Authorities: Rhinelander Man Filmed Child Sexual Assaults

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAW) -- A 60-year-old Rhinelander man has been arrested after allegations he sexually assaulted a child over the course of year and filmed the incidents.

Roger Krutke is charged with three counts of possession of child pornography and remains in custody on $50,000 cash bond.

According to court documents, investigators executed a search warrant at Krutke's Rhinelander home on Dec. 20. A laptop and dash camera video were seized. Along with a hard drive from a property Krutke owned in Park Falls.

The alleged victim said the incidents occurred while on trips and at Krutke's house.

Video analyzed by the Department of Criminal Investigations provided a time stamp of the file's creation dates. DCI recommended Krutke be charged with first degree sexual assault of child. A spokesperson for the Oneida County District Attorney could not share if more charges would be filed.

According to the criminal complaint, the dash camera video reportedly seized from Krutke's vehicle depicts sexual assaults taking place in his vehicle.
