Michael Clements – Repeat Sex Offender – Gets Life for — Repeating

A sex offender from La Crosse was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday under the “three strikes and you’re out” law.

Michael Clements, 37, will have no chance for freedom, after he was convicted last month of molesting a child under 16.

Prosecutors said he fondled a 14-year-old’s breasts in December of 2007.

His other two convictions came in 1999 for second-degree child sex assault, and attempted child sex assault.

La Crosse County Circuit Judge Todd Bjerke was required to hand down the mandatory life sentence.

Assistant District Attorney Tania Bonnett justified it, saying history is the best predictor of future behavior.

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
