RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man could spend the rest of his life in prison after he molested six kids, and made videos of the assaults with titles like "Monster Unleashed."  

30-year-old Alexander Richter will be sentenced Thursday afternoon. Prosecutors are recommending 80 years behind bars, thus making it all but impossible for Richter to ever go free.  

He pleaded no contest to four charges related to child sexual assault. 45 other counts were dropped in a plea deal. Those counts were filed just over a year ago.  

Authorities said Richter volunteered to babysit children of his fellow classmates at Gateway Technical College. He then had sex on camera with boys and girls ages 5 to 12, who cried and begged him to stop.  

Police said they seized almost two dozen videos from Richter's apartment, along with almost 200 photos of child pornography.
