CASE(S): Community Notification

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.

Steven Wienke will be released from prison on Sept. 7th 2021. After his release he will reside at 1725 Cth NN in the Township of Jackson. Steven Wienke was convicted of one count of First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, one count of Second Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, and one count of Causing Mental Harm to a Child. Steven Wienke will be on Community Supervision until 2034 and he will be monitored closely by WI-DOC Division of Community Corrections agents; he will have numerous rules and restrictions and will be under GPS monitoring.

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. More information can be located at
