Darrell Brooks status hearing for Milwaukee case

Darrell Brooks, the man accused in the Waukesha Christmas Parade attack, appeared in Milwaukee County court on Thursday, Sept. 15 for a status conference hearing. He will not be making any changes to his attorney representation. 

A final pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 17. 

The case in Milwaukee stems from when he allegedly ran over the mother of his child. This happened a short time before he is accused of driving through the Waukesha Christmas parade – killing six people and injuring dozens more last November.

In December 2021, Brooks was also charged in Milwaukee County for allegedly intimidating a witness. He is accused of making dozens of calls from jail to the victim in a domestic violence case. Fourteen of the calls were intimidating.

At the time of the Waukesha Christmas parade, Brooks was out on $1,000 in the domestic violence case. A low bond amount the Milwaukee County DA admitted was a mistake by an assistant.
