A number of area police cases have been closed with convictions while some, including that of the man who tried to kill a gas station clerk but his gun jammed, are still moving through the court system.

A hearing will be held in Waukesha Circuit Court for Zachary T. Stetina who is accused of attempting to shoot the clerk of the BP gas station he was allegedly trying to rob at 16401 W. Greenfield Ave., New Berlin.

According to the criminal complaint, the gun jammed and saved the woman's life. The attempted robbery was April 18. Stetina, 19, of Inez Drive, New Berlin, pleaded not guilty on May 31.

Two others who were allegedly involved also will have hearings in October. They are Jonah Verdun, 18, of River Road, New Berlin, who is the alleged lookout, and Ashley Sobczak, 20, of Olivia Lane, New Berlin, who is suspected of driving the car in which Stetina left the station.

Sex with child

New Berlin resident Jonathan Malczewski formerly of Grange Avenue was sentenced to two years imprisonment and seven years extended supervision after pleading guilty to repeated sexual assault of a child.

He is convicted of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old New Berlin girl the summer of 2015. He was 18 at the time, although he told the girl he was 16, the criminal complaint says. Also according to the complaint, there was sexual intercourse at least once. The sexual contact happened either at the girl's home or at Malone Park in New Berlin.

The two met through a friend of the girl and they corresponded via social media, the complaint says.

In a plea bargain, an allegation that he arranged via computer to meet another 13-year-old girl for sex was dropped. He was 18 years old at the time. He was allegedly waiting to meet the girl when he was arrested, the complaint says.

$388,000 stolen

Two brothers and a woman have been convicted in the theft of $388,000 in cash kept in a safe in a Muskego home.

They are Javier Rizo, 31, Wind Lake; Dario Rizo, 30, Milwaukee; and Tiffany Kapitanski, 26, West Allis.

The burglary happened in November 2014.

According to the complaint, the brothers took the safe from a closet. The thieves were allegedly tipped to the existence of the money and the safe by the son's ex-girlfriend who was a friend of Kapitanski, according to the complaint.

The day after the burglary, the Rizos and Kapitanski are believed to have purchased three vehicles with the stolen cash. A house in West Allis also was subsequently purchased, the complaint alleges.

The three vehicles were a 2014 Nissan Altima purchased for $15,632; a 2013 Nissan Rogue SUV, for $28,858; and a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, $39,802. Javier Rizo and Tiffany Kapitanski allegedly also used some of the money to travel to California.

Waukesha Circuit Court Judge Michael Maxwell sentenced Javier Rizo to five years in prison and five years extended supervision. He sentenced Dario Rizo to three years in prison and four years of extended supervision. Finally, he sentenced Kapitanski to 18 months in prison and two and a half years of extended supervision. All three had plea bargains.

Maxwell also ordered two homes and the three cars be used to meet the $388,000 set as restitution plus fees.
