WAUSAU (WAOW) — Marathon County officials gathered for a presentation on sex offenders in the community on Tuesday night.
The meeting went over the basics of the sex offender registry list and how sex offenders are monitored in the community. There are 476 registered sex offenders in Marathon County.
Jessica Lind, a representative from the Women’s Community in Wausau said that having access to the list is often part of the healing process for victims.
“It’s important that the victims know they can find out about what has happened with their case. When the offender is released from jail, how they’re going to be supervised. That’s really another important part of the healing journey for victims,” Lind said.
