In Wisconsin, a judge may order a defendant to register for life as a sex offender for any crimes committed under the chapters covering crimes against life and bodily security, sexual morality or children, crimes violating statutes specifically for invasion of privacy or representations depicting nudity, or entry or damage into locked dwellings — provided those crimes were for sexual gratification or to degrade or humiliate the victim.

The list of crimes that may lead to sex offender registration is fairly broad, and includes criminal misdemeanors (peeping, as an example, or making obscene drawings), as well as some very serious felonies. The Department of Corrections describes different “levels” of sex offender, but the offender still has to notify the state where he is, which e-mail addresses he uses, the name and address of every internet profile, employment information and any school information.

As with most states, someone who is convicted of a sex crime in Wisconsin is considered a sexual offender and required to register as such for a period of time much longer than the actual sentence imposed.

Unlike any other criminal, we have recognized that there is something about a sexual offender that requires us to stay on our guard for subsequent offenses.Unfortunately, the registry does not differentiate between the levels of crime. Further, the individual is restricted from being around children or places where he might be expected to run into children.While the law provides that some sex offenders may stop the requirements of the registry fifteen years after the conclusion of their sentences, the judge has freedom to impose a lifetime of registration on any case.Whether you are visiting, considering relocating, or are scouting out a potential business opportunity, we think you will find the community here supportive and welcoming - truly your home Port.Whatever brings you to Port Washington, we know you will love our people, our amenities, our quality of life.The Port Washington-Saukville School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities and provides equal access to designated youth groups.
