BREAKING – Prosecutors have charged the Waukesha Christmas Parade attack suspect with 71 new charges in addition to the six homicide counts after he allegedly drove his SUV into a crowd of people on November 21, 2021.
Darrell Brooks, 39, now faces 61 additional counts of recklessly endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon for each person injured at the tragic incident, along with the six homicide charges.
Each charge carries a possible penalty of seven and a half years in prison. The first-degree homicide charges carry a mandatory life sentence if Brooks is convicted.
He also faces six counts of hit-and-run involving death, two counts of bail jumping and two counts of domestic abuse battery, according to the court documents.
Brooks is being held at the Waukesha County Jail on $5 million bail and is due back in court on Friday for a preliminary hearing.
From FOX News:
Waukesha parade suspect Darrell Brooks’ release on just $1,000 bail weeks before the deadly attack prompted Milwaukee’s district attorney to announce an investigation into his own office’s request for such a low sum.
Numerous experts, including former prosecutors, police officers and defense attorneys, told Fox News Digital that Brooks’ bail seemed too low for the crime: allegedly punching a woman, stealing her phone and running her over with the same SUV believed to have been used weeks later to cause carnage at a family-oriented holiday parade. He also had charges for another firearms felony pending an active warrant out of Nevada and a record of skipping bail.
“The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks,” Milwaukee DA John Chisholm’s office said Monday while announcing the internal investigation. “The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail.”
From Daily Mail:
Brooks’ motive remains unknown.
He had been out on bail just before the hit-and-run, which had been set at $1,000 despite the fact that he’s been bailed twice in 2021 and has a lengthy criminal history stretching back to 1999 that includes a laundry list of offenses.
On November 5, weeks before the parade, Brook was charged with endangerment for allegedly running over the mother of his child with his SUV.
Brooks was assessed as a high risk to reoffend, but the prosecutor who handled his initial appearance still sought the $1,000 cash bail. He posted it on November 19.
This monster is a career criminal and we have no doubt he will spend the rest of his pathetic life behind bars where he belongs.
ROT IN HELL.
