A preliminary hearing for the Milwaukee man charged with trying to ram a police squad car in a chase following an alleged attempted shoplifting at Walmart in New Berlin was set last week for Dec. 1 in Waukesha County Circuit Court..

Jc T Rice, 30, of 3503 N. 36th St., is charged with second degree recklessly endangering safety, attempting to flee a traffic officer, both felonies, and with retail theft and resisting an officer.

The incident happened about 5 p.m. Aug. 16 at Walmart, 15205 W. Greenfield Ave., when New Berlin police tried to stop Rice from leaving with a television set for which he had not paid, according to the criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

According to the complaint, the defendant allegedly drove away from two officers in the lot and directly toward a squad car entering the lot. His minivan fled east on Greeenfield Avenue, nearly hitting a squad car that had to pull out of the way at Elm Grove Road. His speed was allegedly nearly 60 mph.

When officers tried to box him in, he allegedly sped up to ram the squad in front who also had to pull away. The minivan went out of control when he tried to jump the median separating him from westbound traffic lanes.  The minivan spun and hit a light pole in the 12000 block of Greenfield Avenue.

Other cases

Emily Doss, 18, of S82 W12944 Acker Drive, Muskego. She is accused of  telling police that she had prostituted herself since March, according to a complaint.

She is charged with one count of prostitution and possession of marijuana.

She pleaded not guilty and a sentencing hearing is pending.

A hearing had been scheduled for Oct. 3 for Trista Ihrcke, 13235 W. National Ave., New Berlin, who pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct, domestic abuse for allegedly threatening to stab her ex-husband. She also is accused of throwing items around her apartment.

She did not appear at the hearing and according to court records she is forfeiting the $1,000 signature bond and an arrest warrant was issued.


Two other local cases are  sex-related incidents, one involving a 19-year-old Milwaukee woman sending nude photos of herself to a 14-year-old New Berlin girl.

The woman, Ann Malone, 3422 N. 97th Place, is charged with two counts of exposing intimate parts to a child and with one count of contributing to the delinquency of a child.

According to the criminal complaint:

Malone and the girl met in February 2015 and since then the defendant allegedly sent the teen two nude videos of herself in the shower and other videos and photos. She persistently requested that the girl send a nude video, which the the child did, the complaint says.

The girl said they were not sexually active at the time, but that she felt that her relationship with the defendant was complicated, according to the complaint.

The complaint alleges that on Jan. 1, 2016, the girl left her house and Malone drove her and a friend to a party in Milwaukee where both girls got extremely drunk.

Malone pleaded not guilty Aug. 22 and a hearing was scheduled for Oct. 24. Meanwhile, the defendant is expected to begin a treatment program to begin in November.

It is the 180-degree Juvenile Diversion program that offers a voluntary alternative to the criminal justice system for those aged 17-22, and their families. The nine-month program is designed to help young offenders learn from their mistakes, make positive changes in their lives, and take responsibility for their actions.

Assault charged

The other case involves Nicolas Piette, 21, of S77 W17857 St. Leonards Court, Muskego, who is scheduled to go to trial Tuesday on a charge of second degree sexual assault/use of force, a felony.

According to the criminal complaint:

He allegedly had intercourse four times with an ex-girlfriend at her home while she was under the influence of sleeping pills. She said that she was drowsy but woke up during the incident, screamed and tried to get away.

The alleged assault happened about 7:30 a.m. July 30, 2015, in Muskego. The victim said she let the defendant in because he wanted to give her a letter. She said they talked for a few minutes and she told him to let himself out.

The complaint says that she returned to her bed and fell asleep, only to wake up with the defendant having  sexual intercourse with her.

Piette was charged in August 2015 and the defendant pleaded not guilty in September 2015. Various motions have been heard and two jury trials have been rescheduled since then.
