Washington County Sex Offender Placement Still Being Decided

A status hearing will be held in Washington County today concerning the placement for a 62-year-old sex offender. Terry Olson is eligible for release from the Sand Ridge Treatment Facility in Juneau County. Last September, Judge Andrew Gonring issued an order that the state Department of Health Services should attempt to find a suitable location in Fond du Lac County for Olson because an appropriate site could not be found in Washington County. DHS found a location for Olson in the Town of Eldorado in the fall of 2016, but he wasn’t placed there. Olson was convicted of sexual assault charges in 1990.
