EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- The Saint Croix County Sheriff's Department is warning neighbors about a sex offender being released from prison.

Deputies say 68-year-old Lawrence Mattison will be released February 4th.

In 2006 and 2010, online court records show Mattison was convicted of possession of child pornography.

They say he will be temporarily housed in the Saint Croix County Jail until the Wisconsin Department of Corrections can find appropriate housing for him.
