A Waukesha man who had sexual contact with his 15-year-old paperboy and asked a male stranger for sex in a library bathroom will live at 1356 E. Moreland Blvd. when he is released from priosn.
Thomas W. McGargill also sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy – who he gave marijuana to while watching pornography. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2000.
McGargill is 5-feet, 10-inches tall, weighing about 220 pounds with brown air and green eyes. He has several tattoos, including two devils, a five-pointed star, a circle with a star and a skull with claws.
“He will be a life registrant with the sex offender registry and will be submitting to face-to-face registration with law enforcement,” states a news release from the Waukesha Police Department. “He 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. He is to comply with sex offender rules and will be on G.P.S. monitoring while under supervision.”
Further information from the Waukesha Police Department:
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 reoffend.
This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on him 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. 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 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.
