Wisconsin’s DOJ Delayed Child Pornography Investigations for Months, Records Show

The Wisconsin Department of Justice delayed investigations of child pornography tips for months, the Post Crescent reports.

Criticism of the DOJ’s Internet child pornography unit mounted in March, when Milwaukee Special Agent-in-Charge Willie Brantley was fired and Special Agent Anna King resigned. It was discovered that nearly four dozen cases languished for months.

DOJ officials said they are overwhelmed and were forced to prioritize cases.

“A deep dive on any of these cases will reflect that they … were handled appropriately or resulted in discipline,” said DOJ Division of Criminal Investigation Administrator Dave Matthews.

Officials at the office denied any systemic problems existed.

FBI agents arresting a Florida teacher at his home Monday made a disturbing discovery – thousands of images of child porn on his computer, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.

Matthew Graziotti, 42, a fifth grade teacher at a South Daytona private school and director of the school’s summer day camp, was charged with producing and distributing child porn.

Seized in the raid were 141 images and six videos depicting sexually abused and exploited children.

One folder on his computer was named “personally known” and included 31 subfolders with different boys’ names, according to the FBI. One image showed him sexually abusing a “prepubescent” boy.

“The FBI director told me that they, at this point, could not clarify where these boys are from, or who they are, or anything,” Mark Tress, superintendent at Warner Christian Academy, said. “We’re cooperating with them and providing them the assistance they need to determine whether or not any of our children were a part of that.”

A U.S. Border Patrol agent is accused of exchanging nude photos with a 15-year-old girl via email, the El Paso Times reports.

Agent Abel Michael Quiroz, 26, was arrested Tuesday on child pornography charges after a search warrant was executed at his La Cruce home.

The search allegedly turned up sexually explicit conversations, along with shared nude photos of each other.

“There is no evidence suggesting that Quiroz’s alleged criminal activities were conducted with government-owned equipment or technology,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
