A registered sex offender has been released from prison and will be moving to Menomonie on Tuesday.

According to a report from the Menomonie Police Department, Romeo Salinas Jr., 23, was originally supposed to be living in the 2900 block of Edgewood Drive, but a problem arose with the rental agreement. In the meantime, he will be housed at the Dunn County Jail when he is released on April 9. MPD will provide information about Salinas Jr.’s residence as soon as arrangements have been made.

Salinas Jr. has served his sentence in the Wisconsin prison system for second degree sexual assault of a child. When he pleaded to the charge, Salinas Jr. told the court he did not know that the girl was 14 years old. He also has a prior conviction of fourth degree sexual assault.

In addition to other restrictions set by his probation agent, Salinas Jr. will be monitored via GPS by the Department of Corrections during his extended supervision. Menomonie Police Chief Atkinson noted that based on a belief that an informed public is a safer public, the authorities are required by Act 440 to notify citizens when and where a registered sex offender will live upon his or her release. Abuse of the  information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated.
