30 years for 2 DUI deaths

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:

19-year-old Brookhaven Resident Going to Prison for DUI Deaths of Two Brookhaven High Students 

Jackson, MS- Charles W. Acy, III, 19, of Brookhaven, has been sentenced for aggravated DUI, announced Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Acy was sentenced today by Warren County Judge Frank Vollor on two counts of Aggravated DUI resulting in death. Judge Vollor sentenced Acy to 25 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections, 15 to serve followed by 10 years to serve post-release supervision on each count. The sentences are to run consecutively with a total number of 30 years to serve.

On October 14, 2014, Acy had been seen driving erratically throughout the day in his 2003 Hummer HH2.  Later that evening, his vehicle collided head on with a Ford F150 in the 900 Block of Union Street in Brookhaven.  The F150 was driven by 18-year-olds Jevonte Dickey and Shaquan Richardson who were on their way home from a school sporting event. Both victims were pronounced dead. At the time of impact, residents on Union Street reported seeing Mr. Acy’s vehicle swerving from side to side and increasing his speed in excess of 70 miles per hour just seconds before the crash. Acy’s toxicology reports showed he was under the influence of Marijuana and Alprazolam at the time of the crash.

“Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims’ family,” said Attorney General Jim Hood.  “Hopefully this sentence will serve as a reminder to others, especially our youth, who decide to get behind the wheel when they are intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. Mississippi has penalties for underage drinking, drug abuse and possession of controlled substances. The results of making choices similar to this defendant’s not only messes up your life, but can also bring heartache and devastation to others.”

This case was investigated by Brookhaven Police Department Commander David Johnson and Attorney General Public Integrity Investigators Ronnie Odom and Jerry Spell.

Attorney General Hood concludes, “We greatly appreciate the hard work and support of the Brookhaven Police Department and Judge Vollor’s solid sentence.”

Prosecution of the case was handled by Special Assistant Attorneys General Jim Giddy and Larry Baker.

Wonder if he will get an Irby pardon. Oh wait. Barbour isn't governor anymore

Barbour pardons required dinero. Does the family have the green to excite Boss Hogg?

So, Brookhaven PD did the leg work, Warren County judge did the sentencing, and Jim Hood steps up to claim some kind of credit for the conviction? Election is over, Jimbo. What a prick.

The AG's office prosecuted the case is why he issued a statement.

AG's office prosecuted? What's wrong - the local DA isn't capable? Or is it like the other times Jimbo took over a case - had a high profile so he wanted his mug attached to it?

Local DA's office probably had a conflict. Usually when the AG's office takes over a case, the DA's office has a conflict.

Glad to see that this ended in a conviction.

That mugshot looks like Justin Beiber (if he were a tweaker). I wonder if he will enjoy giving Hummers instead of having a Hummer for the foreseeable future.

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.

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.
