MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Wisconsin Department of Justice official says a former Milwaukee field office supervisor let at least 43 child pornography cases languish for months.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen told reporters on March 19 that Milwaukee Special Agent-In-Charge Willie Brantley and Special Agent Anna King had lost their jobs that day because they were responsible for delays that allowed one suspected child pornography distributor time to allegedly molest an 11-year-old boy and weakened the case against another.
Deputy Attorney General Kevin St. John sent a letter to Brantley on March 19 firing Brantley. The letter accuses him holding 43 cases longer than 120 days between 2011 and 2013. Some cases were held for years and some were never assigned.
Brantley has appealed his termination, arguing there was no timeline for investigations.
