DALLAS, Texas -- Charles Brooks Jr. is wanted on a warrant out of Dallas County for cutting off his ankle monitor, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Brooks' location is unknown.
Brooks is from Atlanta, Texas, and also has a residence in Dallas. He was arrested in May 2021 on a charge of injury to a child with intent to cause severe bodily injury and serious mental deficiency or impairment, according to law enforcement.
The charge is a first-degree felony punishable by a maximum sentence of 99 years or life in prison and/or a maximum fine of $10,000. He was released on bail from the Dallas County jail but required to wear an ankle monitor.
Brooks allegedly cut his ankle monitor off on Jan.11 and a no-bond warrant was issued the same day, said a spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office.
Brooks' stepson, Blake Sampson, 3, remains hospitalized for a serious head injury and brain bleed. Blake's mother, Madison Ball, is a Texarkana resident. Blake was taken to a Dallas hospital on April 22. Brooks was arrested shortly after in connection with Blake's injuries.
