EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A convicted sex offender is expected to be released in Eau Claire Tuesday.

The Eau Claire Police Department announced in a news release Tuesday morning that the Wisconsin Department of Corrections plans to release William Baugh, 53, to a home on the 100 block of Randall Street in Eau Claire. The department said it's a temporary arrangement. It plans to "work continuously" to find a permanent home for Baugh.

Court records show that Baugh was convicted of Third Degree Sexual Assault in Washburn County in June 2010. He was sentenced to prison a month later. Baugh was also convicted of Burglary in Eau Claire County in 2000. He is not allowed to have contact with children, leave the home without a department-contracted chaperone or drink or go into a tavern.
