Gets 6 Life Sentences



On Thursday, Darrell Brooks is due back in court on accusations from Milwaukee.

Although Brooks' case in Waukesha County is over, his time in a courtroom has not.

He is accused of two counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and of having a firearm in his possession while a felon in prison in one of the open cases, which relates to an incident that happened in 2020

In relation to the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy, Brooks was found guilty on Wednesday and given a life sentence without the chance of parole.

He was given six lifetime prison terms, one for each person he killed during the parade attack, by judge Jennifer Dorow.

“You have absolutely no remorse for anything that you do. You have no empathy for anyone,” Judge Dorow said. “Frankly, Mr. Brooks, no one is safe from you.”

Brooks did tell the court, “I want you to know not only am I sorry for what happened, I’m sorry that you could not see what’s truly in my heart, that you cannot see the remorse that I have. That you cannot count all the tears that I have dropped in this year.”

Six people were killed and scores more were injured in the Christmas 2021 hit-and-run.
