WAUKESHA — A convicted sex offender will be released in Waukesha on Tuesday, July 11th, and he will be homeless.

32-year-old Christopher O’Bright will be required to complete a face-to-face registration at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department and City of Waukesha Police Department upon his release.  O’Bright will be a lifetime sex offender registrant and also on GPS monitoring.  He will be required to meet with Wisconsin Department of Corrections extensively upon his release.  If he violates the terms of his lifetime registry or GPS conditions, he will be taken into custody.

According to law enforcement, O’Bright’s convictions occurred in 2000 and 2003 for sexual assault of a child inside an institutional facility.
