Andre Brown sentenced to 35 years in prison for Anisa Scott killing, attempted homicide
MADISON, Wis. — Andre Brown, who was charged in connection with a 2020 shooting that killed 11-year-old Anisa Scott, was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Monday.
Brown, 18, was sentenced to 25 years in prison and 15 years of extended supervision Monday in Scott’s death. He was also sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision in the attempted homicide of Christopher Carthens. The sentences will be served consecutively.
Brown pled guilty to an amended charge of first-degree reckless homicide as a party to a crime and one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide as a party to a crime during a hearing earlier this year. He had initially been charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide as party to a crime and one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide as a party to a crime.
Scott was shot in the head while sitting in the passenger seat of a car that was shot multiple times. Carthens was in the car at the time of the shooting. Brown was identified as a suspect after a man at a local shooting range reportedly heard him say “what we did on East Washington already made the news.” a criminal complaint alleged.
“You’ve shown an inability to control yourself,” Judge Julie Genovese said.
Two other men, Jerry Ward and Perion Carreon, were also charged in connection with the shooting.
