Scott E. Ziegler – Repeat Sex Offender

Sarah Tofte of the Human Rights Watch says that 25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years


A registered sex offender who ran a downtown store that became a hangout for young people has been charged with sexually assaulting three girls and abusing two others.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday against Scott E. Ziegler, 37, in Waukesha County Circuit Court accuses him of harboring runaway girls at his Waukesha apartment and giving the girls drugs and alcohol in exchange for sexual favors.

Some of the girls met Ziegler through the store and hung out there and at his home, according to the complaint.

The store, which was named Twisted and closed in November, also sold pornographic magazines and videos, the criminal complaint said.

Ziegler had pleaded no contest in September 1989 to arson and second-degree sexual assault. But John Dipko, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections, said Ziegler’s supervision in that case ended in August 2006.

Ziegler was charged Thursday with repeated sexual assault of a child; two counts of second-degree sexual assault; second degree sexual assault, use of force; two counts of child enticement; three counts of interfering with child custody; and five counts of child abuse, intentionally causing harm.

Ziegler is being held in the Waukesha County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
