The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department has released information about a registered sex offender who was scheduled to move into the county this week.
Officials say Jonathan W. Prahl, 40, is moving into a residence on Prahl Road southeast of Luxemburg.
Prahl was convicted in 1996 of three counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child.
According to the bulletin released by the Sheriff’s Department, Prahl has served the sentence imposed by the courts and he is not wanted by the police at this time.
“This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public,” the flyer states. “Sex offenders have always lived in our communities, but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share the information with the community.
“Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will NOT be tolerated.”
For more information, contact the department’s non-emergency line at 920-388-3100.
