Judge Kent McDaniel denied bond to Eddie Devine in Rankin County court today. Devine was arrested for carjacking a woman at knifepoint at Dogwood Festival on December 23, 2014. Judge Kent McDaniel told the 16 year-old:
|Devine third from right|
Mr. Devine, I'm blown away by your criminal activity at such a young age. I don't know what else could possibly be done in your life to rescue you. I hope somehow that might happen but that's not the business I'm in here today. My business is to assure you are here for court and protect the public. Based upon what Mr. Bilder has presented you are a, basically you just terrorized the public even though you are such a young man both in Hinds County and in Rankin County. I don't see any condition or combination of conditions that could possibly assure that you would not continue your life of crime. I think (Article III) Section 29 applies directly to you on point. I'm going to direct that you be held without bond and be bound over to the grand jury to indict or no bill....
A Hinds County grand jury indicted Devine in July 2013 for carjacking and again in October 2014 for eight counts of carjacking, armed robbery, assault, and other crimes. Earlier post with Devine's criminal record.
