27 News open records request leads DOJ to release names of agents terminated in child porn scandal

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Justice has identified the two agents terminated for allowing child pornography cases to languish as former Special Agent In-Charge Willie Brantley and Special Agent Anna King, both assigned to the Department of Criminal Investigation's Milwaukee office.

The DOJ identified Brantley and King in response to an open records request made by 27 News.

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced two agents had been terminated on March 19th, after an internal review found they were letting child pornography cases languish so long the targets allegedly sexually assault children before any action was taken.
  
DOJ had launched an internal investigation into the matter late January. Van Hollen says the review found no other agents were allowing their cases to sit, except for Brantley and King.

Investigators are still reviewing Brantley and King's other cases to determine how many sat for too long without being addressed.
