Wisconsin Sex Offenders Nabbed During Trick Or Treating

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Eleven sex offenders are arrested in Milwaukee County for violating probation and parole during trick-or-treat hours.

Sheriff's deputies visited nearly 100 homes yesterday to make sure the most dangerous sex offenders weren't offering candy to children.

At one offender's southside Milwaukee apartment, deputies say they found a candy dish and children's toys. Both are prohibited items because of the offender's 2004 conviction for second-degree sexual assault of a child.

The man argued with authorities and deputies say they had to use their Taser to arrest him.

Sex offenders are reminded of the rules before Halloween. In some cases, they have to sign contracts with authorities.
