ORIGINAL: A child sex offender is being released on March 8 into the Waukesha community without having a permanent residence. 

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department and the City of Waukesha Police Department have been working with the Department of Corrections-Probation and Parole Office regarding the anticipated release of a homeless sex offender into the community. 

Kenneth McDonald will be released on Tuesday.

McDonald has no permanent residence at this time and upon release he will be taken to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department for face-to-face registration. 

McDonald will be a lifetime sex offender registrant and also on GPS monitoring. 

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

McDonald is considered a serious offender with a high probability to reoffend. 

McDonald’s conviction was in 2005 for a 2nd degree sexual assault of a child. 

This offense was committed against three and six year old females that were residing in the same residence as him.

McDonald inappropriately touched both victims, and also admitted to being in possession of hundreds of images of child pornography. 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.
