Washington County Sheriff's Office Release Alert

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to WI Statute 301.46(2m) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense.

Ellis R. Fields was released from prison on Nov. 9th, 2023. He resides at 1725 Cth NN in the Township of Jackson. In 2001, Ellis Fields was convicted of Child Enticement and 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of Child. Ellis Fields will be on probation until Mar. 20th, 2041, and will be monitored by WI-DOC Division of Community. Ellis Fields will have numerous rules and restrictions to follow including wearing a live tracking GPS unit.

This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is not wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, but rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.

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 this information with the community. 

Questions: Probation/Parole Agent Monica Daniels 262-335-5665, Sex Offender Registration Specialist Gina Carney 262-335-5665 or Sgt. Michael Hennes at 262-365-5054
