After last month’s motion to dismiss charges, a LaFollette man pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 90 days in the county jail.
Brian Keith Wilson, 43, was living too close to a park, school, head start and recreation center when he met with his probation officer on Aug. 3, 2012.
“It came to my attention that the address where Mr. Wilson was living since 2007 was too close to several things,” probation officer Sarah Dunn testified last month.
Wilson contended he had been given permission to live there by his former probation officer.
According to Dunn, Wilson refused to move when she informed him he was too close to the facilities.
“His response was he’s not moving. He had been allowed to move there in 2007. He felt like he was grandfathered in,” Dunn told the court.
The motion to dismiss was overruled.
On Monday, Wilson pleaded guilty to violating the sex offender registry laws. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail with 18 days credit for time already served.
Wilson was convicted of attempted rape and sexual battery in 2002.
