The Portage County Sheriff’s Office says a sexually violent offender has been placed in the Town of Alban. Chief Deputy Dan Kontos says they were informed by the State Department of Health Services Tuesday that 43 year old Gregory Loomis is now living at their contracted residential facility at 4068 State Hiway 49. Loomis is classified s a sexually violent person, being convicted in 1992 in Milwaukee County of first degree sexual assault of a child. Kontos says there is a pending hearing in Milwaukee County Circuit Court challenging Loomis’s placement, with recent passage in the legislature of a change to the sexually violent placement law. Loomis remains on electronic monitoring through the Department of Corrections.
