Stacy Keith Wisener was removed from Georgia’s sex offender registry in 2017 by a Paulding County Superior Court judge. A few months later, Wisener began sexually molesting an 11-year-old girl. The abuse continued for approximately four years, the Justice Department reported.
The now 60-year-old former U.S. Postal Service employee was sentenced to three decades in prison for abusing the young girl, producing child pornography, and stealing mail.
“Wisener’s decision to continue to exploit children, even after working to get off the sex offender registry, now puts him in prison for decades,” said Keri Farley, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta.
Wisener was placed on Georgia’s sex offender registry in 2003 after he pleaded guilty to molesting a child under the age of 16. For that crime, Wisener dodged jail time and was instead sentenced to probation.
Wisener remained on the registry for 14 years. He petitioned the court in 2017, asking to be removed from the list, and his request was granted. A few months later, Wisener began abusing his next underage victim.
To be removed from a sex offender registry, Georgia law requires that the Sex Offender Registration and Review Board consider the individual low-risk. During the hearing for removal, the judge must also agree that the offender is not likely to commit another sex crime.
In October 2021, the latest victim came forward and accused Wisener of molesting her since she was 11 years old. She told her parents and law enforcement that he would often take photographs and record videos of the abuse.
Authorities searched Wisener’s home and seized multiple data storage devices that were found to contain child pornography, including photographs and videos of Wisener abusing the victim.
During the search, law enforcement also discovered thousands of pieces of unopened mail and packages not belonging to Wisener. The Georgia man had stolen the mail from his place of employment at the Postal Service processing and distribution facility.
The 60-year-old pleaded guilty to federal child exploitation and stolen mail possession charges. Wisener was sentenced to 30 years in prison, ordered to pay $175,000 in restitution, $5,200 for special assessment, required to re-register as a sex offender, and required to forfeit his home residence.
