Sex offender released from prison Tuesday

Metro Wire Staff

Stevens Point police have announced a convicted sex offender has completed his prison sentence and will be released back into the community on Nov. 24.

Wayne Moon, 53, will leave Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun for 209 Division St. in Stevens Point on Tuesday, but on Dec. 8 is expected to move to 1504 Water St., according to a news release from SPPD on Monday.

Moon was convicted in 1991 on three counts of second-degree child sex assault. He was also convicted of forgery in 2009.

According to police, Moon offered a 14-year-old girl a ride after meeting at a local beach, and they wound up at a local hotel. Moon sexually assaulted the girl in the hotel room, in front of other adult males, ignoring her requests to stop.

Moon met his second victim, also a 14-year-olf girl, in a local park. The two later attended a party together, and while in the apartment Moon held her down, removed her clothing, and sexually assaulted her after she repeatedly told him to stop.

The third victim was a 13-year-old female runaway. She met Moon at a local festival and accepted his offer to stay at his apartment. Once there, Moon forcibly removed her clothing and sexually assaulted her numerous times.

Moon has used the same approach to meet other teenaged girls following his release in 2014, using a scenario that he’s in need of a babysitter for his own child. He often targets young girls at local parks, beaches, and public events.

Moon is described as a white man, 5’8”, and 200 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

He was sentenced to eight years in state prison for each count, to run consecutively, but he was released in 2009. He was sent back to prison when his parole was revoked in 2014 after he was charged with forgery.

Moon will be placed on supervising with the Wisconsin Dept. of Corrections and monitored by agents through the Division of Community Corrections in Portage Co. He is also subject to lifetime monitoring.

Moon will be a lifetime registrant of the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry.

Conditions of Moon’s release include not having any unsupervised contact with minors, and he is also prohibited from consuming drugs.
