In response to the indictment, United States Attorney Krueger stated, “Carjackings must stop. The United States Attorney’s Office, in collaboration with the federal and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively prosecuting violent crimes within our community.”
This case is being investigated and prosecuted under the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) initiative. PSN is a federal, state, and local law enforcement collaboration to identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals responsible for violent crimes in our neighborhoods. The PSN strategy brings together all levels of law enforcement and community resources to reduce violent crime and improve the quality of life in all our neighborhoods. This matter is being investigated by the FBI’s Milwaukee Area Violent Crimes Task Force and the Milwaukee Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Margaret B. Honrath.
The public is cautioned that an indictment is merely a charge and the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
