Raymond Ethan Thomas is appealing a domestic abuse protection order issued against him in April in Madison County. Madison County Court Judge Marsha Weems Stacey issued the order after Thomas was charged with witness intimidation and larceny-trespass after he went onto his wife's property and took her two golden retrievers. He is currently free on bond. Mrs. Thomas filed for divorce against Mr. Thomas in March. Mr. Thomas has several past scrapes with the law. A status conference on the appeal is scheduled for June 15. Mr. Thomas submitted the file and record to the court under seal. JJ reported in April:
Mr. Thomas was arrested earlier this year in Alabama for purchasing ATVs and a Rolex watch with forged checks. He also attempted to buy a $10,000 mattress and furniture under false pretenses as well. He is free from the Alabama charges on a $580,000 bond.
Mr. Thomas is quite well known to JJ readers. His first brush with the law was in college. He was a Senatobia cop while he attended Mississippi State. He was kicked out of a fraternity and denied reinstatement by a student committee. He planted drugs in the vehicle of the committee chairman and had him arrested. Mr. Thomas was sentenced to a little over a year in jail. Earlier post about MSU drug-plantin'.
Mr. Thomas was arrested in 2011 for impersonating a federal officer. Prosecutors reduced the felony charge to that of a misdemeanor, tampering with a government record. Read the affidavit in this post. Its highly entertaining to read. He was sentenced to 120 months in prison and given credit for time served (a little over two months). However, Carol Robinson of Al.com wrote perhaps the best description of Mr. Thomas in a 2015 story:
Raymond Ethan Thomas is not who he appears to be. Ever....She also reported in the same story:
Authorities say Thomas, a husband and father, is a career criminal, but those who know him say he suffers from mental issues. Thomas was released from the county jail on Wednesday after posting $580,000 bond. "He has bonded out where he will be able to receive the necessary treatment that he needs, which is not available in the Jefferson County Jail,'' said Birmingham attorney Tommy Spina. (Mr. Spina, you might want to find him a different nuthouse.). Rest of article.
Madison County Chancellor Robert Clark III also signed a restraining order against Mr. Thomas in Madison County chancery court in the divorce case, but an appeal has yet to be filed on that order.
