MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee County Sheriff’s deputy has resigned after he was charged in a fatal crash last January.
Former deputy Joel Streicher decided to resign from the office on Tuesday, five months after he was charged with reckless vehicular homicide.
Prosecutors say he crashed into a truck blocks away from the sheriff's office near 10th and State Street. The crash flipped Stinson’s vehicle on its side, killing 47-year-old Ceasar Stinson, a former Milwaukee Public Schools employee.
Following an internal investigation in July, Sheriff Earnell Lucas recommended that Streicher be fired from the office.
Stinson was a beloved member of the Milwaukee community. He mentored students and was a lobbyist for MPS for nearly 20 years.
