Necedah woman pleads to lesser charge
A Necedah woman charged with being a party to burglarizing the Necedah Vets Hall last summer has pleaded to a lesser charge. 33-year old Stacy Westrich was in court Wednesday afternoon with attorney Dan Berkos. Westrich agreed to plead ‘no contest’ to a misdemeanor charge of receiving stolen property and the burglary and criminal damage to property charges were dismissed. Juneau County District Attorney Mike Solovey told the court, “Westrich has been cooperative with law enforcement and all the stolen property has been recovered. The other party involved in the case, 22-year old Steven Brown of Necedah, is in prison.” According to court documents, Brown was convicted in December 2012 of burglarizing the Necedah Vets Hall. He was sentenced to 4-years in prison plus 3-years of extended supervision. Judge John Roemer agreed to the plea agreement and fined Westrich $10 plus court costs for a total of $265.60. Westrich had posted a $500 cash bond in August 2012. The court ordered the $265.50 be taken out of the cash bond and the balance returned to Westrich.
