Racine mayor arrested on child sex crimes charges
Racine Mayor Gary Becker is free on bond while he awaits a court appearance set for this afternoon (Thursday) on possible sex charges.
Becker was arrested Tuesday at the Brookfield Square mall, just west of Milwaukee. His sister-in-law posted a $165,000 cash bond late Wednesday afternoon.
No charges have been filed yet.
State Justice spokesman Bill Cosh says the exact allegations won't come out until the charges are filed.
