Waukesha (The Weekly Vice) -- Police obtained and executed a search warrant on the home of registered sex offender Scott E. Ziegler. What they found is both disturbing and incredible.
Scott E. Ziegler, a registered sex offender residing in Waukesha has been under the watchful eye of the police for some time. Based on probable cause, police executed a warrant to search Ziegler's home. They found a 14 year old girl under the covers in a locked room wearing a dog collar according to court documents filed Wednesday at the Waukesha County Courthouse.
This is the second such go-around that police have uncovered involving Ziegler and the 14 year old girl. On January 18th, police found Ziegler and the same girl (with dog collar attached) in a car after she had been reported missing. The new search warrant was approved by a Court Commissioner when the 14 year old minor was again reported as a runaway.
Despite Ziegler's status as a registered sex offender, he worked at a retail store called "Twisted" that is known to be popular among young people, according to police. Authorities began to monitor Ziegler's actions at that time, although the store closed down several months ago.
Ziegler has also been accused of harboring runaway girls in exchange for drugs and alcohol. It's also believed that Ziegler uses these instances to engage in sexual activities with the under-aged girls.
Ziegler is being held in the Waukesha County Jail on $100,000 bond. Charges are expected to be filed shortly.
The Weekly Vice Reaction:
Alright, this story wins the January, 2008 wacky sex perv award, hands (pants) down. I'm not sure how a sex offender goes to work at a trendy teen hangout without quicker action from authorities, but perhaps timing is everything in this business. The town must seriously consider passing some additional leash law legislation soon.
It is also hard to avoid the question of how a dog collar continuously becomes a common theme with Ziegler's fetishes. For Pete's sake, think of the animals in Ziegler's home too. Victims come in all shapes and ....um...species in the Ziegler freak show.
