RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - Racine Police say more families are coming forward to report that their children were watched by Alexander Richter – a babysitter who was charged Monday with 26 sex-related felonies.
Richter, who turns 29 next Tuesday, faces two counts of repeated sexual assault of the same child – plus numerous other counts of child sexploitation and possessing child pornography. He’s accused of filming and sexually abusing young children in his Racine apartment.
WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee said some of the victims were the children of students at Gateway Technical College – and students said rumors are spreading on campus while the school has said nothing.
Police said they’re not sure whether Gateway was the only link that Richter had to his victims, and that’s why they’re still asking the public to report any contact their kids have had with the defendant.
Richter’s in jail under a half-million-dollar bond. He’s due back in court a week from Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
