    Philadelphia Man Convicted of Conspiracy to Commit Insurance Fraud - City Biz List Philadelphia

    In June 2002, while living in Baltimore, Brooks conspired with his cousin, Pierre Lamont Taylor to stage an armed robbery of Taylor for the purpose of making a false worker's compensation claim with Taylor's employer, United Parcel Service (UPS). On August 14, 2002, Taylor, while working for UPS in Montgomery County, was "robbed" by Brooks. Brooks and Taylor not only staged a "robbery," but Brooks also actually shot Taylor in his right leg.

    When sentencing Brooks, Judge Algeo said he has spent most of his working life as an attorney, a prosecutor and a judge and "this ranks as one of the dumbest things" he has seen anyone do.
