On July 7, D.C. Superior Court Judge Sean Staples granted unsupervised probation and a release order for a non-fatal shooting defendant.
Ahmarrae Brooks, 25, faces multiple alleged charges, including assault on a police officer while armed, assault with a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm during the crime of violence for his alleged involvement in a non-fatal shooting that occurred on the 900 block of New Jersey Avenue NW, on January 27, 2021.
Brooks says he has fully complied with his probation conditions except for a rearrest in a Maryland case.
At the hearing, Brook’s counsel, Peter Cooper, cited the defendant’s commitment to Youth Rehabilitation Act (YRA) and requested reduced probation conditions for his client. Without objection from the prosecution, Judge Staples agreed.
Judge Staples then issued a release order for Brooks as long as he complies with the conditions in the Maryland matter.
The next hearing is scheduled for August 14.Follow this case
