Waukesha Christmas Parade Attack Suspect Changes Plea

(Waukesha) The suspect in last year’s Waukesha Christmas parade attack is changing his plea to not guilty by reason of mental defect.

If three psychiatrists uphold the assertion by Derrell Brooks, Junior’s defense team, his lawyers would then need to prove their client did not know right from wrong the day he drove an SUV through a parade crowd, killing six people – including a former Beaver Dam educator – and injuring dozens more.

The determination from the doctors is due in August. Brooks’ trial is set to start in October.
