The trial for Tommy Young was postponed from today until May 18, 2015 by Judge Bill Gowan. The continuance was granted since Mr. Young claimed he got a new attorney and needed more time to prepare for trial. He is now represented by Faye Peterson. His previous barrister was Dennis Sweet, IV. Mr. Young faces eight counts of armed robbery, carjacking, and aggravated assault. This is the second time his trial has been postponed. He was indicted in March 2013. Judge Gowan revoked his bond on December 12, 2014 after he did not appear for a hearing in court.
JJ reported in December:
You may remember this little manhunt back in 2013:
The little thugs hit a house in Northeast Jackson, led the police on a high-speed chase, and then were caught by the Pearl River. Hinds County Judge Houston Patton did his job and refused to set bond for Mr. Tommy Young. He sat in jail for over a year and a half. He is scheduled to go to trial on February 2 and is the subject of a three indictments ( see documents posted below). He is represented by Dennis Sweet, IV.
