9/21/17 – A hearing was held yesterday in Dodge County court on the release of a high-risk sex offender. Both the state and the county are working together to find suitable housing for Robert Larson Jr., who is currently at the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center in Mauston long after his scheduled released date. Three houses in Dodge County that fit the criteria for placement were under consideration. At yesterday’s hearing, Judge Joseph Sciascia conditionally approved placement at an agreed upon residence and found that Larson met the criteria for conditional release. The location was not specified in court records.
