Sex Offender to be Released
For the City Times
According to a press release from the Port Edwards Police Department, Colton Rehberg, 29, will be released to Community Supervision administered by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections.
He is NOT wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase or create fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex Offenders have always lived in our communities. It was not until the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry and community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. Threats, intimidation, or harassment of released sex offenders is prohibited by Wisconsin state law, and misuse of the information in this notification to do so will not be tolerated.
