Sex offender to be released Tuesday
Bart E. Jenson Released
MONROE - A convicted sex offender will be released into the community Tuesday.

Bart E. Jenson, 38, will live at 1317 17th St., Monroe.

Jenson was convicted in December 2001 of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old female acquaintance by physical force in her home twice on the same day, according to a press release issued by Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley. Jenson also groped a 14-year-old female acquaintance at a rural outdoor location, Kelley said.

Jenson is 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighs 330 pounds. He is white with brown hair and brown eyes. Jenson also wears glasses.

Accord-ing to Kelley, Jenson will be under 24-hour electronic monitoring. He will be closely supervised by Wisconsin Probation and Parole agents, and subject to frequent, unannounced visits.

In addition, Jenson can't have contact with the victim; have unapproved meetings with minors; drink alcohol or use illegal drugs; enter bars, taverns or liquor stores; and can't have any romantic relationships without prior approval.

Jenson will be taken into custody if he violates any terms of his release.

Anyone who witnesses Jenson violate his release terms should contact the Monroe Police Department at (608) 329-2400, or report the violations to any other law enforcement agency.

Jenson will be required to register as a sex offender. He will also be escorted to the Monroe Police Department for a face-to-face registration with police officers after he is released from prison.

The press release announcing Jenson's release was meant to inform the public, not to encourage people to harass Jenson, Kelley said.

"It's meant to emphasize the need to practice protective behaviors with your children," he said.
