Steven W. Mier – Repeat Sex Offender – Exploits Runaway child

A registered sex offender living in Fond du Lac was arrested Saturday after police found a 16-year-old girl inside his home.

Steven W. Mier, 157 Third St., Apt. 6, is in the Fond du Lac County Jail.

The girl, who police say is a runaway from Madison, was hiding in a closet of the apartment when the Fond du Lac Police Department’s Sex Offender Compliance Team (SOCT) assisted Probation and Parole during a routine check at about 9 p.m.

The SOCT is a group of police officers who work with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to routinely check on registered sex offenders in Fond du Lac to assure they are complying with regulations.

On Nov. 16, 1999, Mier, 29, was sentenced in Calumet County to eight years in prison on one count of second-degree sexual assault of a child, according to the Wisconsin Circuit Court Web site.

Police also found explicit photos of children on his cell phone, Klein said.

“I think this just shows how effective the Sex Offender Compliance Team can be,” Klein said. “This is exactly why we have these guys out there checking on these (sex offenders) to make sure they are compliant.”

Concetta Jackson – Pedophile Enabler – Bail Revoked

While teenage victims wept in relief, a judge revoked bail Monday for a baby sitter who admits she helped her sexual-predator ex-boyfriend molest and film her young charges.

Concetta Jackson, 46, faces 15 to 30 years in prison in what the judge once called a “sociopathic” case of child pornography.

Jackson and another woman helped procure children as young as 3 months old for John Jackey Worman, whose computers held more than 1 million images of child pornography when federal agents arrested him in 2006. Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing child pornography while Worman and Dorothy Prawdzik were convicted of multiple child pornography counts at trial.

Worman is awaiting sentencing in the federal pornography case and faces a state trial for the alleged assaults on at least 12 children. Prawdzik is serving a 30-year federal term.

Jackson’s sentencing was delayed Monday so she could be tested for possible brain disorders and other health problems.

Jackson, in exchange for rent money, let Worman install a video camera in her bathroom in Collingdale that let him videotape children as they undressed and left infant girls in his care knowing he would abuse them, prosecutors said.

Jackson had been on home confinement since her September plea, with permission to leave home to shop or see doctors. U.S. District Judge Lawrence F. Stengel revoked her bail amid complaints from victims who ran into her and concerns about Jackson’s housing situation, finances and mental health.
