One person is behind bars Sunday after deputies from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department conducted 94 sex offender compliance checks for trick or treat Saturday.

RCSD Sgt. Scott Krogh issued a written statement Saturday stating deputies conducted the checks throughout the county. One person was arrested for violating conditions, and two were not home as required.

In general, convicted sex offenders are required to be inside their homes one hour before and after trick or treat and for the entirety of the event. They are also prohibited from participating in any Halloween activities and to be home during trick or treat.

“Racine County during Halloween trick-or-treat hours. The sex offenders under supervision of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections sign a Halloween Contract,” Krogh said in the statement. “Racine County trick-or-treat hours. There were two rule violations noted, with one offender brought to the Racine County Jail and two offenders that were not home as required.”
