Residents in Birnamwood will soon have a registered sex offender moving into their area. The Shawano County Sheriff’s Office says 41 year old Shermell Tabor of Milwaukee was scheduled to be released from prison today (Sunday). His placement is into a home on Blue Bird Road, southeast of Birnamwood. Tabor was convicted of 2nd degree sexual assault in 1995, and sentenced to 6 years in prison. In 2001 he was deemed to be a sexually violent person, and he was committed to the Mauston Secure Treatment Facility. While there, he was twice convicted of felony battery by an inmate. His placement into Shawano County is being done under the law that was in place at the time of his committment. Authorities say Tabor will be under constant G-P-S monitoring.
