Sex Offender Registration in Wisconsin

In the state of Wisconsin, convicts of select sex offenses may be required to register as a sex offender. This public registry allows citizens the ability to identify people living near them who have histories of sexually abusive behavior. This can be devastating for offenders who are looking to become productive members of society, as being a registered sex offender can severely limit a person’s ability to find a place to live and a decent job.

Effects of Sex Offender Registration

Registration as a sex offender can have a devastating effect on a person’s life. Even if a person has served their sentence and are legitimately looking to start fresh, being labeled as a sexual predator can forever tarnish their name and force a person to live their life under intense scrutiny. This can lead to the destruction of personal relationships, hardship when searching for housing, and extreme prejudice when searching for employment.

Registration involves disclosing the following information:

  • Name and any aliases
  • Personal description
  • Details of the person’s offense
  • Address
  • Vehicle description
  • Name and address of employer

If a person is forced to register, they may not change their name and must inform the Wisconsin Department of Corrections within 10 days of any changes to the above information. Depending on the offense, registration can last anywhere from 15 years to life. Some sex crime convictions bring automatic registration, while others are left to the discretion of the courts.
