76-year-old convicted sex offender set to be released in Waukesha; he will be homeless

WAUKESHA -- Officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department are notifying the public about the release of a convicted sex offender into the community -- set for Tuesday, August 30th. He will be homeless upon his release.

Upon his release, 76-year-old Fortunato Carrion Jr. will be required to complete a face-to-face registration at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department and City of Waukesha Police Department.

Carrion will be a lifetime sex offender registrant and he will be on GPS monitoring.  If he violates the terms of his lifetime registry or GPS conditions, he will be taken back into custody.

According to sheriff's officials, Carrion’s convictions were in 1986 and 1992 for having intercourse with a child under the age of 13.  These offenses were committed against two different victims known to Carrion.

Sheriff's officials said in a statement issued to FOX6 News: "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 the Wisconsin Department of Corrections extensively upon his release."

Sheriff's officials say 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.
