WI: Washington Co. challenging placement of violent sex offender in Town of Trenton

Source: washingtoncountyinsider.com 6/8/24

The chairman in the Town of Trenton is speaking out about steps being taken to proactively protect the people in his community as Washington County officials have been notified about the possible placement of a violent sex offender.

Mike Lipscomb was notified by the Washington County Sheriff prior to the news being released that Outagamie County was looking to place a violent sex offender in a group home in the Town of Trenton.

Lipscomb, Sheriff Martin Schulteis and the county attorney jumped into action in an effort to halt the placement.

“Sheriff Schulteis and I got together and decided to get our attorneys involved and the county attorney is filing what they call an intervention with the courts up in Outagamie County,” said Lipscomb. “If he is granted that intervention the Town of Trenton will send a letter supporting that intervention.

“Currently I’m working with our lawyer and the homeowner’s association to create awareness and survey the neighborhood,” he said.

Lipscomb wrote, “I was notified this week about this potential placement of this offender. I began working with Sheriff Schulteis this week to provide the neighborhood. There is a park and several children in the area. Trenton has instructed our attorney to work in conjunction with the county attorney to petition against such a placement. “

Pure definition of gaslighting.

Law enforcement’s job is to enforce the law and not play judge/jury.

Here they go throwing the word violent again to try to scare the public. If the guy is violent, then why is he being released from prison?
I bet anything if the guy was a murderer being released, there wouldn’t be this kind of opposition.

This whole thing is a disaster of the government’s own making. They created a system for release of people held in the civil commitment process which is so difficult that it’s impossible for counties to comply when the court orders the release of someone. Then they try and bounce things around by trying to shop the problem to another county, but the state govt changed the law to make this nearly impossible as well.


“As one of our initial steps, sheriff’s office staff is actively in the process of canvassing over 120 homes within a 1500-foot radius of the proposed Community Based Residential Facility”

‘Ding-dong..Greetings homeowner! Have I got someone for you! We have a nice gentleman who wants to be your neighbor. He just has a slight background problem. He sexually assaulted people, including a senior over 40 years ago. BTW, do.you have a granny in the house?’

Is that what those sheriff’s d*cks pass their time doing? What a waste of tax payer dollars.
