WI: Racine County judge rules violent sex offender may be released from supervision and leave state

Source: journaltimes.com 4/15/22

RACINE — A violent sex offender from Racine County, Hung ____, 52, has been released from all supervision and is being allowed to live out of state.

This move comes as Racine County is finding it increasingly difficult to find homes for offenders who have served their criminal sentence — both in part due to community resistance to having offenders placed in certain neighborhoods, and because there are a limited number of landlords willing to house sex offenders.

Those compounding factors are not directly related to Hung being released from his commitment under Chapter 980, which refers to the state laws pertaining to the commitment of sexually violent people.

Wow I’m really surprised Wisconsin let him go. I’m actually from the same county, and the other guy in the article, Williams, lives about a mile south of me on the same road. What’s really interesting is it looks like the guy served approximately 15 years in prison, and 15 years in civil commitment. I don’t see how civil commitment can be legal, but they always seem to get away with it. One day I hopefully it’ll be abolished. Probably not in my lifetime though.
