Waukesha parade suspect escorted out of court after violent oubursts

Date:

Darrell Brooks went from sleeping in his hearing Friday to outbursts, yelling at Judge Jennifer Dorow and Sheriff’s Deputies. Brooks made comments about politics and told the delegates to stay away from him. The judge said she would not tolerate the outburst, which could result in Brooks being held with contempt of court. After the lunch break, Brooks returned and sat quietly at his defense table. When lawyers began discussing possible jurors and which jurors to strike before the jury was selected, Brooks asked to be taken back to his cell. Brooks told the judge he wasn’t feeling well and didn’t want to go to court. The judge allowed him to leave and the lawyers moved on. Over two days of hearings, the judge dropped 6 murders for drunken use of a vehicle. Against the wishes of the defense, the judge allows the state to use Brooks’s interrogation from the night of the parade and the next day while Brooks was in custody. The trial will start on October 3. It is expected that just over 300 people will be brought in for the jury selection. Brooks faces life in prison if convicted of willful manslaughter.
