Darrell Brooks now faces 77 counts associated to the Waukesha Christmas Parade assault, which killed six folks and injured dozens of others, after prosecutors filed 71 additional charges Wednesday.
The 39-year-old Brooks may have a preliminary listening to Friday morning. Shortly after the assault, prosecutors charged him with six counts of first-degree intentional murder. The additional charges embrace 61 first-degree counts of “recklessly endangering safety,” six counts of “hit and run-involved death,” two felony counts of bail leaping, and two home abuse counts of battery.
In November 2021, Brooks was launched on $1,000 bail after allegedly driving over the mom of his baby with a automobile, regardless of scoring extraordinarily excessive on Milwaukee County’s pre-trial threat evaluation. Five days after being bonded out, he allegedly dedicated the Christmas Parade assault.
Sen. Ron Johnson honored the victims of the assault on the Senate flooring in December by holding a second of silence. He later pushed the Department of Justice for solutions on pretrial launch. The Milwaukee County district lawyer stated Brooks’ bail for the November cost was “inappropriately low” bail which was “not consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail.”
