Waukesha Christmas parade killer Darrell Brooks was found guilty of intentional homicide on Wednesday after a jury deliberated for 2 hours Tuesday night.
Brooks faces life in prison.
Six innocents died following the horrific attack by Darrell Brooks, an anti-Trump Black Lives Matter supporter at the annual Waukesha Christmas Parade last November.
Witnesses said that as Brooks barreled through the parade he picked up speed.
** 18 Children were injured and sent to hospitals in the demonic attack.
** 62 individuals were injured in total
** 6 died including a child
8-year-old Jackson Sparks died in the hospital two days after the attack when the BLM driver ran over him and dozens of others at the Christmas parade.
Jackson’s brother, Tucker Sparks, 12, continues to heal.
Darrell Brooks pleaded not guilty to the 77 charges against, him including six charges of intentional homicide.
On Wednesday, Brooks, who represented himself, was found guilty of intentional homicide.
Darrell Brooks was found guilty of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide on Wednesday for driving his SUV into a crowd of Christmas parade attendees in Waukesha, Wisconsin, last November, killing six people and wounding dozens more.
He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for the convictions.
Brooks, 40, had pleaded not guilty to six counts of intentional homicide with the use of a dangerous weapon as well as more than 60 other counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. The judge is still reading the verdicts on the recklessly endangering safety counts.
Prosecutors said in closing arguments Tuesday he intentionally drove through the crowd at significant speeds and hit 68 individual parade-goers, turning a joyous afternoon into a horrific one.
On Tuesday, after removing him for the prosecution’s closing arguments due to interruptions, she called him “stubbornly defiant.”
“He continues to not respect the fact that a ruling has been made, and he wants to argue and reargue and reargue points that this court has already gone over,” she said.
Brooks previously pleaded not guilty by insanity, but his public defenders withdrew the insanity plea in September. The attorneys later filed a motion to withdraw from the case, and the judge ruled to allow Brooks to represent himself at trial.
