Christopher J. Seeley – Repeat Sex Offender – Civil Commitment

An Eau Claire man will remain in a secure mental health facility after he was found to be a sexually violent person.

An Eau Claire County jury made that finding Monday against Christopher J. Seeley following a six-day trial.

Judge William Gabler ordered Seeley to the custody of the state Department of Health and Family Services for an indefinite period of time.

The state Justice Department in 2007 filed a sexual predator petition against Seeley, claiming he is a sexually violent person and should be committed for treatment.

According to the state’s petition:

Seeley suffers from mental conditions that predispose him to engage in acts of sexual violence.

Seeley is dangerous because his mental disorders make it likely he will engage in future sexual violence.

Seeley, 34, was sentenced to a year in prison in 2005 for sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman.

He pleaded no contest to a felony count of third-degree sexual assault.

According to court records, Seeley had sexual contact with the woman Sept. 28, 2003, without her consent while they were in a car in Carson Park.

Seeley was also convicted of third-degree sexual assault in Eau Claire County in 1999.
