A convicted sex offender is moving to Butler Avenue, and Superior Police want neighbors to know about it.
A community information meeting on the release of Richard Morisett Jr. will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Government Center board room. Today, Superior Police will begin knocking on doors and slipping fliers into mailboxes within a three-block radius of Morisett’s new residence at 1914 Butler Ave., according to Capt. Matt Markon with the Superior Police Department.
Morisett, 34, was convicted of first degree sexual assault of a child in 1996 for sexual contact with a 6-year-old female child who was known to him, according to information provided by the police department. He is being released from the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center where he has been housed on a civil commitment as a sexually violent person.
Based on his criminal history and his commitment at Sand Ridge, the Douglas County Sex Offender Notification Committee determined that a level three notification – the highest level – be conducted concerning Morisett’s release. This includes press releases, mailings, door-to-door fliers and the informational meeting.
Morisett is a white male with brown hair and eyes, according to the Wisconsin sex offender registry site. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds.
