A Circuit Court judge in Milwaukee County is accused of possession of child pornography and even uploaded explicit images from a government building, according to an arrest report.
Police say that Brett Blomme, 38, uploaded child pornography multiple times through a Kik messaging app. He was arrested this week in connection to the case.
A warrant in the case alleges that he uploaded 27 videos and images containing child pornography under the name “dommasterbb,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Two of the pieces of child pornography were uploaded in the Milwaukee County government building, according to a search warrant obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The incidents in question happened in October and November 2020.
Based on records linking the uploads to Blomme, the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation has obtained search warrants for his chambers, his vehicle and his homes in Milwaukee and Dane counties.
Criminal charges against Blomme are expected to be filed today.
Blomme was elected as a Circuit Court Judge in August 2020, according to his campaign website.
"Brett is a community activist, experienced attorney, and devoted dad. He has spent his career fighting for the most marginalized in our community," the site read. He and his husband have two children.
Before becoming a judge, Blomme was President and CEO of Cream City Foundation, which offers grants and scholarships to support LGBTQ people. He also worked as Director of Major Gifts for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin.
Bloome also worked as an attorney for the state's Public Defender Officer, where he represented low-income suspects.
He also serves as the current chairman of Milwaukee's Board of Zoning Appeals.
