Oshkosh -

A former Catholic priest from Chicago, convicted of sexually assaulting two teenage boys in Oshkosh back in the 1990's, will be released into the Winnebago County area by the end of the summer.

Norbert Maday served more than a dozen years in prison and several more in a secure facility for sexually violent offenders. Tuesday, a judge approved a release plan for Maday.

Norbert Maday appeared for the hearing via video conference from the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center in Mauston, Wisconsin, near The Dells, where he's been housed since being released from prison and classified as a sexually violent person.

Both his attorney, who was in the courtroom, and the special prosecutor, who appeared for the hearing on the phone, agreed to a conditional release supervision plan for the former priest.

"The residence I believe remains appropriate," said Kevin Greene, special prosecutor on the case. "I believe the rules and plan for supervision are appropriate as well and therefore I'm asking you to adopt the entire plan."

It's a plan Maday told the court he would be able to follow.

"Do you feel you understand what is expected of you and what the rules will be?" Judge Daniel Bissett asked.

Maday replied, "I think I have a pretty good idea, yes."

Under the confidential release plan, Maday will be transferred from the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center to a different facility in Winnebago County on or before August 2nd.
