Kruchten was arrested in connection to an indictment on federal charges off attempting to produce a child pornography. A statement from Interim Superintendent reads as follows:

The Madison Metropolitan School District learned today that the District of Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul announced an indictment charging East High Teacher and DECA Advisor David M. Kruchten, and that Mr. Krutchen been arrested for attempting to produce child pornography.

This news is incredibly disturbing to the MMSD family and our community.  We want to assure you that MMSD will do everything we can do to support our students and community through this unimaginably challenging time.

Together, as a community, East High School and the MMSD community will get through this by pulling together in support of one another, and do what is best for our students.   

However, the statement from does not the status of Kruchten's position with the school.
