A 45-year-old Waukesha woman has been released from prison into Waukesha and will live at 1104 E. Main St.
Lisa J. Farkas targets adult females, according to a news release from the Waukesha Police Department. She has a history of working with a male accomplice to lure an adult female to an apartment. They would tie up the female victim and sexually assault her together in the late 1980s. On another occasion, Farkas burned one female victim with a lighter during sexual activity.
Farkas is described as being 5-feet 7-inches tall, 176 pounds with brown, thinning hair and green eyes. She has an 8-inch scare on her lower left abdomen and two tattoos – a J.M. broken heart on her right arm and a broken heart on her left arm.
The accomplice in the case, Jack Moore, was also found guilty in the assaults. He remains in prison, according to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections' sex offender registry. Moore was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the rapes, according to the Milwaukee Sentinel.
Farkas previously was released in the community in 2000 and was the first woman to prompt a community-wide notification, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Her probation was revoked in 2010, court records show.
She will be a life registrant with the sex offender registry and will be submitting to face-to-face registration with law enforcement. She is to have no unsupervised contact with minors, no taverns/bars/liquor stores, no contact with victim and not to purchase/possess or consume alcohol or illegal drugs. She is to comply with sex offender rules and will be on G.P.S. monitoring while under supervision.

More from the police department:
The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of a sex offense. Further, her criminal history places her in a classification level, which reflects the potential to reoffend.
This sex offender has served the prison sentence imposed on her by the courts. The offender, under the supervision of the Department of Corrections, Division of Community Corrections, will be living in the location listed below. She is not wanted by the police at this time. This notification is not intended to increase fear, rather, it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public.
Sex offenders have always lived in our communities; but it wasn't until Act 440 (June 1997) that law enforcement is now able to share this information with the community. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated. Please understand that such abuse could potentially end law enforcement's ability to do community notifications. We believe the only person who wins if community notification ends is the sex offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.
