The Sheboygan Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 301.46(2m) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release when, in the discretion of the agency, the release of information will enhance public safety, awareness, and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. Further, his criminal history places him in a classification level which reflects the potential to re-offend.
This sex offender has served the sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is NOT wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it was not until the Sex Offender Registration and Community Notification Law was enacted that law enforcement was able to share this information with the community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will NOT be tolerated.
Michael J. Rickaby will be paroled when he reaches his maximum release date the week of December 3, 2019, after serving his sentence for: Kidnapping.
Michael J. Rickaby will be residing at 3402 Wilgus Ave and will be under 24 hour electronic monitoring. He will be supervised by agents from probation/parole. He will continue to participate in long-term programming while on parole. In addition to the intensive supervision rules, to which he must adhere, Michael J. Rickaby will be subject to additional specific rules. These rules include: no contact with any of his victims; he may not be anywhere children congregate; and he may not reside in the same residence with any minor children. Michael J. Rickaby is registered with the Sex Offender Registry and will be escorted upon his release from confinement, directly to the Sheboygan Police Department where a face-to-face registration with law enforcement will take place. If Michael J. Rickaby violates any of these rules or conditions of his parole, he will be taken into custody and placed in confinement, pending review of possible revocation proceedings. Witnessed violations should be reported to the Sheboygan Police Department.
