[ARCHIVED] Release of Sex Offender to Stevens Point: Bernard Tainter

A Sex Offender will be released in the Stevens Point area on 06/11/2013. The sex offender in this bulletin, Bernard G. Tainter, has been convicted of First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child.

Bernard G. Tainter has completed his required sentence and has been released from prison under the supervision of the Department of Corrections.

The Stevens Point Police Department is releasing the attached information pursuant to Wisconsin 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.

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.

Please feel free to call Sgt. Tony Babl at (715) 346-1515 with any questions you may have.
