The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department is making the community aware that a man convicted of second-degree sexual assault has been released from jail.

According to a news release from Lt. Patrick Esser, the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department and city of Waukesha Police Department worked with the Department of Corrections-Probation and Parole Office concerning Adam S. Hetke, 26, who was released on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Esser said Hetke has no permanent residence at this time and upon release was taken to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department for face-to-face registration. Hetke 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.

Hetke was convicted of second-degree sexual assault with use of force in 2007. Hetke's victim was an adult female staff member at a facility in which he was housed. Esser said Hetke grabbed the victim inappropriately and attempted to remove her clothing, but the victim was able to escape his grip and get away.

Hetke has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is not wanted by the police at this time.

But Hetke is considered a serious offender with a high probability to reoffend, Esser said.

'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,' Esser said. '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.'

Questions should be directed to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department at (262) 548-7137.
