The Wisconsin Supreme Court has temporarily barred Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Brett Blomme from serving as a judge.

Blomme, who served on the county’s children’s court, was charged on Wednesday with seven felony counts of possession of child pornography.

The state Supreme Court said Blomme is unable to properly discharge his official duties and public interest requires him to be temporarily relieved of his responsibility. It issued an order temporarily prohibiting him from exercising the powers of circuit-court judge and temporarily withholding his judicial salary starting Wednesday. The order will remain in effect until further notice.

A Dane County court commissioner set a signature bond for Blomme on Wednesday, and he’s no longer in the Dane County jail, according to online records. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for April 29.
