Oct. 24, 2018 – Washington Co., WI – The Washington County Sheriff issued this post below. This is not a notification about a NEW registered sex offender but an update on a registered sex offender who was released in February 2018.
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 the potential to re-offend.
Richard C. Meyer Jr., was released from prison on 2-6-18. He was recently reclassified as a sex offender. After his release he has been residing at 1725 Cth NN in the Town of Jackson while he attempts to locate a residence and employment.
On 1-24-2003 Richard C. Meyer Jr. was convicted of 1 count of 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, and 1 count Repeated Sexual Assault of The Same Child. The victim of Richard C. Meyer Jr. knew Richard before the offenses. Richard C. Meyer Jr. will be on probation until Aug. 2019 and will be monitored closely by WI-DOC Division of Community.
Richard C. Meyer Jr. will have numerous rules and restrictions to follow including wearing a live tracking GPS unit. Since Richard’s release in February he has not had any probation violations resulting in a revocation of his probation.
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
