Sex Offender Will Not Stay Locked Up
A sex offender from Holmen will NOT be committed to a hospital...which means he might be released from prison soon.
La Crosse Judge Dale Pasell rules that the state of Wisconsin has not proved that 40-year-old Chad Schroeder (SHRAY-der) is 'sexually violent.' Pasell says this is one of the most difficult cases he's ever had to decide. Schroeder was still a teenager when he was sent to prison for sexually assaulting underage girls, and the judge says the original crimes certainly were violent. But Pasell rules that it's not clear whether Schroeder might commit similar crimes again, if he's allowed out of prison.
