Portage Co. community may lose battle over violent sex offender placement

Posted:
TOWN OF ALBAN (WAOW) -

A sexually violent person(SVP) was placed into a rural Portage County community Monday, according to a news release from the sheriff's department. Gregory Loomis is the third to be put into a home in the town of Alban.

One of the offenders was removed from the home several months back for violating probation terms.

In the release, the Portage County Sheriff's Department said Loomis was placed into the home on Monday, but the department was not notified until Tuesday. County officials were fighting Loomis' placement after a law went into effect that would keep SVP's in the county where they committed the crime.

Sheriff's officials said there is still a hearing in Milwaukee County over the placement, however they are not sure what impact it will have.
