- Most people would expect quick action if they provided a tip about possible child pornography.
Newly released records show state Justice Department field offices across Wisconsin have delayed investigating some child pornography tips for months.
For example, the agency's Madison office took about three years to assign two tips for follow-up.
The Department of Justice earlier had fired the Milwaukee Special Agent-In-Charge for allowing nearly four dozen tips to languish.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said then no systemic problem existed with investigating child porn tips.
An assistant Attorney General said the newly revealed cases weren't necessarily mishandled.
They were simply targeted for further review.
