I provided testimony to the court earlier today (October 6, 2015) requesting the court not place Clint Rhymes in our district at 1124 E Van Beck. The court thus ordered the state to find another location outside of our area. We were in this predicament due to the state requesting the court allow them to place this individual in our area.
The state needed to go before the court for this placement due to the Serious Sex Offender Residency Restriction Ordinance I passed last year.
Prior to last year the state could place any serious sex offender wherever they wanted in the city limits of Milwaukee. Since we were one of the very few communities in the county that did not have such an ordinance our numbers of these sex offenders were going up in relation to the suburbs.
I am still working on this issue as the state has been going to the court attempting to get placement which is in violation of our city ordinances.
