Case sours more for Too Sweet

Judge Melvin Priester, Sr. set bond at $100,000 for Robert "Too Sweet" Henderson.  Henderson was arrested Friday on two counts of conspiracy to bribe a public official.  Henderson was pardoned by Governor Haley Barbour in 2012 for several convictions of cocaine possession and receiving stolen property. 

Kingfish note: That was the news, now for the opinion.  It is this website's opinion that the bond is excessive.  Either a pardon means something or it doesn't.  The alleged crime is non-violent in nature.  Henderson is known to a large segment of the community.  Bond is meant to ensure someone appears in court and protect society from a probable threat of danger.  Perhaps Henderson should have claimed he was pregnant since the judge sets low bonds for capital murder suspects who do so.  $1,000 for capital murder, $100,000 for bribery.  Makes perfect sense.

The pardon means something, but the individuals conduct since the pardon indicates he hasn't changed his habits. The pardon doesn't erase his past, just forgives it - and in this case like 200 others, it was after they had served their time in the pokey for their crimes.

Bond not excessive when it relates to such a high profile case as this. Would be easy for Two Sweet to be absent from the area while his protector is going down the tubes.

Evidently the judge knows more about this case than you and I.could it be that this is tied to the DA, former ADA, former DA Peters and a whole host of other courthouse, law enforcement and legal community crooks? Let's let it play out. Much more to come.

Bond is probably set high as Judge Priester probably knows a lot more about it than sideline quarterback blog wannabes.

this just proves that Haley BaBa made huge mistakes in granting all those pardons, specifically this one. this is a two-bit criminal that needs to be in jail. meanwhile, his conspirator was allowed, by a federal judge, to keep his passport to go to Jamaica for a honeymoon. that former ADA also needs to be in jail as he acted as an officer of the Court, and 2 was a known criminal...

@1:54 - Haley BaBa did not release this two bit criminal from jail. He didn't serve time for most of his arrests, and had completed his sentences for those that he did time. You can't blame his being on the street on Haley BaBa. Now as to the ADA who he bribed, or the DA that he was in bed with - that's another story.

"The pardon doesn't erase his past, just forgives it"

Miss. R. Evid. 609(c)

Effect of Pardon, Annulment, Expungement or Certificate of Rehabilitation.
Evidence of a conviction is not admissible under this rule if (1) the conviction has been the subject of a pardon, annulment, expungement, certificate of rehabilitation, or other equivalent procedure based on a finding of the rehabilitation of the person convicted, and that person has not been convicted of a subsequent crime which was punishable by death or imprisonment in excess of one year, or (2) the conviction has been the subject of a pardon, annulment, or other equivalent procedure based on a finding of innocence.

If his past conviction is being used to determine his bond (which, given the publically known facts of the case, it would appear so), then the bond seems unreasonable.

@1:54 The federal judge probably allowed him to keep his passport because he is cooperating and the U.S. Attorney's office is in agreement because he is cooperating.

If nothing else, Kingfish's blog has served to put attorneys, judges, elected officials and an assortment of other trough-feeders that they are being watched and their actions will be spread across the internet.

Time was those pricks and elected hoodlums (also pricks) could do whatever the hell they wanted to do, without recourse or being spotlighted. That day is gone.

I'm confused, the Clarion Ledgerand news indicated that bond was set at $10,000 for Too Sweet by Judge Sutton. How did Judge Priester get in it????

So how much did Neely get for Sweets pardon?

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.
