Darrel Brooks, who drove his SUV through Wisconsin’s Waukesha Christmas Parade in 2021 killing six people and injuring more than 60 others, was tried and found guilty.  Judge Jennifer Dorow issued six consecutive life sentences for six counts of first-degree intentional homicide, 17 and a half years for each of the 61 counts of reckless endangerment, 25 years for each of the six counts of hit and run, six years of two counts of bail jumping, and nine months for one count of battery.  She said, “One of the things that has become abundantly clear throughout this trial, Darrell Brooks understands exactly what he’s doing.”
