Tomah man sentenced to 60 years for crimes against children

 

Editor’s note: The original story, posted Monday, Oct. 14, stated that Hamilton was of Kendall. More accurately, Hamilton resided in Tomah but provided a Kendall address to the Monroe County Clerk of Court, and there is no independent verification that he ever lived at the address in Kendall.  

David J. Hamilton, 41, of Tomah was sentenced Friday to 60 years in prison after his conviction on 57 counts related to sex crimes against children, Monroe County District Attorney Kevin D. Croninger announced today.

The sentence was structured as 35 years of initial confinement and 25 years of extended supervision. The sentence was handed down by Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark L. Goodman.

District Attorney Croninger stated, “David Hamilton is a predator. Predators belong in prison. The sentence of the court today assures Mr. Hamilton will remain in prison and incapable of hurting any children for an extended period of time. I am extremely proud of the work that both law enforcement and the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office continue to do to ensure that predators like David Hamilton are removed from the public.”

Hamilton was convicted of the 57 counts on June 17, 2019. The counts included 45 counts of possession of child pornography, six counts of registered sex offender photographing minor without consent, five counts of exposing genitals, and one count of child exploitation.

Paul Sloan of the Tomah Police Department led the investigation of the child sex crimes, with assistance from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.

Monroe County District Attorney Kevin D. Croninger prosecuted the case.
