Former Racine mayor faces 25 years in prison
RACINE - Former Racine Mayor Gary Becker faces up to 25 years in prison, after he pleaded guilty yesterday to two charges connected with an Internet sex sting.
Six other counts were dropped in a plea bargain. Racine County District Attorney Michael Nieskes says he'll recommend jail-or-prison time, but he wouldn't say how much. He said the plea deal was appropriate, and it protects the community's interests.
