 A Wisconsin judge was arrested Tuesday on tentative charges of possession of child pornography.

Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Brett Blomme, 38, was arrested following an investigation into 'multiple uploads of child pornography,' the Wisconsin Department of Justice said in a release.

The Kik application can be used to communicate in group chats or direct messages.

After linking the uploads to Blomme, investigators obtained search warrants for his judicial chambers, vehicle and residences in Milwaukee and Dane counties, the statement said.


Blomme is being held in the Dane County Jail. A message could not be left at a number listed for Blomme's chambers. A home phone number for him could not be found.

Prior to his arrest he presided over children's court at the Vel R. Phillips Youth and Family Justice Center, according to Fox6.

A 44-page search warrant filed Friday said investigators determined Blomme, using the name 'dommasterbb,' allegedly uploaded 27 videos and images containing child pornography, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Two of the files were uploaded at a Milwaukee County government building, the search warrant said. 

Blomme won election in April 2020 and took the bench in August 2020. His term is scheduled to end on July 31, 2026. 

Before serving on the bench, Blomme was the president and CEO of Cream City Foundation in Milwaukee, WISN reported.

The organization's website says it mobilizes philanthropic resources 'to advance the human rights and respond to the human needs of LGBTQ+ people in Southeastern Wisconsin.' 

According to his own website, Blomme lives in the Lenox Heights neighborhood on Milwaukee’s west side and he and his husband Chris have 2 children.
