CASE(S):         Community Notification

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to WI 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.

James C. Castro Sr.  will be released from prison on May 11th, 2021.  After his release he will reside at 1725 Cth NN in the Town of Jackson while he attempts to locate a residence and employment. James C. Castro Sr. was convicted of 2 counts of 4th Degree Sexual in Washington County on 9-17-2007, and 1 count of 3rd Degree Sexual Assault in Washington County on 12-1-2015. Victims of James C. Castro Sr. were known to James. James C. Castro Sr. will be on probation until Nov. 15th, 2024 and will be monitored closely by WI-DOC Division of Community. James C. Castro Sr. will have numerous rules and restrictions to follow.

This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on him by the courts. He is NOT wanted by law enforcement at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, but 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.  More information can be located at https://appsdoc.wi.gov/public/faq
