Blazek, a registered sex offender convicted of possession of child pornography, asked for an exemption to a Green Bay ordinance that bars registered sex offenders with a conviction involving children from living within 1, feet of schools, parks, and playgrounds. Blazek declined an on-camera interview, but said he is not a threat and wants to live in the home because he owns it.
Esquivel lives in a Green Bay neighborhood near Mason Street and Webster Avenue; she was among several residents of the area who asked for Blazek to be denied the exemption. Since November of65 percent of registered sex offenders who asked for the same exemption in Green Bay have received one. An approval means the applicant may move into the applied-for residence.
An NBC 26 investigation showed that, as of Tuesday night, two applicants whom the board denied an exemption were listed on the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry website as living at the denied addresses. The Wisconsin Department of Corrections maintains the registry website. A Green Bay Police lieutenant said that, after a reporter asked questions about the cases, a police officer went to check on whether the two separate individuals were indeed living at the addresses. Neither was at the separate locations and neither appeared to be living at the locations, according to Lt.
One of the individuals told police he was homeless, VanEgeren said. Thursday, was still listed as the address for which he was denied. Online municipal court records did not list either of the individuals in question as receiving a citation in Green Bay in connection with the residency ordinance. As a result, NBC 26 chose not to identify them in this story. Green Bay Police typically need a complaint or a concern before officers check on whether someone who was denied by the SORB is abiding by that decision, VanEgeren said.
Given the findings in this investigation, VanEgeren said the process could change to include a verification for everyone who is denied at SORB meetings. News Local News. Actions Facebook Tweet .
