Hanover sex offender heads to Beloit home
HANOVER--The end is near for sex offenders living in the small, rural community of Hanover.
A man committed under the state’s sexually violent offender law will move to a home in Beloit later this month, and the town of Plymouth might pass an ordinance to prevent future placements in Hanover.
Clayton J. Smith, 52, will move from 8121 W. Mill St., Hanover, to a home at 2219 Euclid Ave., Beloit.
“We are delighted,” Plymouth Chairman Larry Harding said.
Smith’s placement with another man committed under the sexually violent offender law caused an uproar among Hanover residents and officials last spring. The other offender died in November.
