Individuals in the state of Wisconsin who have been convicted of any type of sex offense, like sexual assault, rape or sexual conduct of a minor, face much higher scrutiny than others convicted of many other offenses.

After paying their debt to society and serving time behind bars, persons in Wisconsin who have been convicted of a sex offense must register with a public catalog known as the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry.

What Is The Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry?

  • Name and date of birth
  • Nature of the offense
  • Current place of employment or current residence

Such information is accessible by the public as well as law enforcement.

Along with public disclosure private information, some individuals may be required to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet that supervises their location in relation to their home.
