House arrest.

Here is footage from the Irby bond revocation hearing in Madison earlier this week (WLBT video). I think it was the right call. Anyone that knows Stuart Irby knows his brain is not "all there" and he is suffering from brain damage of some sort. House arrest is probably the best punishment for him right now. I've seen him out in public as many of you have and even though he can drive, walk, and talk, we can all pretty much agree he is not the same person he was before the wreck and probably never will be. He did blow off a Judge's order and any time you do that and get caught, don't be surprised if the Judge hammers you for it.

An appearance bond isn't supposed to be punishment, it's to ensure the accused's appearance in court for his trial. I thought Irby's original bond on the cyberstalking charge was unreasonable, containing conditions more akin to a probation order than to an appearance bond. So he violated the conditions of the bond, which in my judgment had no business being there in the first place. Is he likely to show up for the trial of the cyberstalking charge? Of course he is. So why imprison him (even at home) when he hasn't been indicted, much less convicted, of the charges?

I just wasted 4 minutes of my life listening to Danks ramble on and on and on and on and on and on...
I forgot what I was watching after awhile after listening to him ramble on and on and on and on and on....He is worse at speaking than George W.
That makes me want to drink after listening to him go on and on get the point

Jackson's Hero...You people make me sick! The only way he is under house arrest is because he paided off the judge. Justice is for sale in City of Madison. Dale Danks need to go back to Jackson and stay there. We got enough crupt offical here in Madison County.

So you are saying that we ought to go easy on a proven liar, pervert, gin soaked piece of trash, poor husband and father and a arrogant bully all his life. His supposed "brain damage" sounds like a concocted lawyer trick to get his client off the hook. This would make a good movie. I "ain't the same either after reaching 73 years old but that does not give me the right to be a perverted clown.

House arrest. Did they take away his computer access, too? He emailed his victim hours after getting out of jail on the cyberstalking charge. If they did not take away his computer access, house arrest is a joke.

He needs to be in jail.

Well, Stuart's probably going to find himself in a Lindsey Lohan-type spiral where failure to abide by the court's order gets him in more trouble than the orignal offense. I wonder if he's having to wear one of those alcohol-monitoring SCRAM anklets?

At least Lohan has a great rack!

Per WJTV website dated March 23:

Jackson businessman Stuart Irby continues to make news. Wednesday a judge granted his request to have his brother take over his personal affairs.

Irby claims he's incapable of taking care of himself because of the injuries he suffered in that deadly crash two years ago that sent his wife to prison.

A Hinds county chancery judge has appointed Irby's brother Charles as his temporary conservator.

That means he will be in charge of seeing after Irby's personal needs and managing his property.

Stuart Irby's attorney says he has not responded well to treatments for his brain injury.

Next week a judge could decide whether to name Irby's brother as his permanent conservator.

Yesterday, Irby was sentenced to house arrest for violating terms of his bond on a cyber-stalking charge in Madison.

Irby is required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet around the clock and he must also pay the $360.00 monthly cost of the device.

Cry me a river. Why are we, the citizens, going to have to put up with his behavior? Clearly his friends in high places won't do a thing to curb his antics in the slightest.

Kingfish said...

I've got copies of the papers. I'll upload when I get a chance.

I Like Dale Danks but wonder if and I am sure he did receive money from the Irby's when he ran for office. If he did it seems he should have let another judge handle the case.

Danks is an idiot.

all rise the honorable dale danks preciding... LONG LIVE THE KING. Best mayor jack-u-stan ever had. (sorry had to use it at at least once)

J. Kev said...

Irby's basically a retard after the wreck. The conservatorship was the right thing.

But Dale Danks. Geezum. I get to listen to a lot of judges, but I've never been before one who loves the sound of his own voice so much.

About a month ago, I was waiting to talk to the city prosecutor, and Danks was rambling because some criminal defendant had failed to appear.

He prefaced about three long paragraphs with "Let the record reflect..."

Guess what, you pompous douche: there's NO RECORD in municipal court. Look around; do you see a court reporter? No? Then there's no effing record.

Soooooo sanctimonious.

Anonymous said...

11:31 I'm fortunate in that I don't have to listen to judges on a regular basis in my career. From my lay perspective of the law profession, I thought Danks was a pompous ass, douche as well. Thanks for the professional perspective!! LOL!

Reminds of the TV footage of Dale Danks showing up at the George Bell standoff.

Curt Crowley said...

The suggestion that Judge Danks did something improper or was "paided and crupt" is asinine. He's one of those judges that I would put in the category of "uncorruptable." He's also one of the better municipal court judges I've encountered, simply because he's fair and knows the law.

The initial bond and conditions were tougher than we see in most serious, *legitimate* felony cases, especially the alcohol restriction. There is no special treatment here.

I know lots of folks don't like Irby, but that's no reason to advocate the misuse and bastardization of bond, or to make ridiculous allegations against Judge Danks.

Curt Crowley said...

JKev, I wasn't there, so the following is pure speculation on my part. I've noticed other municipal and justice court judges mention putting something in "the record." This is usually a cue for the clerk to put it in the abstract or write it in the court file. That can come in real handy 6 months and 500 cases later, when nobody remembers what the hell happened last time.

Again it's just speculation on my part, but this could be an alternative explanation for the Judge's statement.

Anonymous said...

Exactly, 8:44. Think or say whatever you will about him, whether you like him or not doesn't matter to me, but Judge Danks does know the law, and he knows what he is doing. It really is ridiculous to insinuate that he would handle this case in any other way but fair.

J. Kev said...


Yours is a plausible explanation. Sadly, it doesn't apply here.

To clarify, he prefaced several long solilloquies with the phrase. He'd say "let the record reflect," then spout several sentences.....(long pause, looking around the courtroom)....."Let the record further reflect," talk talk talk, etc.

He could have just said, "Issue a bench warrant." Trust me.

"let the record reflect" is the video recorder. His next chances to be the Mayor of Madison. Look out Mary!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
