A judge has sentenced a Beloit man to 25 years in federal prison for producing child pornography.

David Wenzel, 58, learned his fate in federal court Thursday.  His prison term is followed by 20 years of supervised release.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office raided Wenzel’s home last March.  Investigators found DVDs and VHS tapes containing child pornography.  Eight of those videos showed Wenzel sexually assaulting a five year-old girl who appeared to be drugged.  He pled guilty to the charges in October.

The judge also ordered that Wenzel’s home be forfeited to the government, because that’s where he committed and filmed the assaults.  The property is valued at approximately $262,000.
