71-year-old convicted sex offender released in Waukesha County -- and he is homeless

WAUKESHA COUNTY -- Waukesha police and sheriff's officials are alerting the public about the release of a convicted sex offender -- who is now homeless.

71-year-old Stanley Blodgett was released on Tuesday, November 22nd.

Officials say Blodgett was required to complete a face-to-face registration at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department and Waukesha Police Department.

Blodgett will be a lifetime sex offender registrant and also on GPS monitoring.

If he violates the terms of his lifetime registry or GPS conditions, he will be taken into custody.

Blodgett’s convictions were in 1963, 1981, and 1996.

In 1996, he was convicted of first degree sexual assault of a child.

Officials said this in a statement:

"We want to make sure that the community remains vigilant and ensure they fully understand the seriousness of this offender, especially since he will not have permanent housing upon release.  He will be required to make regular contact with his assigned agent, advising them of his locations.  This will also be verified through the use of GPS.  He will be required to meet with Wisconsin Department of Corrections extensively upon his release.

With the increase in the number of homeless offenders upon release, citizens are encouraged to go to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections website for more information.  This allows for searches by name and zip code, and also allows community members to sign up for email notifications.  By signing up for email notifications, citizens will be provided with current residence locations of offenders."
