BARRON COUNTY -- The Court has sentenced Kevin Blomberg on multiple convictions including the use of a computer to facilitate a child sexual assault and possession of child pornography.

A criminal complaint was filed in Barron County Circuit Court against Kevin Blomberg, of Rice Lake, WI, on February 19, 2021, after he was arrested in the culmination of an undercover sex sting conducted by the Rice Lake Police Department.

An undercover officer operating an online profile made contact with Blomberg online in February 2021. Blomberg then engaged in a lengthy conversation with the undercover officer and sent nude photos of himself after the undercover officer identified themselves as a 15-year-old female. Blomberg then made arrangements to meet behind the Kwik Trip store located in Barron, WI. Law Enforcement was on the scene when Blomberg arrived at the Kwik Trip and took him into custody.

Charges of Class C Felony Attempt Sexual Assault of Child Under 16 Years of Age; Class D Felony Child Enticement; Class C Felony Use of a Computer To Facilitate a Child Sex Crime; two counts of Class D Felony Possession of Child Pornography; Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine; and two counts of Class H Felony Bail Jumping were filed against Blomberg.

Blomberg had previously been charged in multiple other Barron County Circuit Court cases with two counts of Class D Felony Possession of Child Pornography from a violation date of January 17, 2020, and multiple counts of Class H Felony Forgery; Class H Felony Bail Jumping; Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, Class I Felony Possession of THC (2nd+), Misdemeanor Possession of Amphetamine, Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Misdemeanor Theft.

In June 2021, Blomberg entered pleas of Guilty to one count of Class C Felony Use of a Computer To Facilitate a Child Sex Crime; three counts of Class D Felony Possession of Child Pornography; and two counts of Class H Felony Forgery. The remaining charges against Blomberg were dismissed but read in.

On September 2, 2021, Blomberg was scheduled to be sentenced, however, that hearing was delayed according to online circuit court records. In October 2021, defense counsel for Blomberg withdrew and in May 2022, online court records indicate that Blomberg received a new attorney with the State Public Defender’s Office filing a Notice of Appointment of Counsel.

Blomberg appeared most recently on July 19, 2022, and the Hon. J.M. Bitney ordered Blomberg to serve four 15-year prison sentences on each of his convictions for Class C Felony Use of a Computer To Facilitate a Child Sex Crime and Class D Felony Possession of Child Pornography with 7 years and 6 months of initial confinement, followed by 7 years and 6 months of extended supervision for each sentence; and two 4 year prison sentences for his conviction of Class H Felony Forgery with 2 years of initial confinement followed by 2 years of extended supervision for each sentence.

Online court records indicate that one of Blomberg’s 15-year prison sentences is to be served consecutively to the rest of the sentences, the remainder of which are all to be served concurrently, so Blomberg is ordered to fulfill 15 years of initial confinement in state prison, with credit for 577 days already served in county jail, followed by 15 years of extended supervision. Blomberg will also be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Conditions of supervision will require Blomber to undergo a comprehensive sex offender and psychosexual evaluation; a mental health evaluation or assessment; alcohol and other drug assessment; and any and all evaluations recommended by Probation Agent; and he must comply with treatment/counseling for sexual deviance as well as all other recommended counseling, treatment, and follow-up. Blomberg will also be required to maintain absolute sobriety and have agent approval for dating relationships and the use of electronics and the internet. He will be prohibited from having unsupervised contact with minor children outside of immediate family under the age of 16 years.
