Adult residents are invited to a sex offender release meeting Oct. 14 at the 16th Street COP house.

Vaughn Hansen, 59, will be released on or before Oct. 14 to a home in the 1400 block of Washington Avenue after serving prison time for three counts of first degree sexual assault of a child. He was convicted in 1990 of assaulting three children under the age of eight.

Hansen is not wanted by the police, the Racine Police Department is stressing, and the meeting is a chance for the public to learn more about what Hansen’s release entails:

  • Supervised release
  • Required to wear GPS bracelet
  • Lifetime registering in the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry Program

Because of the nature of this meeting, parents are asked to leave children at home.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14 at the Richard V. Polzin COP House, 1900 16th Street.
