Milwaukee Man Sentenced to Prison for I-41 Rest Stop Attack

A 25-year-old Milwaukee man has been sentenced to prison
after being found guilty of robbing and beating a man at a rest stop on
Interstate 41 near Lomira in September of 2017. Keenan Brown was sentenced to
eight years in prison, followed by five years of extended supervision in Dodge
County Court on Wednesday. Brown and another individual robbed and viciously
beat a truck driver from out-of-state at the rest stop, getting away with $90,
and some of the man’s property. The victim suffered cuts and fractures to his
face, bleeding on his brain and a loss of consciousness. Brown was identified through
DNA found on the victim’s wallet and clothes. Dodge County District Attorney
Kurt Klomberg said in a statement that he was “satisfied” with the court’s
sentence and that “brutal crimes like the one committed by Brown need to be
answered with stern sentences.” Brown will not be released from prison until
2029.
