Jeffrey A. Kastning – Repeat Sex Offender


A registered sex offender was charged Monday with 14 counts of phone harassment for allegedly making a series of sexually suggestive phone calls to area women and health care providers.

An initial appearance for Jeffrey A. Kastning is pending in Outagamie County Circuit Court.

Kastning, 33, formerly of 1500 E. Longview Drive, Apt. 47, Appleton, is accused of making the calls between July 20 and Nov. 1, 2007.

He is a registered sex offender as a result of a 1995 conviction for attempted first-degree sexual assault while armed.

According to the criminal complaint, an Appleton woman told police she received 10 calls from July to October from a strange male who called at odd hours, sometimes in the middle of the night. The caller would not speak but would make sexually suggestive noises.

She received the calls at home and at work.

On Aug. 30, Kastning allegedly called the Brown County Crisis Hotline and told the receptionist the he was “having thoughts of raping women in the community and talked extensively of masturbating and other graphic sex-related topics.”

Using the caller ID number at the crisis hotline, police allegedly traced the cell phone number to Kastning.

Using the phone records, police found another possible victim, an Appleton woman, who told police she received some disturbing phone calls at her residence on Sept. 12.

Also, two Aurora Health Care clinics, in Greenville and Fremont, reported receiving bizarre phone calls from Kastning claiming he wanted to see a female doctor.

Clinic personnel at both locations were disturbed by the graphic nature of the calls and notified police.

Kastning was arrested when he showed up for his “appointment” on Nov. 1 at the Greenville clinic.

At the time of the alleged incidents, Kastning was on probation on charges of disorderly conduct and violation of privacy.

The incidents triggered a probation revocation and he was sentenced May 9 to a year in prison and a year of extended supervision, along with seven months of consecutive jail time.

The new charges carry a repeat offender provision, increasing the maximum penalty for the charges to 31½ years in prison.

Robert Gibbs – Repeat Sex Offender – "he had to do it"


30-year-old Robert Gibbs is charged with attempted criminal sexual conduct after allegedly trying to rape a 15-year-old female he met at a bus stop in Minneapolis.

According to the complaint, he pushed her to the ground and told her, “I have to do this one way or another.”

Dean Raecker, his wife, and the police searched the neighborhood for about an hour until they found the suspect hiding.

They helped stop a convicted sex offender who seemed ready to strike again.

This isn’t the first time Gibbs has been charged with a sex crime.

In 2004, he was convicted of molesting a five-year-old.

According to that complaint, he was arrested after the little girl told her grandmother.

Gibbs served his 32-month sentence at the state prison in St. Cloud.

He was released in December of 2006 and has been on supervised release ever since.
