— A former Beloit man deemed sexually violent by a Rock County jury was committed Wednesday to the state health department for treatment.

Milton Taylor, 50, has six convictions for sex-related offenses against four children ranging in age from 13 to 17, according to a news release from Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen. Taylor will be transported to the Sand Ridge Secure Treatment Center in Mauston.

Judge Daniel Dillon presided over the three-day trial that ended Wednesday.

Wisconsin's sexually violent person law qualifies someone for civil commitment when the person is convicted of a sexually violent offense, has a mental disorder and is likely to re-offend. The person is committed to the state Department of Health Services for treatment until he is no longer considered sexually violent.

Taylor in 2005 was convicted in Rock County of second-degree sexual assault of a boy younger than 12 years of age.
