Milwaukee Man Sentenced to Nine Years in Federal Prison for Carjacking Spree

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Wisconsin

United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling announced today that Madison Tyler (age 20) was sentenced to nine years in federal prison for his role in a series of carjackings in the Milwaukee and Oak Creek areas.

According to court records, Tyler participated in six carjackings in September and December 2020.  In two of the carjackings, Tyler brandished a firearm. Court records indicate that Tyler and his co-actors targeted victims much older than themselves, and the ages of Tyler’s victims ranged from 56 to 79 years old.

“Carjacking defendants like Tyler are willing to traumatize their victims and place the lives and well-being of innocent community members at risk – all for a few dollars or for a rush of adrenaline” said U.S. Attorney Frohling.  “The U.S. Attorney’s Office remains committed to working with its federal, state, and local partners to hold these types of violent offenders accountable and to pursue justice for the victims of these senseless acts.”

This matter was investigated by the FBI’s Milwaukee Area Violent Crimes Task Force, the Milwaukee Police Department, and the Oak Creek Police Department.  It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Abbey M. Marzick.

Following his term of imprisonment, Tyler also will spend three years on supervised release.  He also was ordered to pay $1,605.31 in restitution.
