The Wisconsin attorney for representing Waukesha parade suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. in his Milwaukee County legal troubles has moved to withdraw from those cases due to new conflicts that arose when his client allegedly plowed through a Christmas procession, killing at least six people and injuring dozens.

"Relationships and familiarities, both direct and indirect, between Attorney Domask and members of Domask Law Office and individuals, families, groups, organizations and the communities affected by incidents arising on November 21, 2021 in the Wuakesha County Holiday Parade have created a concurrent conflict of interest in Attorney Domask’s representation of Mr. Brooks in this case," the motion reads.

Waukesha parade attack victim, 11, makes her family laugh despite injuries: 'Just glue me back together'

  Waukesha parade attack victim, 11, makes her family laugh despite injuries: 'Just glue me back together' Jessalyn Torres, 11, was dancing with her fellow members of the Waukesha Xtreme Dance Team in the city's Christmas parade in Wisconsin on Sunday when a suspect driving an SUV plowed into the young girls and other parade participants. "She was directly impacted by the vehicle," Ryan Kohnke, Jessalyn's uncle and a Waukesha resident who attended the parade, told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. "It looks like she might have heard the commotion behind her and turned and it hit her." She is one of several members of the dance team who remained a hospital's intensive care unit late Tuesday following the tragedy.

Domask had hinted at the decision last week, shortly after news of the parade attack emerged.

"Our hearts are broken for all families affected by the tragedy at the Waukesha Parade," attorney Joe Domask told Fox News Digital a week ago.

Regarding the charges in Milwaukee, he said he was still representing him, "at the moment."

  Shivering Waukesha suspect Darrell Brooks had no shoes, jacket asking for help after horror, couple says After allegedly plowing through Waukesha’s Christmas parade Sunday, Darrell Brooks Jr. showed up without his shoes, jacket or car on an unwitting couple’s front porch, asked for help and ate a sandwich inside. Brooks showed up on the porch in the middle of a football game, knocked and asked if he could use the host’s phone. Daniel Rider’s Ring doorbell camera recorded parts of the exchange in 20-second bursts, beginning about 20 minutes after the chaos at the parade.

Domask did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment on the latest move Monday.

A motion hearing on both cases is set for Tuesday morning.

DARRELL BROOKS FREED ON BAIL TWICE THIS YEAR DESPITE ACTIVE WARRANT IN NEVADA

Meanwhile, in nearby Waukesha, prosecutors added a sixth charge of first-degree intentional homicide, Wisconsin’s equivalent of first-degree murder, against Brooks Monday, following the death of a sixth victim, 8-year-old Jackson Sparks.

The Christmas parade attack also killed Virginia Sorenson, 79, LeAnna Owen, 71, Tamara Durand, 52, Jane Kulich, 52, and Wilhelm Hospel, 81, on Sunday and injured 62, according to authorities.

Waukesha District Attorney Susan Opper filed first-degree intentional homicide charges for the first five victims last Tuesday, revealing Jackson’s death during Brooks’ arraignment.

Brooks’ criminal record dates back to 1999, when he pleaded guilty to felony battery. Nevada authorities also placed him on their sex offender registry after he impregnated a 15-year-old girl, and he still has an active warrant there for bail jumping on another sex crime charge.

In addition to dozens of other charges in multiple states, ranging from domestic violence to weapons possession and drugs, he has the two open felony cases in Milwaukee.

Brooks sent the letters to two separate court officials just shy of two years apart, each time from a Wisconsin jail, as the total he owed in child support payments grew to reach more than $17,300, according to court records obtained by Fox News Digital. As of Nov. 16, 2021, Brooks owed $41,239.
