— A Beloit man was committed to an institution Wednesday under the state’s sexually violent person law.

James Dye, 38, was convicted in 2005 of felony first-degree sexual assault of a child and sent to prison, according to the Wisconsin Attorney General’s Office.


Rock County Court Judge Kenneth Forbeck ordered Dye’s commitment to the state Department of Health Services for sex-offender treatment.


The state’s petition alleged Dye suffers from mental conditions that predispose him to sexual violence.


The petition also alleges that Dye’s mental disorders make it likely he will reoffend.


Dye will remain in the custody of health services until he is no longer considered sexually violent.
