tuesday morning... july 5th -- a white van leaves fox lake correctional. in the back -- matthew schechter. crimes. in 1989... sex with two teenage girls. in the early 1990s... sexual assaults using force on adult women.now... more than two decades later... he is leaving prison -- his sentence served. his next 48 hours of freedom -- about to unfold before your eyes. no one wants a sex offender like matt schechter living next door -- public opinion is clear; politicians have codified it. and it's certainly
9:14 pm
offenders can live.... have become increasingly stringent. however -- as a result-- the number of sex offenders who are homeless... has skyrocketed. firsthand-- you are about to see why. four hours after leaving fox lake -- i was incarcerated for 22 years.matt schechter walks out of the state building on 6th street. from until today.into freedom. whee doesn't know. they didnt have any answers for me. the prison van left him here-- to be processed by parole... no housing options. and fitted with an ankle monitor. just were gonna put you on this gps bracelet, and good luck. he is now officially.... that's all they told me.homeless. === the maze matt schechter will try to navigate over the next 48
9:15 pm
sex offender residency requirements in wisconsin.by state law.... sex offenders have to return to the county in which they lived when they committed their crime. for matt... that's milwaukee. but there are 19 municipalities in milwaukee county... each with different restrictions on where he can live -- various buffer zones around areas children might be -- schools, parks, daycares and so on. no one has given him any information on what those rules are. and he knows one wrong move... can put him back in prison. === his first stop -- a bank. his father in germany has sent him a some money to get anxious and nervous... next stop -- i probably only have enough to get by for a few days. walmart, for supplies and a cell phone. he has to call his parole agent to advise her where he's staying.if... alright, power on the phone.he can figure out how a cell phone works... zip code. what's the zip code?and --- where he'll be sleeping. sex offenders don't get a map of areas they can live when they get out prison-- they don't get a list of approved
9:16 pm
zones on their own. this right here is the addresses for all the milwaukee area police departments that i can contact and figure out what the rules are.matt has heard there are some motels on south 27th street where he might be able to stay tonight. but he's not allowed to access the internet to get their numbers -- the internet is off limits. phone dial nats so he's calling oak creek police. im a registered sex offender and was just released from prison today.they give him the green light -- that . thanks very much.but the buses don't go that far south -- and time i probably got a good 30-40 minutes....is running out. its only good for 12 hours. the battery on his gps is low. if i dont charge it and it goes off, there will be a warrant issued for my arrest. so he starts walking - hoping to make it to a motel in time. a homeless sex offender... deemed by the state to be so dangerous he'll remain on the registry for life... strolling the street at night.... looking
9:17 pm
become. republican state representative joel kleefisch is pushing for a statewide standard -- a uniform buffer zone everywhere.but he's getting pushback. no municipality wants to be told that their specific rules shouldn't be in place. if you're a municipal leader you want to tell your citizens 'we don't have any place in this municipality for sex offenders to live.' meanwhile matthas finally found a room... . and plugs himself in. in 1994 i had a bh you went through some therapy?? yeah, i did 5 years of therapy. sex offender treatment and counseling. and i also got some drug and alcohol treatment. ultimately, i want the same thing everybody else wants - i want to get a job, and go to school, and make a life for myself. === the next day... every place you try to stay is illegal.matt is on the move
9:18 pm
because of my status. oak creek.... i tried calling... he discovered today... other municaplities. i called franklin is off limits. police department, greenfield police department, and no one tells sex offenders that when they're released. it's another avenue in the maze they have to figure out. im going to go to a church on 9th andso tonight state street and see if tofor matt be able to give me a blanket or something to sleep with tonight. he's stuck trying to find a spot in the city of milwaukee - where he lived in 1994 when he was arrested. all the lights are off and the doors are locked so i dont think anybodys there. then -- what are you going to do in the meantime? at the police
9:19 pm
work out for you? ms i dont know yet. a stroke of luck. an officer, sympathetic to his situation... says he can stay in the park next door. back there are some benches underneath those trees. so ill just use my duffel bag as a pillow and put on my jeans - try to keep some of the bugs off. 48 hours after he was set free... as the sun next morning... matt is in violation of milwaukee's sex offender ordinance - the park... smack in the middle of a child safety zone.but with nowhere for him to go and with the blessings of police, his parole agent approves it. well i'm disappointed in that.alderman bob donovan sponsored the most recent restriction on sex offenders in the city. in april, milwaukee re-defined the word
