WAUSAU — A 36-year-old man convicted of sexually assaulting a child will be released in Wausau this month, officials announced Monday.

Paul A. Maki has reached his mandatory release date and will be living in Wausau after Sept. 18. Maki was convicted in 2009 in Marathon County Circuit Court on two counts of second degree sexual assault of a child, according to court records.

Current state law requires sex offenders to be released into the county in which they were convicted.

Maki will be monitored by sex offender agent specialists out of the Division of Community Corrections Office based in the Marathon County Courthouse and will be placed in the intensive supervision program with time out in the community for work and treatment. He will be living in transitional housing near the Marathon County Courthouse and will be subject to the Department of Corrections Global Positioning System (GPS).

Maki will be on extended supervision for 10 years following his release and is required to remain on the sex offender registry for life.

His ongoing address and status will be updated and available online by accessing the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry at
