The Portage County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a community notification meeting next week, in conjunction with the release of a sexually violent offender. The meeting is slated for Wednesday, March 7th, at the Lanark Town Hall on County Road “TT” at 7 pm. 62 year old Ronald A. Stewart served 11 years in prison, then 18 years in a secure mental facility, following the sexual assaults of two girls, under the age of 10, in Dane County in 1989. A year and a half ago a supervised release plan was ordered for Stewart, and he will be released to Community Supervision on or before March 15th, and will be living on Boelter Lake Drive in the Town of Lanark. Again the community notification meeting to discuss the release is next Wednesday at 7, at the Lanark Town Hall.
