Sex offender will be released in Altoona


Altoona (WQOW) - The Altoona Police Department was notified that sex offender Thomas Bush, 70,  will be released from custody of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections on, or before, February 7. 

According to court documents, Bush was convicted in Eau Claire County for attempted second degree sexual assault of a mentally ill victim in 1988. After his sentence, prosecutors petitioned a judge to keep him locked up as a sexually violent person. He's been at a secure mental facility ever since.

Last month an Eau Claire County jury found Bush no longer sexually violent.

Because of the conviction, Bush is on the sexual offender registry for the rest of his life. 

He will live in on the 3400 block of Valmont Ave., in Altoona.

His restrictions include:

  • Comply with all requirements of lifetime sex offender registration. 
  • Comply with lifetime GPS requirements.

If you have any questions you are asked to call the sex offender registry at (608) 240-5830.
