Things go sour for Too Sweet (Update #2)

 Correction: JJ got one fact wrong.  The Robert Shuler Smith campaign paid Henderson $1,100 in May and June of 2015 for "consulting".  However, Henderson was not the campaign manager.   If JJ gets it wrong, it admits it and puts it at the top of the page.  The post has been changed to reflect the correct information. 

Updates: posted at end of story.  


Robert "Too Sweet" Henderson, Jr. was arrested yesterday for two counts of conspiracy to bribe a public official and is currently a tenant at the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond.:



Too Sweet was one of Frank's boys back in the day.   Too Sweet was paid $1,100 for consulting services by Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith's campaign last year.*  He was pardoned by Governor Barbour.  Here is the criminal record for our pardoned drug dealer:

 2/27/97: Violation of Probation, Contempt of Court, Disorderly Conduct
7/10/96: Possession of C/S (controlled substance)
11/10/95: Possession of cocaine, contempt of court
5/26/92: Receiving stolen property
3/2/92: Receiving stolen property
9/6/91: Possession of cocaine
3/18/91: Auto theft
1/15/91: Possession of cocaine
9/20/90: Possession of cocaine


 Too Sweet has the following convictions:

Three years for possession of cocaine with intent. Pled guilty on 5/26/92. Indictment #92-1-090-00.
Three years for possession of cocaine. Two years was suspended. 3 years probation. Pleaded guilty on 11/21/97. Probation ended in 2002. Was fined $2,000.
One year for receiving stolen property. Sentenced on 12/5/97.


His MDOC ID Number was 98630.


Kingfish note: Hmm..... now who just pleaded guilty to bribery, worked for the District Attorney, and  admitted to working with an unnamed co-conspirator? 

Update (8/1/2016): Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release: 


Jackson Man Arrested for Conspiracy and Bribery of Public Official
Jackson, Miss.- Attorney General Jim Hood announced today that a Jackson man was arrested Friday for bribery of a public official and conspiracy following a joint investigation by the Attorney General’s Office and the FBI.

 

Robert Henderson, 44, is accused of offering a former Hinds County assistant district attorney $500 in exchange for dismissal of charges against three criminal defendants. Henderson is charged with one count of bribery of a public official and one count of conspiracy to bribe a public official. Henderson was booked into the Hinds County Jail. Hinds County Justice Court Judge Frank Sutton set Henderson's bond at $5,000 for bribery of a public official and $5,000 for conspiracy for a total of $10,000.

 

Henderson is alleged to have offered the bribe to then-Hinds County Assistant DA Ivon Johnson on or about  June 15 of this year. Henderson is accused of seeking Johnson’s assistance in having cases dismissed involving three criminal defendants.

 
As with all cases, a charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Update (8/3/2016): The bond order is posted below.  The Hinds County Public Defender's office recused itself from representing Henderson since some of the criminal defendants accused of paying bribes were represented by the same office.

It appears that the chickens are coming home to roost.

Seems to me he was running a campaign for former Councilman Fran Bluntson and drove a big SUV with Madison County Plate. Am I mis-remembering?

Thanks, Haley! You always did what's best for Mississippi.

Bubba, Bobo, and "Big" Mo can't wait for Too Sweet to get to the big house.

Is this the same Robert Henderson who has the "What's Really Going On" radio show on Friday nights on 90.1?

I cant believe Haly<s friend Trent is not in jail!

Too Sweet is a great guy..

Is there a link for managing Shuler-Smith's campaign?

The mention in the post just takes me to a list of Barbour's pardonees.

@4:17

He sure is if you are looking to get bribed

Anonymous said...

So let's try and do a chronology, Smith gets arrested for helping criminal defendants, one of his prosecutors pleads guilty to accepting bribes to help criminal defendants and now his campaign manager is arrested for bribing a public official (I assume to help criminal defendants). Anyone else see a pattern here??

Oh yeah, 4:35. The fat lady ain't even humming yet.

Ox Tails said...

Anybody have a decent explanation as to why Haley would pardon this man? I mean, really.

Do you mean "Delta Kilo?"

6:29, maybe the pardon involved a payoff. That's the only way to explain a lot of Barbour's pardons.

Haley could care less what you think of him. He sucking suds with the high rollers.

Is That WHY Barbour didn't pardon the Scott Sister?

Anonymous said...

I normally read this blog and don't comment. However, Kingfish you have the facts wrong. Too Sweet was not Robert Smith's campaign manager. Smith's family have always managed his campaign. To my knowledge Too Sweet only knocked on doors and put out yard signs like many other Robert Smith supporters. I'm proud to say that I am one of those DA Robert Smith supporters.

Anonymous said...

9:27, you might think before admitting you are a supporter of the DA. It doesn't say much for your judgement or morals.

Anonymous said...

@9:27

Too Sweet was up at the DA's office everyday. I work at the courthouse and saw him all the time.

Anonymous said...

Haley had a guy contacting people and giving them an amount for pardons. How do I know? I know a guy who was contacted. After spending months trying to get a pardon for a constituent, this guy gets contacted, is given an amount. My friend asks the guy who is seeking the pardon if he wanted to do it. The guy said no way.

Anonymous said...

9:55, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Haley was for sale to the highest bidder. Name a politician that isn't. If you can come up with a single name that would be the real surprise.

Anonymous said...

Guess he won't make his nephew's accused killer's trial, which should be coming up in the next few weeks. That is, unless Robert Smith's troubles screw the trial schedule up.

Anonymous said...

@9:55 - if you 'really' have such facts then you should turn them over to the fibbies. But of course, you don't have any facts, just some bar talk you and others supposed. I'm calling b/s on your claim.

Anonymous said...

Do people think calling a bs on some remark is worth the time it takes to post it? It might be bs or it could be that you don't know what the conversation is about. How about people who think something is bs show how they came to that conclusion?

Anonymous said...

12:40 what a brilliant idea. Dare I say, genius! And there it was, he saw it ripening on the tree, he plucked the idea from the branch of knowledge. He held it up for all to see. He felt power with his prize. He spoke but no words came out. He was ashamed. Lol. Of course someone was contacted. This is he most corrupt state in the country, or haven't you heard?

Anonymous said...

Calling bs on an libelous accusation is worth every bit as much for the time it takes to post it - and worth much more than a comment such as 2:26's that assumes every politician is a crook and taking bribes for their actions. If someone has knowledge of such a bribe, they should take action to do something about it, not just throw the crap against the wall on a blogsite.

And Whores In Hotel Rooms said...

Assuming for a moment that Haley is every bit as crooked, devious, stupid, evil and tainted as some of you suggest...just how damned stupid do you fools think a man would have to be to 'sell' pardons in that manner today?

You've obviously read too much Louisiana Politics Fiction.

All acceptable forms of rebuttal here on JJ.🙈

4:40, if you will notice there have been several politicians that people have taken action and tried to do something about it. Please check out all of the times people have reported one politician that is now running for president. Count the number of law suits and investigations. Then look at what happened.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
