Karsten _____, 34, has been living with his parents in Nashotah, but he would like to move out to his own place in Hartland to be closer to his job but not too far from family.
Hartland’s police chief has warned Karsten _____ he’s not welcome, citing the village’s moratorium on any more sex offenders living there.
In a federal lawsuit, Karsten _____ contends that the village’s 2018 ordinance, applied retroactively, amounts to an illegal ex post facto law, in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The “designated offenders” banned by the ordinance include anyone on the state’s sex offender registry. Karsten _____ is listed there because of a 2007 conviction for sexual assault of a child.
According to the suit, Hartland officials decided a few years ago that too many sex offenders — 32 — already lived there, a “saturation level” 6.75 times higher than other Waukesha County communities.
