Sex Offender Living on E. Main St. After Release From Prison

Lisa J. Farkas has a history of luring women into an apartment with another man before tying up and sexually assaulting victims.

A 45-year-old Waukesha woman has been released from prison into Waukesha and will live at 1104 E. Main St.

Lisa J. Farkas targets adult females, according to a news release from the Waukesha Police Department. She has a history of working with a male accomplice to lure an adult female to an apartment. They would tie up the female victim and sexually assault her together in the late 1980s. On another occasion, Farkas burned one female victim with a lighter during sexual activity. 

Farkas is described as being 5-feet 7-inches tall, 176 pounds with brown, thinning hair and green eyes. She has an 8-inch scare on her lower left abdomen and two tattoos – a J.M. broken heart on her right arm and a broken heart on her left arm.

The accomplice in the case, Jack Moore, was also found guilty in the assaults. He remains in prison, according to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections' sex offender registry. Moore was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the rapes, according to the Milwaukee Sentinel.

Farkas previously was released in the community in 2000 and was the first woman to prompt a community-wide notification, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Her probation was revoked in 2010, court records show.

She will be a life registrant with the sex offender registry and will be submitting to face-to-face registration with law enforcement. She is to have no unsupervised contact with minors, no taverns/bars/liquor stores, no contact with victim and not to purchase/possess or consume alcohol or illegal drugs.  She is to comply with sex offender rules and will be on G.P.S. monitoring while under supervision.

The Waukesha Police Department Crime Prevention/Community Relations Bureau is available to help set up Block Watch groups and provide you with useful information on personal safety.  Crime Prevention may be reached at 524-3769 or 524-3774.

More from the police department:

The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense.  Further, her criminal history places her in a classification level, which reflects the potential to reoffend.

This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on her by the courts. The offender, under the supervision of the Department of Corrections, Division of Community Corrections, will be living in the location listed below.  She 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 wasn't until Act 440 (June 1997) that law enforcement is now 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 understand that such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notifications.  We believe the only person who wins if community notification ends is the sex offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

And how can u compare a drunk to a rapist? Maybe ur preoccupation makes u both? Can't fix stupid. How can u say its less concerning when she raped older women as compared to a child? Rape is rape...she wasn't "brainwashed" by a man....she enjoyed doing what she did. That's why she is registered...she is a sick hag who didnt deserve freedom...ask her victims....not victim....she had a lot

"Your laws are not protecting the community but putting children in greater danger." Rudy, explain your supposed fact that laws showing where these sick and vile sex offenders live and breathe are putting children in greater danger. Now a question for you Rudy. If you had a daughter, knowing what this woman has done, would you allow her to babysit for you?

I am not Rudy but, when people are preoccupied with the person on the registry, it can give parents a false sense of security. Most often, sexual offenders are family members and not someone simply living across the street. Would you have entrusted the care of your child with Sandusky? He was not on the registry and passed all attendant background checks.

Drunk drivers kill over 3,000 children per year. They also don't discriminate. I'm much rather have a sex offender living next door (I do) than a drunk driver.

Militant Duck? People who have nothing to lose, have no social connections, and have no hope of obtaining any are more dangerous to children and the community. I understand Militant Duck you let anyone babysit your daughter as long as they are not on a registry. Good for you! But I do know one thing for a certainty, that there is almost a zero chance this woman will re-offend sexually and about 100% chance she will be harassed and threatened. What do you think that says about the registry? Do you think it can keep any credibility with the facts as they are? All you have is, "vile and sick." and the outcome of it being a more dangerous community. You believe it otherwise and I know you will use all the violence in the world to show you are right. That I am sure of.
