FDL County Pushing for Expedited Appeal

Fond du Lac County is pushing for an expedited appeal of the placement of a violent sex offender from Racine County. The county continues to appeal the placement of Preston Rintamaki at a home along Nitschke Road in the town of Eldorado. County officials questions whether a new law signed by Governor Walker back in March applies – forcing violent offenders to be kept in their home counties. They also argue the placement was made because the state knows the home is rented specifically for sex offenders. The county also believes there could be a suitable location found in Racine County.
