Electronic Monitoring In Place
ALBAN — The Wisconsin Department of Health Services informed the Portage County Sheriff’s Office that they had placed Gregory Loomis at their contracted facility at 4068 State Highway 49 in the Town of Alban.
The placement actually happened yesterday, but notification was not given until today. Mr. Loomis is classified as a sexually violent person (SVP), being convicted in 1992 of first degree sexual assault of a child in Milwaukee County.
There remains a hearing in Milwaukee County Circuit Court challenging Mr. Loomis’s placement, as the legislature recently passed a change to the SVP law. It is uncertain how this hearing may affect his placement.
Mr. Loomis remains on active electronic monitoring by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The Sheriff’s Office has implemented protocols to respond to any potential violation of his placement conditions and rules.
The Sheriff’s Office will provide more information as we get it.
