Wisconsin officials won't hire ex-Florida official to evaluate sex predator releases

MAUSTON, WI (WTAQ) - State officials have decided not to hire a former Florida official to evaluate sexual predators for possible releases.

Daniel Montaldi was on the hot seat for about a week, after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said he quit a job in Florida because he was considered too sympathetic to sex offenders.

The state Health Services Department said Wednesday it rescinded a verbal job offer to Montaldi. He was going to become the new psychologist supervisor at the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center at Mauston.

An agency spokeswoman said the evaluation program would continue with its existing resources while the supervisor's post remains vacant. The next step has not been determined for recruiting a new person.

Governor Scott Walker told reporters Wednesday he was not pleased that Montaldi was hired -- but it wouldn't be easy to let him go, because he would have been a civil service employee. Officials said Montaldi did not receive any payments from Wisconsin.
