Peter Braun, 57, Lomira, was sentenced by Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Sciascia to three years of prison followed by three years of extended supervision for Possession of Child Pornography.

On January 12, 2021, a DCI Special Agent started an investigation into photos that had been uploaded to various platforms by Braun that contained child pornography.  During the investigation, the Agent received information from the Lomira Police Department that Braun had been observed chatting with very young girls online.  

A search warrant was executed, and Agents found various pornographic images and videos of girls as young as five years old.  

Braun claimed that he first sent the pictures as a joke, stating that he didn’t know that the children were underage.
