A twice-convicted sex offender who has been released three previous times on supervision will once again reside in Wausau, according to a release from the Wausau Police Department.

Paul Podgorak, 54, will be released June 30 and placed on supervision administered by the Wisconsin Dept. of Corrections.

Podgorak was convicted in 1990 of first degree sexual assault. Then in 2002, he was convicted on charges of second degree sexual assault of a child, this time with a habitual criminality enhancer.

In 2010, Podgorak was released from prison but was returned in 2014 when his probation was revoked. The second time Podgorak was released was in May 2016; he was then returned to prison just 15 months later.

Then in June 2018 Podgorak was released a third time, court records show. But by March 2019 his extended supervision was revoked after Podgorak was found guilty of resisting or obstructing an officer, a charge filed just five months after his release.

Podgorak will be placed in the intensive supervision program, monitored by Wausau-based corrections officers. He will be living in transitional housing near the Marathon County Courthouse, will be monitored by GPS and on a highly restricted schedule that will include time out in the community for work and treatment.

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