A jury is being selected today in Waupaca County Court in the trial of 43 year old Timothy Talady. The New London man is currently being held as a sexually violent person at Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center in Mauston, where he’s been housed for the past two years. The trial is to determine if he should continue to be held there, or released back into society. Talady served 3 years in prison beginning in 2009 on a conviction of felony child abuse, a charge reduced in a plea agreement from first degree sexual assault of a child. Following his release from prison, Talady was on 5 years extended supervision, when he violated terms of that supervision. He was then sent back to prison until being transferred to the Sand Ridge Treatment Facility in 2015.
