Community activist Attorney Michael Hupy has put up reward money totaling $300,000 to help solve crime in the Milwaukee community. Over the last seven years, this reward money has been used as an incentive for people to provide authorities with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for committing crime in the Milwaukee area. Since 2015, $75,000 of the $300,000 has been rewarded.
“Making Milwaukee a safer place is my main goal,” said Attorney Hupy. “These rewards are earned by community members who stick up for what they believe in and get people doing horrible crimes off of the streets”.
At a recent Milwaukee Crime Stoppers press conference, the police chief and Wisconsin State Senator, Lena Taylor, commended Attorney Hupy for offering rewards before the Milwaukee Crime Stoppers came to Milwaukee.
In Attorney Hupy’s efforts to fight crime in the Milwaukee community, he became the president of Milwaukee Crime Stoppers. Milwaukee Crime Stoppers is part of a nationwide organization that has collected hundreds of millions of dollars and solved thousands of crimes. Anyone with information is urged to contact Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS (8477).
The $300,000 in rewards were put up for the following series of Milwaukee cases:
$25,000 -- Archie Brown and Damani Terry
$25,000 – 10-year-old boy
$50,000 -- Laylah Petersen - PAID
$100,000 -- Tay Jackson
$25,000 -- Brazil Johnson
$50,000 – Za’Layia Jenkins - PAID
$25,000 -- Next murder case
Although three of these cases have had arrests made, Attorney Hupy hopes that people in the community come forward with information regarding the open cases that still have $250,000 in rewards on the table. “We have far too much unsolved crime in Milwaukee,” said Attorney Hupy. “I am proud to serve as the president of Milwaukee Crime Stoppers and to be an activist in this community working to put those who have committed crimes behind bars.”
