David Hager

A registered sex offender, having completed time served behind bars, was released Dec. 4, 2019, to live in the New Auburn area, and now a public meeting will be held by law enforcement officials to answer questions and inform the public about the process of the offender’s release and placement.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 13, at the New Auburn High School library at 704 East St., New Auburn.

David Hager, 47, is residing at 25978 CTH F, New Auburn, in the town of Sampson, Chippewa County, under the supervision of the Department of Corrections.

Conditions of Hager’s supervision prohibit him from any unsupervised contact with minors and no contact with his victims. Hager is restricted from being on the property of any schools, parks or day-care centers. He must remain a registered sex offender for life, follow rules and GPS monitoring.

Hager was convicted in 1995 of three counts of felony incest with a child. In 2008, he was deemed a “sexually violent person,” and was committed.

Chippewa County Sheriff James Kowalczyk, along with Michael Chase, of the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and Megan Popenhagen, of the State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections, will be holding an informational meeting on the process around the release and placement of Hager.
