Appeals court: Man violated probation by visiting tavern where victim worked

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin appeals court said a man violated probation for a sexual assault case, just by visiting a tavern while his previous victim was working there.

Mark Peterson of Rockford Illinois was originally given 3 years of probation for a theft conviction in 2006.

A judge later revoked the probation and sent Peterson back to jail, after he walked into a tavern in 2010 – and a woman was working there who was sexually assaulted by Peterson in 1995.

Peterson said his visit to the bar had nothing to do with the woman.

But a circuit judge said a registered sex offender violates a probation when being in the same place as his victim – and the Second District Appellate Court in Waukesha agreed with that ruling Wednesday.
