Washington, Nov 16 – The US Justice sentenced this Wednesday to life in prison Darrell Brooks, author of the outrage against a Christmas parade in Waukesha (Wisconsin, USA), which last year left six dead and more than 60 wounded.

Waukesha County Judge Jennifer Dorow sentenced Brooks, 40, to life in prison without the possibility of parole after a jury found him guilty in October on six counts of first-degree intentional murder by the that he was accused.

Brooks was arrested by police on November 21, 2021, shortly after ramming a red SUV into the crowd gathered for a Christmas parade in Waukesha, a suburb of the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The convict has been in and out of jail for the past twenty years, and has criminal records in Wisconsin, Nevada and Georgia.

At the time of the Christmas fair attack, Brooks was out on bail for hitting a woman with her vehicle weeks earlier.
