DIRTBAG ROUNDUP: Career criminal Corey Michael Brooks bought himself a flight on AirMSP to a trauma resort

COREY MICHAEL BROOKS WAS ADMINISTERED NARCAN (naloxone) on the scene prior to being flown to a trauma center, according to St. Mary’s Sheriff Patrol Division Captain David Yingling. Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist—meaning that it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioid pain medications.

Brooks was also cited for doing a cool 74 mph in a 4 mph speed zone near the Park Hall Post Office.
  • Corey Michael Brooks failed to appear for trial on Dec. 17, 2019. On March 3, 2020, with a taxpayer-provided free attorney working a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz, Brooks entered a guilty plea. THE DEAL: Brooks was sentenced to ten days in jail with all of the jail time suspended and put on probation for 18 months.  Brooks also entered a guilty plea to the speeding charge and was fined $100.50 which is listed as deferred. Fritz dropped a charge placed against Brooks for failing to attend the Driver’s Improvement Program as apparently there is no hope of ever improving the driving skills of this DIP dropout, as evidenced by his head-on crash on May 25, 2020.
  • Corey Michael Brooks was operating the same Ford Fiesta on Rt. 235 at the First Colony Blvd. intersection on Oct. 4, 2019, at 12:42 am when he was stopped by Maryland State Trooper Eric Evans and cited for various traffic offenses including not having a driver’s permit due to a prior conviction and failing to attend DIP class for dipsticks.  IN a plea deal on Jan. 1, 2020 in St. Mary’s District Court, Brooks entered a guilty plea.

  • Corey Michael Brooks still have an active speeding case pending in Prince Georges County, Md., where he was stopped by Maryland State Police Cpl. D. Davis as he zoomed on the DC Beltway at 77 mph while northbound on Rt. 50 on April 19, 2019 at 5:45 am.

On April 25, 2014, Sheriff’s Office Patrol units responded to the report of a burglary to a private residence in Clements, Maryland.  Deputies determined suspect(s) forced entry into the residence and multiple firearms were stolen.  Further investigation revealed another theft had occurred previously at the same residence.  The case was forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) for investigation.
  • Corey Michael Brooks Sr. entered a guilty plea to DWI on Jan. 24, 2008 in St. Mary’s District Court after his arrest by Maryland State Trooper L. Nims. Brooks was operating a 2007 Honda northbound on Rt. 235 at Beck Road when he was busted.

  • Conspiracy / Burglary – First Degree (2 counts)
  • Conspiracy / Theft: $1,000 to Under $10,000 (2 counts)

    On March 2, 2015 in St. Mary’s Circuit Court, Montana Dorsel Knight pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary and was sentenced a mere thirty days in the Hotel St. Mary’s. The other charges were dropped as a result of a plea deal with St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz.

Montana D. Knight

Louis Eugene Messineo Jr., 45, (DOB 01/03/1995) of 9026 Holly Ave., Waldorf, Md., was charged with:

  • Burglary – First Degree (2 counts)
  • Theft: $1,000 to Under $10,000 (2 counts)
  • Conspiracy / Burglary – First Degree (2 counts)
  • Conspiracy / Theft $1,000 to Under $10,000 (2 counts)

In St. Mary’s Circuit Court on Oct. 18, 2015, Messineo entered guilty pleas to two counts of first-degree burglary in a deal with States Attorney Fritz. THE DEAL: Messineo was sentenced to twenty years in prison with all but twelve years suspended.  Based on his subsequent criminal record, it is clear that being in the Alice in Wonderland Maryland Judiciary World allowed Messineo to be sprung from prison a lot sooner than before twelve years had passed.  Maryland Judges can and do modify sentences of convicted burglars without any notice to the public or to victims of his crimes in spite of various crime reforms enacted for the benefit of victims. This is why burglars should be shot dead inside of a premises by a victim.

 In Charles County Circuit Court on indictments issued by the Charles County Grand Jury on July 9, 2018, of theft, conspiracy to commit a scheme of theft, Messineo entered a guilty plea in a plea deal with States Attorney Covington. THE DEAL: Messineo was sentenced to five years in prison with all of the jail time suspended.

In Calvert County Circuit Court, on indictments of dealing drugs such as heroin, Messineo entered an Alford Plea on July 28, 2016 with Calvert States Attorney Laura Martin and picked up stay in Calvert County Jail of eighteen months.
