Criminal Background Submitted for Court Consideration
On Nov. 3, 1986, Brooks pleaded guilty to the court to 21 armed robberies that occurred from Dec. 16, 1985, to Aug. 11, 1986. Brooks was sentenced to eight years in state prison. (21 Strikes)
On Feb. 3, 1993, Brooks was convicted of one misdemeanor count of being in possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor vehicular evading. Brooks was sentenced to three years of probation and 60 days in jail.
On Sept. 29, 1993, Brooks was convicted of one felony count of second degree burglary and was sentenced to three years of formal probation. On Feb. 1, 1994, Brooks violated probation and was later sentenced to four years in state prison.
On Feb. 10, 1994, Brooks was convicted of one felony count of possession of a controlled substance and sentenced to three years in state prison concurrent to the four years he was serving for violating his probation.
On Dec. 17, 1998, Brooks was convicted of one felony count of evading a peace officer while driving reckless and one misdemeanor count each of assault on a peace officer and hit and run with property damage. Brooks was originally charged with one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, which would have constituted a Strike Offense, but the jury convicted him of a lesser related charge. This was Brooks’ Strike Offense for which he was sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison for evading a peace officer while reckless driving.
While incarcerated, Brooks committed several prison violations which included, but were not limited to, mutual combat, attempting to correspond with a prohibited prisoner, possession of escape paraphernalia, and possession of prohibited contraband.
