter together, and the state took her from us because I have to register. We were never accused of neglect or charged with any wrongdoing. They terminated my rights because of my status, and terminated my wife’s, who has no criminal history at all, simply because she would not divorce me. During this time, my wife and I… Read more »

Have you tried contacting your Representative and Senators about this? Granted, they will probably be a little leery due to your being such a “horrible” person but perhaps they will see the harms your daughter is suffering and act for that reason.

Your wife should also contact them on behalf of her US citizen daughter.

It may not help, but it cannot hurt.

Wisconsin has a piecemeal approach. In some ways it’s good, because the statewide rules being present 10-15 years ago were going to be horrendous. But, the result has been communities having to go it alone, often competing to have harsher rules than their neighboring communities to keep registrants from moving across the boundary. The most egregious part of these ordinances is the ‘original domicile’ rule, which means that you can’t establish a residence in a community unless you had lived there prior to your conviction. For me, that essentially means that I can never move from my current home if… Read more »

The State of Wisconsin has just over 25,000 registered sex offenders. Where is the outrage?

Norman, 25,000+ registered in WI is enough to alter election results IF all were to vote as one. But which candidate? Outrage in our state is hard to come by given the fact WI is to home of the likes of Jeffery Dalmer & Jacob Patterson & Steven Avery! I express all my own outrage in Rock County courts during failure to provide information (FTR) cases. I’ve won dismissals because of it. You see the problem with selecting certain language in statute ( ex post words) is that they can be used as evidence AND displayed on big TV’s for… Read more »

A few years ago a registered person In NY won the case so No residency restriction at all once off paper. No 1,000ft rule. No 1,998ft rule (LOL) and there has NOT BEEN ONE arrest since their unconstitutional law was overturn. It’s all about corrupt politics, not safety obviously.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
