MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Justice Department has released the names of two investigators who lost their jobs after they let child pornography cases languish for months.
Agency officials identified the investigators on Wednesday as Milwaukee Special Agent-In-Charge Willie Brantley and former Milwaukee Special Agent Anna King.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said in March their delays in following up a lead on a Racine man suspected of distributing child pornography allowed the man time to allegedly touch an 11-year-old inappropriately.
Van Hollen also said their delays in following up on a tip that a Pewaukee man was distributing child pornography led to a prosecutor reducing charges against him.
Van Hollen has said they were no longer employed as of March 19, but agency officials aren’t saying whether they were fired or resigned.
