Childcare worker facing kiddie-porn charges

MILWAUKEE (WSAU)  A Milwaukee child care worker is due back in court February 5th on two felony charges of possessing child pornography. According to prosecutors, a youngster picked up Louie Flowers’ phone at a north side Milwaukee day care center last June, and saw a photo of a nude young girl. The child showed the phone to teachers who saw numerous other pornographic items while Flowers was away on a field trip to Chicago with a group of youngsters. He was arrested later that day. And police said they later found numerous images of child porn on Flowers’ computer at his home in Brown Deer, showing girls as young as six being molested.

The 39-year-old Flowers worked for six years at Milwaukee’s Silver Spring Neighborhood Center until his arrest.

The Journal Sentinel wrote a story about the case last month, a few weeks before charges were filed. Prosecutor Paul Tiffin would not say why it took six months to take the case to court – but he said a variety of things can hold up matters, including forensic analysis. In the meantime, the paper said Flowers was looking for work in December, and another child care employer might not have known about his arrest six months’ earlier.

Flowers is free on a $10,000 cash bond. At his next court appearance, a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
