Community outraged after finding out a plea agreement is in the works for a Texas man who allegedly beat a 2-year-old boy.
Charles Brooks Jr., 30, was arrested for beating 2-year-old Blake Sampson to near-death in 2021. The little boy, who suffered a traumatic brain injury, will need 24-hour care for the rest of his life.
Brooks is charged with injury to a child with intent to cause severe bodily injury and serious mental deficiency or impairment. The first-degree felony carries a maximum sentence of 99 years or life in prison.
According to family and friends of 2-year-old Blake, Dallas County Prosecutors in the case informed them that there would not be a plea deal on the table for Brooks. However, a recent court document shows an announcement in the case scheduled on Thursday.
According to the legal document, Brooks may possibly take a plea agreement/offer and receive 55 years for the charge.
Prosecutors, District Attorneys, and Brooks’s lawyer will gather in court regarding the case Thursday morning at 9 a.m.
