A 54-year-old Sussex man is facing charges after he passed a bad check at and then the business and police were unable to find him to pay it back.
James A. Brouillette was charged in Friday with one count of issuing a worthless check. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
This is the third time the man passed a worthless check since 1990. In addition, it should be noted Brouillette was found guilty of 2nd Degree Reckless Homicide in 1992.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Nov. 12, Brouillette went to Piggly Wiggly and passed a check for $28.55, which was later returned as bad. The store then sent a letter to an address for Brouillette in Waukesha, which was sent back “return to sender.”
The Waukesha Sheriff’s Department then tried to deliver the letter to the Waukesha address, a West Allis address and Brouillette’s Sussex address, but was unsuccessful.
He will make his initial appearance in court March 5.
