Was accused killer free due to a case of mistaken parole?

 Accused killer Marcus Mallett was released from prison on November 21, 2014 due to a grant of parole.  He was convicted in Madison County on August 3, 2011 of several felonies and sentenced to serve 12 years in prison.  He was later indicted in Hinds County for escape and several charges of auto burglary.  Clinton PD issued a "detainer" on Mallett.  Clinton PD withdrew the detainer on November 13, 2014 as he had served his short sentence.  However, records show the Parole Board was not aware of the withdrawal nor that it was related to the expired sentence and released Mallett- thinking he was going to stay in the criminal justice system.  JPD charged him with allegedly killing 21 year-old Shanitra Ramsey on February 5.  JPD also charged him for shooting Ramsey's friend several times as he fled the scene. .

A Madison County grand jury indicted Mallett on December 17, 2010 for auto burglary and identity theft.  He was accused of breaking into a car and using a stolen credit card.   He pleaded guilty and received a sentence of twelve years in prison, five years of supervised probation, and various fees for restitution and court costs.  Judge Emfinger didn't play.   Mallett has an extensive criminal history as shown  on page 14 in the third collection of documents posted below.*

The Parole Board met and decided on April 8, 2014 to grant him parole to detainer (Clinton PD had placed a "hold" on Mallett several years earlier.).  See page 1 in the third collection of documents posted below.  The documents states "PTD" i.3. "Parole to Detainer".  Thus the Parole Board thought he was going back to Clinton PD and the Hinds County criminal justice system instead of the streets.  The Parole Board stated to JJ:

 The Parole Board has instituted a corrective measure to require all Parole To Detainer decisions of the Parole Board will have a Parole Board Hold to have to go back thru all Parole Procedures including address check and Notice to Victims - Courts - DAs and Sheriffs once a Detainer has been adjudicated

When a Parole Eligible inmate has a detainer on file, we have the expectation that the person in question will be prosecuted which with new time would change his/her elgibility date.

A Hinds County Grand Jury indicted Mallett on August 31, 2011 for  one count of escape and
three counts of auto burglary.  The crimes were committed in April 2011.  Judge Gowan denied him bond.  Attorney June Hardwick represented Mallett.  The case was reassigned to Judge Winston Kidd.   Mallett was convicted of the charges on June 7, 2012.  Judge Kidd sentenced him to serve a 5 year prison sentence but suspended three years and ordered him to serve two years concurrently with the Madison County prison sentence.  The sentence thus expired last summer.

 However, Clinton PD withdrew the detainer on November 13, 2014 (See the second batch of documents posted below and faxed the notice to MDOC after Ms. Hardwick notified the department that the detainer was still in place.  MDOC confirmed receipt of the fax and entered the new information in its computer system.  However, the updated information on the detainer did not appear in the Parole Board's records. Mallett was thus released to the streets instead of law enforcement.

 *Mallett was also indicted and convicted in 2008 for two counts auto burglary.  Special Circuit Judge Breland Hilburn sentenced him to serve five years in prison but suspended three years of the sentence. 

 Kingfish note: One count of auto burglary: 12 years.  Three counts: two years.  Thank you, Judge Kidd.   Mallett had already been sent to prison twice for numerous felonies when he finally appeared in your courtroom for judgment.  Two years.  Someone might be alive today if the judge had taken his sentencing  job seriously.

What took place was similar to what took place in the Eddie Devine case.  Computers not talking to each other and criminals who should have stayed behind bars are instead back on the streets literally rape, pillage, and plunder at will.

This cannot be emphasized enough. Please keep reporting on the ridiculous sentencing disparity coming out of Hinds County. Where is the Clarion Ledger? Afraid to piss of Judge Green and Judge Kidd?

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.
