A 33-year-old Waukesha woman wanting to avoid traffic tickets could instead get jail time because she made multiple false emergency phone calls to police dispatchers.
Aisha R. Jackson was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Wednesday with seven counts of placing a false emergency call. Jackson pleaded guilty Wednesday during her initial court appearance to two of the charges in exchange for the other five being dropped. She faces up to 180 days in jail and a $600 fine when she is sentenced Jan. 31
According to the criminal complaint:
On Jan. 21, 2011, Jackson was pulled over by Waukesha police officers when they got a call about three masked men entering a gas station. The officers left the traffic stop and went to the gas station, but didn’t find anyone there.
In 2011, Jackson was pulled over on May 20, 21, Aug. 22, Sept. 16, Oct. 26 and Dec. 15, and on each occasion Waukesha police dispatchers would get a call from a woman reporting a major crime in progress, but when officers would arrive, no one would be at the location.
Investigators traced the number back to Jackson who had placed the calls when she was pulled over by police in order to avoid getting a citation.
