Senate President Pro Tempore Dave Sokola’s statement on verdict in Sen. Darius Brown’s case

January 6, 2022

Delaware Senate President Pro Tempore Dave Sokola issued the following statement on Thursday regarding Sen. Darius Brown:

“Sen. Darius Brown was acquitted today by a jury who thoroughly reviewed the evidence in his criminal case.

What remains clear, however, is that Sen. Brown has been involved in multiple confrontations in public spaces over the last year, regardless of whether that behavior rose to the level of criminal conduct.

As elected representatives of the people we serve, I believe we owe it to Delawareans to hold ourselves to a higher level of accountability and conduct. In the coming weeks, the Senate Rules and Ethics Committee will fully review all of the allegations leveled against Sen. Brown, and I will have no further comment on the matter until that time.”
