Former Racine Mayor Released From Prison Submitted: 02/28/2013
Racine - The former mayor of Racine is out of prison, and back in the community after serving time for sexual assault of a child and child enticement. Gary Becker is now living about two blocks from an elementary school. Officials with the State Department of Corrections confirmed his release and new address. Becker was mayor from April 2003 until January 2009. Now he's a registered sex offender. Neighbors aren't too happy to have Becker on their block. Alex Marquez, a father of two, says the state should have let them know Becker was moving in. The former mayor is on extended supervision for five years. He's not allowed to have contact with minors.
