Convicted Sex Offender Evicted from Village

A convicted sex offender was found living at a Caledonia motel, but he had to move because he was not originally a village resident.

Caledonia police say a convicted sex offender was living at the 7-Mile Motel, but has since been directed to find housing elsewhere.

Jeremy Sheldon, now 36, was convicted in 1995 Kenosha County for second degree sexual assault of a child. He plead guilty to having sex with a 12-year-old girl he met at a skating rink, according to a press release from Caledonia police Detective Melissa Stardy.

Because the village has an ordinance that says only sex offenders who were residents of the Caledonia at the time of their crime, only those offenders can return to live in the village. Also, the motel is too close to nearby athletic fields thereby constituting a violation of his parole.

Stardy said Sheldon was discovered living at the motel on Sept. 11, and contact was made with him on Sept. 17. 

"The village's ordinance was explained to him and he was told he could no longer stay at the Seven Mile Motel," she said.

Motel employees were also told they could no longer rent a room to Sheldon.

Since then, Stardy confirmed that Sheldon has moved and he has 10 days to report his new address to the state.
