Milwaukee Jury Returns Verdict of Guilty in Armed Robbery Case

MADISON – Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced that on October 3, 2013, a Milwaukee County jury returned a verdict of guilty, in the trial of Milwaukee resident Kenyatta A. Clincy, on the charge of Robbery While Armed with an article that the victim reasonably believes is a dangerous weapon, a Class C Felony.  Sentencing is scheduled to take place in November.  At sentencing, the defendant is facing a fine not to exceed $100,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 40 years, or both.


On the night of March 25, 2013, Clincy robbed an Assistant District Attorney in front of her home with a shiny metal object that the victim believed was a gun.  Clincy escaped the scene by jumping into a getaway car driven by a co-defendant.  Less than 3 hours later, Clincy was found speeding at more than double the speed limit in the same car that was used in the robbery, wearing the same clothing that he wore during the robbery, and in possession of a shiny metal implement positioned at his feet directly beneath the steering wheel.  The shiny metal implement was a lug wrench that has a shape similar to that of a gun.


Chapter 950 victims witness services are being provided by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services.  This matter was investigated by the City of Milwaukee Police Department and the Milwaukee HIDTA.  This case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Eric D. Défort.
