This past Thursday, Dec. 20th, 33 year old, Jamie Stephenson was released to live in the rural Dunn county township of Otter Creek, near Wheeler. Stephenson was three times previously convicted of sexual assault in 2004, 2006, and 2009. His placement in this location raised the concern of area residents, including Kelly Hayes and her husband, Cecil Hayes. In addition to hearing from them, Dunn County Sheriff, Dennis Smith, also tells us the state is exploring placing a second sex offender at the same residence at some point in the future.
