Despite the fact that Darrell Brooks is currently serving a life sentence, it seems that he still has some issues to face. He allegedly has an “antisocial personality disorder” and he was accused of restraining an officer. He has also been accused of lying about being “thrown to the ground” after being arrested.
Sentenced to multiple lifetimes in prison
During a two-day sentence hearing, convicted Waukesha Christmas parade attacker Darrell Brooks was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of extended supervision. His sentencing capped a long, grueling legal process.
Brooks was originally out on a $1,000 bond less than two weeks before he mowed down 69 people with his vehicle during the Waukesha Christmas parade. He was eventually convicted of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide and 61 counts of first-degree reckless endangering safety with the use of a dangerous weapon. He was also sentenced to five years for each conviction.
Brooks was also sentenced to six consecutive sentences of 25 years each for the hit-and-run counts resulting in death, and to nine months for battery on an ex-girlfriend. The judge also imposed a maximum sentence of 12.5 years for the reckless endangering safety charge.
Charges against him include resisting an officer
Those who have been following charges against Darrell Brooks know that he has a long criminal history. He has had more than 15 arrests in Wisconsin. He has been arrested for a wide range of offenses, including disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and battery. He has also been charged with felony bail jumping.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has opened an investigation into Brooks’ bail. Brooks was $1,000 cash bond. But the DA’s office said the bail recommendation was “inappropriately low.”
Brooks’ case was set for a jury trial in 2021. However, the trial is postponed due to court congestion. The next scheduled hearing is December 2021. The judge believes Brooks is a flight risk.
Brooks was charged with three misdemeanors in early November 2021. He was also charged with bail jumping and failure to appear in court.But they were all related to domestic abuse.
His mother spoke on his behalf
During the trial of Darrell Brooks, his mother spoke on his behalf. She said that he suffered from bipolar disorder since he was a kid. She also criticized the lawmakers for not taking care of those in need of mental health treatment.
Brooks’ mother pushed for him to get treatment in prison. She said she hopes that it doesn’t turn into victim bashing.
Brooks has said that he will have people speak on his behalf at his sentencing. His mother and grandmother are expected to do so. Brooks also has the right to argue in court.
Brooks said he will be using the two-hour statement to educate the court about his background. He also said that he respects the District Attorney Susan L. Opper.
He lied about being
Count Darrell Brooks was awarded a couple of additional terms of incarceration based on his aforementioned convictions, including the requisite three years in prison plus three years of extended supervision. In the court’s eyes, Brooks is a man of action.
On the other hand, the judge had a difficult time finding the silver lining. She ruled that Brooks had a lengthy criminal history spanning multiple states, including a slew of felonies that could be considered misdemeanors by other people’s standards. She was more than a little scathing towards Brooks’ slams against the DA. She was equally as critical of Brooks’ zealousness and acerbic attitude towards those defending him.
Despite the lack of a formal sentencing hearing, Brooks did speak at length on his own behalf. In addition to a series of tepid if not apathetic remarks, Brooks mowed down at least five blocks of parade-goers in the process.
He had an “antisocial personality disorder”
Several victims spoke to the court Tuesday during a sentencing hearing for Darrell Brooks Jr., who was convicted of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the deadly attack in the Waukesha Christmas parade last year. They spoke of the injuries they sustained, the mental and physical injuries of the people they loved, and a sense of personal safety they felt. They also spoke of the mental and physical toll Brooks’ violent behavior had on the community.
Judge Dorow said Brooks’ actions in the trial did not support his claim that he had mental health issues. She said Brooks showed no remorse, showed a lack of awareness of the crime, and acted carelessly.
Brooks’ family said Brooks had a lifetime of antisocial behavior and a history of mental illness. They said Brooks struggled with bipolar disorder since he was 12 years old. He also said he was physically abused as a child.
