The Winona County Sheriff's Department says a level three sex offender has been released from prison and taken up residence in Winona.
In a required public notice, Sheriff Dave Brand said 35-year-old Terry Carlton Ross is living in the 300 block of East Tenth Street.
Ross has a history, according to the Minnesota Department of Corrections, of sexual contact with young females ages 13 and 14. He also has a history of assaultive behavior and was known to his victims. A level three offender is someone who is deemed most likely to re-offend, under Minnesota statutes.
Local authorities are required to issue a public notice under Minnesota law when a level three sexual offender is released from prison.
