WAUSAU - A sex offender will be released back into the Wausau Community.

Terrance Steppert was found guilty of three counts of first degree sexual assault and armed burglary. He was convicted of those in 1985.

In 2010, Steppert was convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior for exposing himself.

Steppert gets out of prison December 24. He'll live in transitional housing near the Marathon County Courthouse.

The Department of Corrections will monitor Steppert using a GPS for the rest of his life.

You can find out more about Steppert if you go to the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry's website. The link is below.
