Sartell man Dennis Michael Lemke, was sentenced Thursday by District Court Judge for 30 years and a life of supervised release. Lembke, 43, pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography as in April of 2006 he knowingly engaged a child under the age of 12 in sexually explicit acts to create pornographic images.
Lembke was originally suspected when a six-year-old girl who attended the day care that Lemke’s wife ran told her mother that she had been molested in October of 2006. In February 2007 investigators took a computer, electronic storage media and digital camera from his St. Cloud home on which investigators found a large number of explicit images of children. Lembke was jailed in July of 2008.
