Sex offender released to Neillsville neighborhood

Posted:

Clark Co. (Press Release) - The Clark County Sheriff's Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State 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.  Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.

Troy J. Arp had previously served his sentence and was released from prison.  As of July 5, 2013 he will be residing at N4608 Grand Avenue, Neillsville Wisconsin 54456.  This information is being provided to make sure the public is aware of Mr. Arp's release to the community.

Mr. Arp served a prison sentence for burglary during which Mr. Arp attempted to sexually assault an adult, female, while armed with a knife.  Other conviction behaviors include sexual assault of a pre-pubescent female.   

Name:              Troy J. Arp                                      

Alias:               Troy J. Woods                        

Age:                 45

Sex:                 Male                                 

Race:               White

Height:             5' 7"

Weight:           165lbs.

Hair                  Brown

Eyes:                Blue

Mr. Arp will be supervised by Wisconsin Department of Corrections Agents specializing in intensive supervision.  In addition to the intensive supervision rules he has special conditions of his supervision which include the following: no unsupervised contact with minors; no taverns, liquor stores; no contact with the victim; not to consume alcohol or drugs, comply with standard sex offender rules, cooperate with electronic monitoring, face to face contact with law enforcement required, and comply with all requirements while being a registrant of the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registration Program. 

If Troy J. Arp violates any of these rules or conditions of his supervision he will be taken into custody and placed in confinement.  Witnessed violations should be reported to the Clark County Sheriff's Department.  Any questions contact Det. Kerry Kirn, 715-743-5358.

This sex offender has served the 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, 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.  Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated.
