Judge, Michael Judge rejected the State's planned placement of 74-year-old convicted sex offender, Jerome Litscher, at the home on 7th Road in the Town of Pound.
Neighbors objected to the placement since it would place the offender near residences where young children live. Although the placement met the guidelines of current state law, the judge agreed with the concern raised by neighbors.
Judge says, he received 90 letters in opposition to this placement, as well as a petition with 120 signatures. The placement of another offender at the same residence is scheduled to be heard in Marinette County Circuit Court on Monday, May 1st at 2pm.
