Police announced Thursday, June 2, that another sex offender will soon be released into the Waukesha community, the second such notification authorities sent out in a week.
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said in a news release that 64-year-old Rickie Nickerson is expected to be released into the city June 7 and will be homeless. Nickerson will be taken to the sheriff's department for face-to-face registration the day he is released and placed on GPS monitoring.
Nickerson is a lifetime sex offender registrant, according to the state's online registry. He was convicted of repeatedly sexually assaulting two young children, one, a 5-year-old girl, in 1984 and the other, a 2-year-old boy, in 2001.
'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,' said Lt. Philip Carini in a statement.
According to the release, Nickerson will be required to make regular contact with his assigned probation agent and advise that agent of his locations. Police will compare and verify that information with Nickerson's GPS monitoring.
If Nickerson violates the terms of his lifetime registry or GPS conditions, he will be taken back into custody.
Earlier this week, Waukesha police announced that 47-year-old James P. Radtke — who is also a lifetime registrant on the state's sex offender registry — will be living at 1356 E. Moreland Boulevard.
Radtke was also required to submi to face-to-face registration and is prohibited from having unsupervised contact with minors, cannot patronize taverns, bars or liquor stores and cannot have contact with either of his victims — two underage girls.
