WAUKESHA, Wisconsin — A Wisconsin man whose case captured the attention of a nation ended yesterday.
Darrell Brooks received six consecutive life sentences, including an additional 700 years in prison, after being convicted of driving his mother’s SUV into a Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, last November.
6 people lost their lives in the horrific incident and nearly 100 more were injured.
The trial in which 40-year-old Brooks represented himself captivated the nation. Brooks was convicted last month on 76 counts including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
Following two days of the victim’s statements and courtroom outbursts by Brooks, Judge Jennifer Dorow sentenced him to the maximum sentence under Wisconsin law. Brooks has 20 days to appeal the court’s sentence.
