Darrell Brooks Found Guilty Of All 76 Charges In the Waukesha Parade Killing

WAUKESHA WI – After more than a three-week trial the jury found Darrell E. Brooks guilty on all 76 charges after driving his vehicle killing 6 at the Waukesha Wisconsin Christmas Parade on Nov.21, 2021.

It took the jury just under three hours of deliberations to reach the guilty verdict.

He initially faced 83 charges in the case. Before trial, in late August, Waukesha County Judge Jennifer Dorow sided with the defense and struck Counts 78-83 (six counts of homicide by vehicle, use of a controlled substance). The judge ruled there cannot be multiple punishments for the same crime.

The 76 charges Brooks was tried on included six counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the six people killed. Brooks, who is representing himself, after firing his lawyer. His counts were six counts of first-degree intentional homicide, 61 counts of recklessly endangering safety, six counts of hit-and-run causing death, two counts of felony bail jumping and one count of battery.

He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for the convictions.

Durning his trial he had several outbursts during the trial and often would argue with the judge. Throughout the trial, he has spoken over prosecutors and the judge, asked vague questions, challenged the court’s jurisdiction and declared “Darrell Brooks” is not his name.

Sentencing will be at a later time.
