Milwaukee Man Sentenced To Eight Years In Prison For His Role In Lomira Wayside Attack

(Lomira) A Milwaukee man was sentenced Wednesday to eight years in prison for his role in assaulting and robbing a truck driver at a wayside in Lomira. In June, a jury convicted Keenan Brown of two felony counts of Robbery with the Use of Force and Substantial Battery. In September of 2017 an out-of-state truck driver stopped at the rest area on southbound 41 and was attacked by two individuals who left with the victim’s wallet, cell phone and roughly $90 dollars in loose change. The truck driver suffered a fractured jaw, brain hemorrhaging, head lacerations and the loss of a canine tooth. Authorities sent the victim’s clothing in for testing which came back positive with DNA from Brown. The 25-year-old, who was on parole at the time for robbery with the use of force in Milwaukee, denied any involvement in the wayside attack. Brown did provide buccal swabs for additional DNA testing which further confirmed his involvement. At sentencing, District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said he is satisfied with the court’s decision. He says brutal crimes like the one committed by Brown need to be answered with stern sentences. Brown’s eight year prison term was added to time he is already serving and will not be released until 2029. In addition to prison, Brown was also placed on extended supervision for five years.
