The man accused of killing six and injuring 62 when he drove his car into a Christmas parade in Wisconsin appeared before a judge on Tuesday, as the court was told of his lengthy criminal history – and a child was added to the list of victims. 

Darrell Brooks Jr. (39), made his first court appearance on Tuesday when the death count rose.

According to the court, he was subject to multiple prior violent convictions and charges in three other states. He also had a lengthy time in Georgia custody.

Brooks was repeatedly absent from court appearances. A $5 million cash bail was recommended for Brooks. The court was informed that Brooks was financially insolvent. 

Judge said that it was an extraordinary bail amount, however it was an exceptional case.

Brooks was a man who had a long history not adhering to ‘your social norms’ and he stated that the bail was justifiable.
