From The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Brett Blomme was arrested Tuesday on tentative charges of possession of child pornography, the state Department of Justice announced.
Blomme, 38, was taken into custody by special agents with the state Division of Criminal Investigation “following an investigation into multiple uploads of child pornography through a Kik messaging application account in October and November 2020,” according to a statement.
Criminal charges are expected to be filed against Blomme on Wednesday. He was arrested in Dane County.
A 44-page search warrant filed Friday by a DCI special agent said investigators found Blomme, using the name “dommasterbb,” uploaded 27 videos and images containing child pornography. Two of the files were uploaded at a Milwaukee County government building, the search warrant said.
Mayor Tom Barrett told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he was completely surprised by the chares brought against Brett Blomme. Blomme presented himself as the progressive alternative in his campaign.
