SALEM LAKES, Wis. (CBS 58) — Salem Lakes residents are finally feeling at ease. On Tuesday, June 1, a Kenosha County judge ruled against housing a person listed on the registry in their backyard.

The courtroom was packed and testimony was tense, but ultimately, the judge ruled Dale Peshek cannot live on Camp Lake Road.

Another hearing ended, still with no home for the person convicted of a sex offense, who appeared in court by video.

More cases of leprosy break out in bubbletown Salem Lakes! NIMBY!

Keep those sex offenders out of our perfect neighborhood! By sticking fingers in our ears, wearing tinfoil hats, and yelling repeatedly “Blocking these two guys who served their time will stop all sex offenses form happening here!”, we don’t have to admit 95% of sex offenses can occur in our neighborhood by NON-REGISTRANTS and that everything we believe is emotional crap.


Appropriately named.

Wi’s state barr association is chuck full of gutless [MODERATORS NOTE: Edited out political comment] judges.
What is worse is they do not protect the sovereignty of their own branch in stare decis & final order from political pressure.

Good now law enforcement agencies can get back to work finding somewhere else for these sex offenders to live.
There’s no way law enforcement can keep this up for another decade its only gonna get worse especially with today’s cancel culture people are gonna keep protesting against sex offenders moveing into their nice neighborhoods.
Then the situation will become a racial issue when law enforcement starts dumping sex offenders off in low income neighborhoods that are mostlly populated by Mexicans and blacks.
I should do a survey on how many sex offenders when paroled move into nice middle class neighborhoods compared to how many sex offenders are paroled into low income neighborhoods.
What poor people kids lives dont matter as much as the the rich peoples kids
If people really stop and see how this game is being played they’ll see Megan’s law is affecting us all.

Good luck 😈

A registered person would not want to live in Salem Lakes anyway. They have very stringent presence restrictions. Parks, theaters, library, trails, ski-hills, anything else with park or child in it’s name.

In some ways, I’m glad the judge ruled this way. Now there’s a case that can be appealed to higher courts and the reams of academic and governmental data can be presented. As well, this decision is clearly contrary to what SCOTUS said in Smith about being, “free to move where [we] wish and to live and work as other citizens, with no supervision.” This constant involvement of myriad agencies, courts, and judges monitoring and controlling our every move has zero foundation in Smith or CT DPS. This case may well force the issue to a head. Something has to change to make it all stop.

I only wish I knew the very specifics of what Peshek’s and Thelkeld’s “sexual assault against teenage boys” entail. (Many state laws don’t seem to draw too clear a line, if any line at all, between violent assault and mere inappropriate touching, as long as the (“)victim(“) in a minor; hell, I don’t think many of these same state law even consider it if it were the teenage boys who initiated the contact!)

The mere fact that they’re teenage boys automatically makes the ‘perpetrators’ some kind of egregious danger that they may not actually be; which is why it eats me up to just know what the men actually did.

And then, even if the assaults were actual real violent assaults, what is the likelihood that they’d do it again, after serving 20+ years behind bars?

What did all of the achieve? Cheap social favors? A sense of superiority?

After looking at his appeal in 2011, I saw that this poor guy’s been in for civil commitment since 2006 and the non-State paid-for Psychiatrist already said he’s not dangerous to the public. Of course, the Judge sided with the one the State paid for because she wants to be reelected. This is fear politics at work. I hope he can sue the State for false imprisonment and charge them for each day he was in. He’s done his time: I hope he gets released on his own terms.

Unless the law has changed, he HAS to reside in Kenosha County until his probation is complete.

Pleasant Prairie has banishment laws too, or did. I was going to move in with my cousin after her youngest turned 18, but she lives too close to a park, so I stayed in CA.

Luckily there is no shortage of bad neighborhoods in Kenosha, so this offender’s case manager should be able to find a place.
