A recent arrest has the author of Wisconsin's sex offender disclosure laws looking to update them. State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) says certain jobs can be a dangerous place for sexual predators to work.
Last week, registered sex offender Scott Ziegler, 37, was charged with 14 felony counts accusing him of a luring teenagers into a life of sexual abuse and drugs. Zieger is the owner of a store in Waukesha that sold drug paraphenila and pornography that was a hang out for teenagers. Darling has begun drafting an update to the disclosure laws that would require offenders with certain jobs like porn and paraphenilia sales, to report their occupation to police. Darling has been working with the state Attorney General to ensure her ideas are constitutional. She emphasizes that no matter what laws are passed, online activity remains a dangerous method for sexual predators to lure kids.
