Tommy Young gets 15 years

His badness
Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan sentenced Tommy Young, Jr.  to serve 15 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to eight counts of armed robbery, simple carjacking, simple robbery, and armed carjacking.  Young is nearly 20 years old.  Young and his cohorts went on a carjacking and robbery spree in Northeast Jackson back in 2013.  JPD Chief Lee Vance told JJ that Young is an "impact player" among local criminals and that police can tell when he is free by the crime stats.  Young and his crew weren't too smart during their little field trip of crime that day as police pursued them on a high speed chase. The Young gang crashed their car at the stack and ran into the woods by the Pearl River Levee.  Law enforcement officials from both Rankin and Hinds counties continued the chase and caught them in the woods on foot.  WLBT's Skycopter 3 showed video of of their capture:

 Judge Gowan meted out the following sentences to the little thug:

Simple Robbery: 15 years in prison.
Simple Carjacking: 15 years in prison.
Gun Armed Carjacking: 15 years in prison
Gun Armed Carjacking: 25 years in prison with ten years suspended.
Gun Armed Robbery: 25 years in prison with ten years suspended.
Gun Armed Robbery: 15 years in prison.
Simple Robbery: 15 years in prison.
Simple Robbery: 15 years in prison.

All sentences are to run concurrently. Judge Gowan also gave Young credit for time served and imposed an additional sentence of supervised probation for five years as well.  Judge Gowan remanded four other charges as part of the plea agreement.

So all that equals 15 years? or 15 x 8?

15 years?? That's it? He will never even serve the full 15 years. His sentence does not fit his crime or CRIMES rather. I know young men that committed NON-VIOLENT crimes in Madison county and they received much longer consecutive sentences. How can Madison and Rankin county judges get away with OVER-SENTENCING, putting people away for 20+ years and yet Hinds county under-sentences thugs like Young??

Sorry the cops didn't kill them. Can I say that? Actually, I don't give a flying you know what.

At least it's something. With the current DA any jail time is a win

Hinds County ... A World of Difference!

At least he's off the streets for a few years. That, along with Whole Foods makes Jackson a safer place to live

Armed robbery, while not what the statute says, is served day for day. So the Hinds DA was able to net 15 years, day for day, for multiple counts without the necessity and expense of a trial? In Hinds County. And ya'll are complaining? And this is coming from someone who isn't a fan of Robert Smith, but you have to be realistic. Hinds isn't Rankin, where every arrest means they are guilty and they must go to jail forever. (The irony of the home of the "small government" "I'm taxed too much already" crowd crowing about decades long, at 30k+ a year,sentences is not lost on most).

I don't get folks on here. They complain when nothing is done and then complain when something is done. And, at least I hope its only one, the same idiot brings up Whole Foods in post after post, thinking they are funny or intelligent. You aren't.

Eight Counts. Fifteen years? Why not 45 years. This punk-ass-shit-head will be back among you Jacktown whiners within ten years.

Hopefully, someone will kill him in prison.

When he experiences some Parchman "man love” . . . he’ll probably wish he was dead.

You people honestly believe prison is that bad for people like this? If you're from a certain culture than prison is merely like their college education. I doubt he'll recieve any 'man love'. He probably already has a click on the inside waiting on him. He will just reappear in fifteen years as a more educated, skilled criminal. This is why I teach my children to avoid people that look like this at all costs.

6:49 am Don't help your children with spelling. It's " clique" not " click".

He may have gang protection but remember there are rival gangs. And, his IQ will not improve. One has to be educable to get any sort of education.

He will probably try to pick up where he left off and he'll be caught again because his is stupid.

7:44 and 7:51 (same) must drive his Prius to Whole Foods on a regular basis. Probably looooves that Whole Foods buffet (simply awesome) and most likely thinks it's cool to refer to Mississippi as "the 'sip". So, slip off your Birkenstocks, continue telling yourself how much smarter than everyone else you are, and get back to working on tomorrow's lesson plan.

Yeah, 7:51, no point in going to Whole Foods buffet since you can belly up to the "all you care to eat" buffet at Shoneys (or similar chain) and then drive your big ass pick up home.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
