William T. Blake of Green Bay Arrested

 

GREEN BAY - On Monday, February 23, 2009 at 12:40 p.m. special agents from the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation arrested William T. Blake of 1331 Bellevue Street, #415 in Green Bay, WI and charged him with Use of a Computer to Facilitate a Child Sex Crime and Attempted Sexual Assault of a Child Under 16 Years of Age. The Eau Claire Police Department assisted in the interview of Mr. Blake. The Brown County Sheriff's Department assisted in the search of Blake's home.

 

On January 23, 2009 a special agent from the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children unit while working undercover in a chat room posing as a 15 year old female had an on-line conversation with the user name WILLYBLACK2023. When asked, the agent told WILLYBLACK2023 he was female and 15 years of age. During the conversation, WILLYBLACK2023 had graphic and sexually explicit conversations with the agent. WILLYBLACK2023 was later identified as William Blake.

 

On January 23 Mr. Blake agreed to meet the undercover officer at a Kwik Trip in Eau Claire, go to a motel and have sexual intercourse. Mr. Blake failed to show.

 

On January 28, 30 and February 12, 13, 17 and 19 the agent again had on-line conversations with William Blake. On February 20th the agent communicated with William Blake who wanted to meet for the purpose of having sexual intercourse at a motel in Eau Claire on February 23, 2009.

 

The agent met the defendant as agreed in Eau Claire. Blake initially claimed he did not even have a computer. The agent said "You're looking at Pam." Mr. Blake's eyes got rather wide. He said, then I guess I am in trouble. The defendant admitted that he had come to Eau Claire to have sexual intercourse with "Pam" who he thought was a fifteen year old girl.

 

Questions concerning this case should be directed towards the Eau Claire County District Attorney's Office.