9:20 pm
a person sleeps at night.now... it's illegal for a registered sex offender like matt to even fall asleep within the city's safety zones. fifteen other municipalities in milwaukee county have the same measure, taking away the exemption for a temporary place to sleep. the purpose of the legislation was to close that loophole. bh where are they supposed to go? bd well, not in milwaukee. but one week later -- got my pillow...that's still where matt schechter is just a small little tent. its like 3 feet tall. in the same park, next to the police station. i know it feels good to people to say, oh yeah, we did something but look at what youre doing. its not designed to keep children and other people safe. it may look that way, but its really designed to make it impossible for sex offenders to find anywhere to live so theyre forced to go somewhere else. the problem is, the ways the state laws are written, we cant go anywhere else. so
9:21 pm
2-thousand foot buffer zone... leaving just pockets of possibilities. most aren't even residential. this car dealership, for example. the parking lot of a pet supply company. the 10th hole at tripoli country club. the taxiway at timmerman. the coal piles on carferry. this section of st. adalberts cemetery. a redimix yard. a freeway off ramp. and most of mitchell international. in the entire city, there are just 55 offenders. fox6 checked them against the sex offender registry... and found there is not a single sex offender living in any of them. most are single family homes -- not for sale and not for rent. the few multi-units... don't allow felons. it's catastrophic. wendel hruska runs project return - a program that tries to help former inmates transition.he's seen how being homeless drives sex offenders underground
9:22 pm
those individuals can't really function. its definitely a risk factor for re- offense. they're stuck. stuck.... im the guy whos trying to follow the rules to the letter, like matt schechter. and to do everything i can to be in compliance. theres a hundred other guys out there who dont give a crap. one month after his release from prison... nats of wind blowing as he tries to up tent he's found a full time job - but he can't find a place to live. it's his second shift... he returns to the park. and puts up his tent. matt's mood is much darker im considering just saying f--k the whole thing and turning myself back in. than it was a month ago. you can't live like this. even in prison you have federal civil rights to a bed and a bathroom. zipper nats if this is winning, i dont want
9:23 pm
because of these layers of restrictions... there are now more than 230 homeless sex offenders in milwaukee county, alone. matt schechter... is no longer among them. a few weeks after that last interview on august 5th... he finally found an apartment in west milwaukee. west milwaukee, greendale and south milwaukee... are the three municipalities that don't have that original domicile restriction. who do live in milwaukee county? how are they allowed to live where he can't? over the past few years, there's been a flurry of these sex offender ordinances -- each municipality almost competing to out-do the other. but all the offenders who lived here before that.... are grandfathered in. also -- sex offenders can stay with their families... but in matt's case, he doesn't have any family in milwaukee county. and often, their families just won't have them because of what
9:24 pm
have them because of what they've done. well, he's been ordered to live with his mother after spending decades behind bars.. john hinckley junior - the man who shot president ronald reagan is now free - how neighbors are reacting. plus a milwaukee police van stopped at a red light the suspect just opens the backdoor and bolts! fox 6 has

"it just fits my personality. it fits me. and it just feels so right." it could be said that jordan ponder's life plan was already in motion before he even realized it.

"my family would always have bodybuilding magazines around and stuff like that. and i was just like, enthralled by all of this image of effort,

until i was 8 that my dad allowed me to start working out, to start doing pushups, start doing these things." working constantly to perfect his progression, he eventually reached the stage that seemed predetermined to be his place to shine. "that's probably one of the things that keeps me drawn to bodybuilding as well, being able to present myself and being able to present just art, just expression and just make something that's beautiful. and that's the greatest compliment that i've ever gotten for the competitions i've d posing that i've done. as they say, what you're presenting is beautiful and it's not me, it's the music. it's the routine." following a routine isn't limited to bodybuilding. it encompasses his entire being, from being a husband and a father to his life as a captain in the milwaukee fire department.
