A Waupaca man who has been housed as a violent sex offender for 20 years, is getting released. Waupaca County Circuit Judge Ray Huber Tuesday granted the supervised release petition for 47 year old Robert L. Addington. Addington was convicted in three sexual assault cases involving children between 1990 and 1993, and in June of 1999 he was deemed to be a sexually violent person. In a civil committment, he was placed at the Wisconsin Resource Center for housing and treatment. A petition for release was granted earlier this year, but in February that release was stayed. Tuesday Judge Huber ordered Addington’s release expeditiously. Waupaca County authorities say it will occur this wee. His housing placement will be in the Town of Weyauwega.
