FARGO – Two moderate-risk Fargo sex offenders, who skipped out on their registration and are expecting a baby together, were booked into jail early this morning, jail records show.
Denise Kelly Gerszewski, 31, and Wesley Owen Gee, 30, are both being held at the Cass County Jail on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.
Gerszewski was booked about 3:20 a.m., and Gee was booked about 4 a.m. The circumstances of their arrests were not immediately known.
Gerszewski and Gee were listed as having lived at Centre Inc., 220 6th Ave. N., a transitional living facility. That was until May 12, when Fargo Detective Mark Voigtschild contacted Centre and spoke with an employee there about the pair, according to court documents filed this week in Cass County District Court.
The employee told the detective Gee was transferred to Centre Inc.’s other location at 123 15th St. N. on April 3.
She said Gerszewski left Centre on May 7 and hadn’t been seen since. Gee left the 15th Street facility the day before, she told the detective.
Probation officer Sherrie Prochnow told the detective that Gerszewski was briefly booked into the Cass County Jail three days after her disappearance from the halfway house. Because she faced misdemeanor charges, Gerszewski was released 12 hours later, Prochnow said, and since then there has been no sign of her.
According to court documents, Prochnow told the detective that Gerszewski is pregnant with Gee’s child, though authorities have not confirmed that she is pregnant.
Both have convictions of committing sex crimes against 16-year-olds they knew. They were male victims in both of Gerszewski’s cases, in 2010 and in 2011, and a female in Gee’s, in 2006.
Gee is required to register until 2032. Gerszewski is a lifetime registrant.
