Officials say Nickerson has no permanent residence — and upon release he will be taken to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department for face-to-face registration.

Nickerson must register with the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry for life. He will also be on GPS monitoring.

If he violates the terms of his lifetime registry or GPS conditions, he will be taken back into custody.

Authorities say Nickerson in 2001 was convicted for the repeated sexual assault of a two-year-old boy, who was living in the same home as Nickerson. In 1984, Nickerson inappropriately touched a five-year-old female child over a three-month period.

Officials said in a statement: “We want to make sure that the community remains vigilant and ensure they fully understand the seriousness of this offender, especially since he will not have permanent housing upon release.  He will be required to make regular contact with his assigned agent, advising them of his locations.  This will also be verified through the use of GPS.”

Police and Sheriff’s officials say you can go to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections website — and search by name and zip code for sex offenders in your neighborhood — and you can also sign up for email notifications.

By signing up for email notifications, citizens will be provided with current residence locations of offenders.
