Placement of Milwaukee sex offender in Wheatland revoked

The placement of a Milwaukee sex offender on supervised release in a Wheatland house has been revoked.

That action took place in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Thursday, said Todd Terry, Wheatland prosecuting attorney.

The move to revoke the placement of Robert McGee was not unexpected, as state officials had requested the action after determining McGee did fit the statutory definition of a serious child sex offender. That status would make the Wheatland placement not valid because there is a child living next door.

The placement of another sex offender in the same home in the 32200 block of Highway 50 in Wheatland is still pending a hearing in Racine County Circuit Court Tuesday. The state Department of Health Services contends the placement of this individual, Michael McGee of Racine, (not related to Robert McGee) is appropriate because they contend he does not fit the statutory definition of a serious sex offender.

Kenosha County officials have been allowed to intervene in that case and contend the state may not have fulfilled all requirements under the law for such a placement.
