CALEDONIA — A plea deal is in the works for a Caledonia man facing charges after authorities reportedly found child pornography on his personal computer.
In December 2018, 33-year-old David A. Kluth, of the 4800 block of North Green Bay Road, was charged with 18 counts of possession of child pornography after Racine County Sheriff’s Office deputies executed a search warrant at his home.
During the search, deputies found a video containing child pornography in a computer in Kluth’s bedroom, according to the criminal complaint. Peer-to-peer file sharing software often used to access child pornography was also found.
Kluth reportedly admitted that it was his computer, but said that someone else may have used his computer to download the video.
On Wednesday, the state said that if Kluth pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography, they would recommend a sentence of three years in prison, three years extended supervision for the felony, online court records show.

That is the mandatory minimum sentence for child pornography possession in Wisconsin.
As part of the agreement, the other 17 charges would be dismissed but considered for sentencing purposes.
Child pornography carries a maximum sentence of 25 years, with 15 years in prison and 10 years extended supervision, according to Wisconsin law.
Racine County Circuit Court Judge Wynne Laufenberg, who is overseeing the case, is not obligated to follow the recommendation of the state.
A plea hearing is scheduled for Dec. 10 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
