A 31-year-old sex offender who was caught living in Grafton near a school after being pulled over for a traffic violation in April was sentenced in Ozaukee County Circuit Court Monday to three years in prison.

Reed D. Glover notified the Department of Transportation of his address on Cedar Street in Grafton but not the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registry, as he was required to by law, according the criminal complaint filed against him on April 22.

He was also living within 1,500 feet of St. Joseph Parish School in violation of sex offender rules.

On Monday, Glover, who at the time of his arrest was free on bail in felony cases in Brown and Marquette counties, pleaded guilty in Ozaukee County to felony bail jumping and failing to register with the sex offender registry.

In addition to prison, Judge Steve Cain sentenced Glover to three years of extended supervision following his incarceration.

Four other counts, including additional bail jumping and sex offender charges, as well as counts of driving a vehicle without a license and failing to install an ignition interlock, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement but read into the record, which means Cain could consider them when sentencing Glover.

Glover was required to register as a sex offender by virtue of his conviction for second-degree sexual assault of a child in 2011 in Columbia County. A prison sentence was withheld in that case and Glover was ordered to serve 10 months in the county jail, according to court records.

The Grafton case dates to Monday, April 18, when a police officer pulled Glover over near 17th and Washington streets for failing to yield the right of way.

In the vehicle with Glover was a 12-year-old child, whose mother, the owner of the vehicle, told officers she gave Glover permission to drive it.

A check of Glover’s record revealed that his driver’s license had been revoked because of an operating while intoxicated conviction and that he was ordered to have an ignition interlock device installed on any vehicle he drove. The vehicle he was driving did not have such a device.

A more thorough check of Glover’s record revealed that he was free on bail in connection with the cases in Brown and Marquette counties and that he was a sex offender.

A sex offender registry specialist told officers that sex offenders have 10 days to notify the registry they moved, which Glover failed to do. In addition, his Grafton home was within 1,500 feet of a school, which is prohibited.

Since his arrest in Grafton, Glover was convicted of felonies in the cases in other counties.

In Brown County, he pleaded guilty in August to substantial battery, criminal trespassing and criminal damage to property and was sentenced to 18 months in prison and two years of extended supervision.

In Marquette County, he pleaded guilty in October to fourth-offense operating while intoxicated, resisting an officer and driving after his license was revoked. A judge sentenced him to two years in prison and two years of extended supervision but stayed the sentenced, which means he will only have to serve it if he violates the conditions of probation. The judge did, however, order him to serve a year in the county jail.

Glover’s sentence in Ozaukee County is consecutive to those in Brown and Marquette counties.
