WilsonAn Alton man is facing charges after police found him living near an Alton daycare.  51 year old Timothy J. Wilson of the 800 block of Brown Street is a convicted sex offender and is charged with unlawful residing of a child sex offender since he lived with 500 feet of Maxine’s Daycare which is in the 700 block of Silver Street. 

Alton Police say they discovered Wilson living with a woman at the residence during a compliance check in late May.  Wilson was reportedly informed he needed to move because he lived near a daycare and that violated his sex offender status.  Police say they made several follow-up attempts to contact Wilson about the situation but were never able to speak to him so a warrant was issued for his arrest.  Wilson was convicted in Macoupin County in 1994 for committing a sexual assault against an 11 year old when he was 30.  Bond has been set at $40,000.
