Edward Lieber – Repeat Sex Offender – Used Halloween to lure children


A registered sex offender won’t be handing out candy on Halloween anytime soon.

During a sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer ordered that Edward Lieber, as part of his sentence, never put up a Halloween display or pass out candy or gifts to children.

Lieber, 35, was found guilty on three felony counts of intentionally photographing a minor without consent as a registered sex offender.

The Waupun Police Department was contacted by three Waupun parents in regard to Lieber taking pictures of their young children, ages 2, 3 and 4, while they were trick-or-treating at his Madison Street home last Halloween.

A woman told police that the children entered a “Halloween-type structure” where Lieber was sitting inside with a camera.

Witnesses said that as the children entered the structure, Lieber followed them and proceeded to take pictures of the children without asking permission, according to the criminal complaint.

Lieber is listed on the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old Fairwater girl in 1993, according to the criminal complaint.

Lieber told police that he took approximately five to six photographs that were intended for his father, according to the complaint.

Bauer also ordered Lieber to serve 60 days in the Dodge County Jail followed by two years of probation.

Rodney Martineau – Repeat Sex Offender – GUILTY

A Massachusetts registered sex offender was found guilty of loitering and interference with custody after he was found with a teenage boy in a Salem parking lot.

Rodney Martineau, 42, was found in a Main Street parking lot on Jan. 13 with a 15-year-old boy from Methuen, Mass., police said. The boy had snuck out of his home without his parents’ knowledge, police said.

Investigators said they learned that Martineau was communicating with the boy on his computer and set up a meeting. The boy was taken into protective custody and released to his parents.

An officer took the boy aside and began questioning him. He said the boy told them that he had been chatting online with Martineau and snuck out of his home in Methuen, Mass., to go with him. Police said that while the boy went willingly, he was beginning to have second thoughts. “The male subject told him he was 27 years old, not 42,” Patten said. “The boy also told us that he was scared and started looking at street signs. He had snuck out of his house to meet the man, and the man had driven him up to Salem, N.H.”

Martineau was eventually taken into custody and charged with loitering and interference with custody. He was found guilty Tuesday, and the case was referred to probation for a pre-sentence investigation.

Salem police said they forwarded the investigation to Methuen police because Martineau allegedly contacted the boy there.
