Charges filed in Kenosha County locker room camera case

Prosecutors in Kenosha County have filed almost a dozen charges of capturing images of nudity against an Illinois man, after cameras were found in the locker room of a Pleasant Prairie recreation facility.

36-year-old Karl Landt of Waukegan, IL remains in jail, while charges are still pending against 27-year-old Melissa Weckenbach of Pleasant Prairie. Court records say Weckenbach admitted to planting cameras in the RecPlex locker room dozens of times at Landt’s direction.

A review of the recovered videos indicates some do show images of children. Pleasant Prairie Police say there’s a lot more work to be done, like determining how the videos were used and if they were distributed.
