A young man in Wisconsin was recently taken into police custody. Authorities claim he violated registry requirements to which he became obligated after a past conviction for sex crimes. The 19-year-old was arrested and then released from a county jail.
In 2012, the man was convicted of sexually assaulting a girl when he was 14. The court ruling required him to register as a sex offender in the state in which he lives from that point forward. Earlier in 2016, he apparently registered in another state, saying he was homeless.
Because he was apparently without a permanent residence, the court ordered that supervision of the man be increased at the time. He was also supposed to report where he was sleeping at night. At some point, his vehicle was allegedly seen parked in an area where he had been told he was not allowed to stay because it was near to a child day care facility.
The man currently faces charges associated with violation of registry required for sex crimes offenders in Wisconsin and another state. Police also arrested him on drug charges, after claiming to have found marijuana in his vehicle while they were investigating a shooting. Reportedly, his car was seen leaving the scene after a man had been shot in his abdomen. Facing multiple charges in various states can be a very complicated process that is typically best addressed alongside experienced criminal defense assistance. An attorney would be able to explain the laws of an individual state and any available options that may increase one's chances of obtaining a positive outcome in court.
