The offender was convicted in the State of Wisconsin in 1998 of First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child and sentenced to 15 years in prison. The victim was a 12 year old female.
The offender has not yet been assigned a risk level by SOSRA (Sex Offender Screening and Risk Assessment).
This person is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public. This information cannot be used to threaten, intimidate, or harass Registered Sex Offenders. Citizen abuse will not be tolerated. Such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to do community notification.

Baxter County Sheriff
