Anton Brooks, 19, was in the 14A-1 District Court Tuesday for a preliminary exam on charges of possession of less than 25 grams of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended license. District Judge J. Cedric Simpson adjourned that case to match up with the preliminary exam in the shooting case.
Brooks will face preliminary exams for both cases at 8:30 a.m. July 3. He’s currently lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $500,000 bond, according to court records.
Brooks is facing five felony charges stemming from a May 30 incident in Superior Township when he allegedly shot a man who he had been feuding with in the jaw.
That incident was linked with a shooting the previous night in Ypsilanti Township, according to sheriff’s office officials. No charges have been filed in that case.
Simpson also requested the Washtenaw County Public Defender's Office's motion to withdraw from the possession and driving with a suspended case due to a conflict of interest. Steven Tramontin represents Brooks in the shooting case.
