WI- Sex offender found dead at home

1-25-2007 Wisconsin:

NEWARK TOWNSHIP-A convicted sex offender scheduled to be sentenced Friday apparently killed himself in his home Wednesday night.

Indications are that Donald L. Ostenson, 63, of 8102 W. Grove School Road, Beloit, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said Lt. Bill Harper of the Rock County Sheriff's Department.

An Orfordville ambulance was called to the scene at 7:53 p.m., Harper said. A representative of the coroner's office pronounced Ostenson dead at the scene.

Ostenson was charged in August 2005 with sexual assault of a child younger than 13.

A charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child later was dismissed, but Ostenson pleaded guilty Oct. 26 to a related felony, according to online court records.

Ostenson was scheduled to be sentenced Friday morning in Rock County Court. ..more.. by GazzetteXtra
