Suspended Milwaukee County Judge Brett Blomme is now facing federal charges in his child pornography case.

“A Dane County man is charged with 2 counts of distributing child pornography in an indictment returned today by a federal grand jury sitting in Madison,” according to Timothy M. O’Shea, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin.

O’Shea made the announcement in a statement on May 12, 2021.

Brett Blomme, 40, Cottage Grove, Wisconsin, is charged with 2 counts of distributing a visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. “The indictment alleges that on October 30 and November 1, 2020, Blomme sent a file containing an image of child pornography to another user via Kik Messenger,” states the federal news release.

“At the time of the offenses alleged in the indictment, Blomme was a judge with the Milwaukee County Children’s Court,” the release states. “If convicted, Blomme faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 5 years and a maximum of 20 years in federal prison on each count. The charges against him are the result of an investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Chadwick Elgersma is handling the prosecution.”

Blomme, who was active in Democratic Party circles in Milwaukee, was earlier charged with multiple counts of child pornography in state court. There is a pre-trial conference in that case in July.

Blomme, who was assigned to Children’s Court, was criminally charged in state court on March 17 with seven counts of child pornography in a graphic and disturbing complaint that alleges he downloaded videos of adult men having anal and oral sex with Asian and Caucasian toddlers and other male children, including a crying boy in a Mickey Mouse shirt.

Blomme used the name “dommasterbb” to access the child porn, the Brett Blomme criminal complaint alleges. Two of the IP addresses used to download and share the porn were registered to the Milwaukee County government building, the complaint says. You can read more about the state charges here.

A Dane County Court Commissioner, Brian Asmus, previously Blomme to have unsupervised contact with his two young children, over a prosecutor’s objection. The court commissioner, while calling the allegations “certainly disturbing,” also rejected a prosecutor’s request for $2,500 bail, opting instead for a $500 signature bond because he doesn’t believe that Blomme, who was assigned to Children’s Court before his arrest, is a flight risk.
