MILWAUKEE (AP) - Court records show that in at least two cases, the Wisconsin Department of Justice took years to act on detailed and credible tips about online child pornography.

As a result, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/MGl1N6 ), a 19-year-old Milwaukee man with a history of sexual assault arrests was left free to allegedly molest a 15-year-old schoolmate. And a Pewaukee man who worked as a juvenile drug and alcohol counselor got just a nine-month work-release sentence that didn't require registering as a sex offender.

Both cases had been referred to the state by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Two Division of Criminal Investigation special agents were reassigned after the newspaper asked questions about the cases.

Justice spokeswoman Dana Brueck says the cases "reflect some level of staff negligence."
