The books are finally closed on several area crimes as Waukesha County Circuit Court judges hand down sentences for crimes that included armed robbery and trashing a home and car.

The three men convicted in the Dec. 22, 2015, armed robbery of the Loomis Petro Mart, S107 W16311 Loomis Road, all were sentenced to prison.

Donald Counter, 28, Muskego, received the lightest sentence of a year in prison, with the last nine months being with work release privileges. He also is to serve five years probation, although Judge Michael Aprahamian stayed that part of the sentence. Counter had pleaded no contest.

Counter also was ordered to help pay $3,207 in restitution, serve 150 hours of community service and write a letter of apology to the victim.

Also sentenced

Antonio Crivello, 36, was sentenced to six years in prison and seven years supervision for the robbery by Judge Michael Maxwell. He also handed down a sentence of two years in prison and four years supervision to Dontrell Walls, 38.

According to the criminal complaint, the three entered the gas station about 7:30 p.m., with at least one of them being armed with a pistol. They yelled at the clerk to open the cash register or they would shoot, the complaint says.

In another case, a 54-year-old woman accused of trashing a car and home to the tune of $5,552 in damage received a sentence of 50 hours of community service. She is Mary Jo Saggio of Muskego. The home and car belonged to the man she had formerly lived with, according to the criminal complaint. The incident happened April 4, 2015.

Saggio pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, but the criminal damage to property charge was dismissed.

Battling teen

A New Berlin man, now 19, was placed on two years probation and ordered to have an addiction assessment and get treatment, if recommended, after he pleaded no contest to battery to a police officer.

The teen was accused of struggling with police after allegedly shoplifting three packs of cigarettes from Walgreens, 3855 S. Moorland Road, New Berlin. In the April 23, 2015, incident, the defendant, then 17, struck an officer with his elbow and spit in his face, the complaint says. He struggled so violently that police used an electronic stun gun twice to gain control of him and needed two spit guards to contain him.

The man also was ordered to spend 90 days in the Waukesha County Jail, but the judge stayed that as long as he stays out of trouble.
