January 19, 2021 – The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to WI Statute 301.46(2m) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection.
The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects a low potential to re-offend.
Russell Newbury will be released from prison on Jan. 19, 2021. After his release he will reside at 1725 Cth NN in the Township of Jackson. In 2003 Russell Newbury was convicted of 1st Degree Sexual Assault of Child.
Russell Newbury will be on probation until Sept. 3 2043 and will be monitored closely by WI-DOC Division of Community. Russell Newbury will have numerous rules and restrictions to follow including wearing a live tracking GPS unit. The GPS monitoring unit will have exclusion zones setup alerting WI-DOC if there is a violation of the exclusion zones rules.
This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is NOT wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, but rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. More information can be located at https://appsdoc.wi.gov/public/faq
