Radtke must register for life with the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry, and he will be submitted to face-to-face registration with law enforcement officials. He is to have no unsupervised contact with minors, and may not go to taverns, bars or liquor stores. He may have no contact with victims and cannot possess or consume illegal drugs.

He will be on GPS monitoring while under supervision.

Police say Radtke’s criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to reoffend.

Radtke has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts.

    “He is to have no unsupervised contact with minors, and may not go to taverns, bars or liquor stores. He may have no contact with victims and cannot possess or consume illegal drugs.”

    He also wasn’t supposed to molest kids, but look how that turned out. Verdict-sentence-serve-bullet. Sick of them putting these creeps in my town.

    You know, I know James Radtke personally. Before you judge and say “shoot him in the head” How about getting to know him first? He has admitted he did wrong. He used to be in a biker gang too and his “underaged” wasn’t a preteen it was an individual who swore up down and sideways she was over 20 and he didn’t learn until later that she was underaged. By then it was too late. His revocations were because he had a girlfriend. A lady who had no kids. But the Parole officer didn’t like the fact he had a girlfriend and was getting his life back together.
