Plea deal struck for Eau Claire man charged with burglary and arson

Eau Claire (WQOW) — A man already serving prison time for an armed robbery in Eau Claire struck a plea bargain with prosecutors on burglary and arson charges.

Davy Cole is accused of burglarizing three Verizon stores in Eau Claire, as well as a Sprint PCS store and a T-Mobile store in 2017. He is also charged with soliciting a minor to start two house fires to distract police during the burglaries.

As part of a plea deal reached Thursday, Cole will plead guilty to two burglary counts in exchange for seven other charges being dropped. The state is recommending a sentence of five years in prison. A sentencing date has been scheduled for August 22.

Cole also faces 17 charges of sex crimes against children. The counts include sexual assault, child sex trafficking and child pornography. That case is still ongoing.
