One of three Milwaukee men charged with stealing two all-terrain vehicles from a West Kewaunee residence Sept. 4 is awaiting sentencing in Milwaukee County Circuit Court after pleading guilty to failure to stop for an officer, a misdemeanor that had originally been charged as a felony.
Online court documents indicate Hector Figueroa Alicea, 37, pleaded guilty Sept. 7, three days after he allegedly recruited at least one of the other Kewaunee County defendants to commit the theft and led police on a high-speed chase after they interrupted the theft. The Milwaukee County charge was in connection with an incident that occurred April 9, 2017. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 13.
Kewaunee County Judge Keith Mehn issued an arrest warrant for Alicea on Sept. 24 after the three men were charged in the local incident. Court records indicate he is free on a $1,000 signature bond in the Milwaukee case.
The warrant and a criminal complaint charge Alicea with fleeing an officer, bail jumping, theft of movable property, and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property.
The other two men are scheduled for pre-trial conferences before Judge Keith Mehn during November.
Joaquin Bengio Ramos Rosado, 30, who is charged with theft, resisting/obstructing an officer, and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property, is due to appear next on Nov. 29. Hector Javier Rodriguez, 33, charged with felony theft and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage, is due in court Dec. 13. Rodriguez is being held in lieu of $3,500 cash bond, and Rosado is held on $5,000 cash bond.
