More pieces of the criminal history for Darrell Brooks, suspect in the Waukeska massacre, are coming to light this week.
A new report shows Darrell’s "rap sheet" includes being convicted of making a bomb threat to a casino, and having sex with an underaged girl.
While some corporate media outlets are attempting to paint Sunday’s assault on the city’s Christamas parade as an accident, others are looking at how the suspect’s social media posts hint at his potential radicalization.
The criminal history of Darrell Brooks in the state of Nevada is outlined by the Daily Mail:
- January 2007: pleaded guilty to "statutory sexual solicitation" charges for having sex with someone aged 16 or under at some point in mid-2006, while being over the age of 21 himself. The punishment for Brooks being three years of probation, a fine of $2362, and a "psycho-sexual" evaluation. Another charge was tacked on for failing to tell the police he changed address while being a registered sex offender.
- March 2007: Made a bomb threat by phone against the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada. Brooks pleaded guilty to the charge of conspiring to disturb the peace, and was placed on probation for his sentence (alongside being banned from the casino for the rest of his life).
According to the outlet, the change of address charge against Darrell Brooks has been outstanding since August 2016. The Sparks Criminal Justice Center in Nevada has since renewed it three times, the most recent being at the start of 2021.
Yesterday the Daily Mail reported on how Darrell Brooks shot his nephew in July 2020 over a cell phone.
In the wake of the Waukesha car attack, questions arose surrounding the conduct of the Milwaukee District Attorney. DA John Chisholm himself admitted that suspect Darrell Brooks being granted $1000 to bail out was "inappropriately low," in a previous altercation where a car was used as a weapon.
One count for each of the five were killed in Sunday’s attack. However, out of the dozens more injured, a sixth fatality happened yesterday when 8-year-old Jackson Sparks succumbed to his injuries. Jackson’s 12-year-old brother suffered a fractured skull but was cleared to return home to further recover, per the family’s GoFundMe page.
