Suburban Crime Roundup: Racine Man Facing 26 Felony Counts for Sex Crimes

Patch compiles the most significant suburban crime news from the past week.

Here are some of Patch's top crime- and police-related stories from throughout the Milwaukee area in the last week. Click on a link to see the all the details.

Facing more than 1,000 years in prison: A 28-year-old Racine man was charged with 26 felony counts for sex crimes against children after law enforcement obtained a DVD that showed him engaging in sexual acts with four children.

Nine-year sentence for causing fatal crash: A Port Washington man who killed his passenger while driving drunk was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Wrong way on freeway: Driving up to 100 mph the wrong direction on I-43 led to charges of reckless endangerment of safety for a Brookfield man.

Inappropriate conduct: A Greenfield police officer resigned after sending sexually explicit text messages to a suspect in a jewelry theft.

Doctor sentenced: A Whitefish Bay gynecologist was sentenced to a year in prison and three years probation after being found guilty of inappropriately touching and talking with patients.

And some “good news” from the police reports:

Local heroes save neighbor: Caledonia residents rushed to the aid of a 60-year-old man who became trapped under water beneath his lawn mower when it tipped on a hill. The man was extracted by neighbors with the help of a police officer and fire rescue personnel, then revived via CPR.


The above items are from reports from local police departments and criminal complaints. In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. The arrested person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Regarding: "Facing more than 1,000 years in prison" The Ultimate Penalty will do just fine here . . . . quit promoting these disgusting behaviors. If you give them Free Room & Board, they have beat the system!
