Perv gets 40 years

Rankin-Madison District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following press release:

Man Receives 40-Year Sentence for Sexual Battery involving a 4-Year Old Girl

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that Tawarius Donta Sanders was sentenced to serve 40 years for sexual battery involving a 4-year old girl.  Sanders will be required to serve twenty years of the sentence without the possibility of probation, parole or early release.  The last twenty years of his sentence will be suspended and he will also have to register as a sex offender.  Upon his release he will be on supervised probation for five years.

On December 29, 2012, the Canton Police Department was contacted by the Madison River Oaks Hospital regarding a four year child girl, who was a victim of sexual assault.  The mother of the child informed law enforcement that her daughter had been to Sanders’ home and when she returned confided in her mother what had occurred.  After learning of the abuse the mother immediately sought medical help for her child. 

The Canton Police Department was able to obtain text messages sent by Sanders that verified the information received by the child’s mother. Sanders was arrested and made a statement to law enforcement that he had inappropriately touched the child. 

Law enforcement also collected a rape kit of the child at the hospital.  The rape kit was submitted to the Mississippi State Crime Laboratory for testing.  The initial tests showed that the rape kit contained bodily fluids that were determined to be semen.  Subsequent tests showed that Sanders DNA was present and confirmed that Sanders had sexually assaulted the little girl.

Guest stated, “While the District Attorney’s Office does not release the name of victims that have been sexually assaulted, it is important to continue sending the message that we will protect our children from predators like Sanders.  Sanders has now been removed from our community and sent to prison where he will be unable to harm another child.”

Guest concluded, “The Canton Police Department and the Mississippi State Crime Laboratory did an outstanding job of investigating this case and obtaining the hard evidence we needed to prosecute and convict Sanders.  Without their hard work Sanders would still be walking the streets and exposing our children to harm.”

District Attorney Michael Guest was sworn into office in January 2008 and represents the Twentieth Judicial District, Madison and Rankin Counties.  For more information regarding the District Attorney’s office, please visit


Name:                          Tawarus Donta Sanders
Address:                      411 McKinley Street
Date of Birth:               8/24/86            

Kingfish note: Compare this case to Tomie Green, who illegally suspends five years from a man who molests his own daughter.

The son of a bitch should be castrated with a rusty dull butcher knife AND serve the full 40 years with NO parole.

Not that it will do the poor little one any good, but I feel that in the jailhouse,"justice will be served"---right up his sorry hiney. I hope the prison guards just look the other way...

what Green did was not illegal. a judge can suspend minimum sentences unless the statute setting the minimum includes language that said sentence shall not be suspended, what we call "mandatory minimums". what Green did was horrible, but not illegal.

12:20, guest's defendant must serve the sentence without parole, which is not the same thing as suspended time.

Nice try, Poetry. The maximum sentence could have been life for that charge. She had no authority to suspend any part of the sentence.

agree 100% with 12:20 and will happily offer to do the deed.

wrong. sadly, she didn't give life. you can't suspend time when life is the ONLY sentence option, such as murder. there were, obviously, other sentencing options. Poetry??

Kingfish said...

The statute says the maximum has to be life, not that life is the only option.

No Poetry Here said...

Breaking: The legal community will be stunned to learn that Kingfish decrees judges have no authority to suspend sentences.

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.
