Sex offender release moved from Wisconsin Rapids to Colby

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A convicted sex offender who was going to be released to a Wisconsin Rapids community will now be released in Colby.

On Tuesday, the Clark County Sheriff's Department announced that Phillip Eggers, 29, will live at W361 Colby Factory Road in Colby. His release is scheduled for Friday. Earlier this month, Wisconsin Rapids police announced that Eggers would be released to an apartment on Boles Street in Wisconsin Rapids. The department later learned that his address would change, but it was not aware of the new address until Tuesday.

Eggers served a prison sentence for Second Degree Sexual Assault of a Child.
