STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) – Rep. Katrina Shankland has announced that convicted sex offender Daniel Wachowiak, who was scheduled to be released in Stevens Point unhoused on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, has been temporarily rehoused.
He was transported by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to secure housing outside of Portage County due to the completion of his prison sentence.
Shankland addressed the matter in a press release saying, “Like many others in Stevens Point, I was seriously concerned upon hearing that Daniel Wachowiak was scheduled to be released in Stevens Point without secured housing. Over the past several days, I have been working closely with the DOC to ensure this individual has secured housing so he can be better monitored.”
Wachowiak will stay at the facility for the next 90 days; however, no plan has been made for what will happen after that time.
