WAUKESHA — Brian Pierick — the boyfriend of one of Gov. Scott Walker’s former aides during his time as Milwaukee’s County Executive nabbed in an ongoing John Doe investigation, returned to court Thursday morning, September 27th. A judge set a trial date for Pierick for December 11th.
Pierick faces trial on charges of child enticement and exposing his privates to a 17-year-old boy.
Pierick is the partner of Timothy Russell, a former Walker aid accused of embezzling thousands of dollars intended for veterans. The charges came as investigators were looking into possible illegal activity from Russell, and found a text message between Pierick and the teen.
Pierick, is accused of enticing the teen, whom he met on Craig’s List. The teen initially told Pierick he was 19-years-old. Pierick’s lawyers asked the judge that the case be tossed, but a judge denied the motion back in April.
If convicted, Pierick could spend nearly 30 years in prison.
