Stevie Turner & Eric Taylor get some non-Hinds County justice.

Young Stephen Turner got a dose of Madison County justice last week.  Circuit Judge Bill Chapman sentenced him to fifteen years in prison but suspended ten years after Turner pleaded guilty to house burglary.  Turner will probably be released after he serves 2 1/2 years of his sentence. Turner has been a very busy little criminal since he turned 18 years old.

Turner was released from the Hinds County Youth Detention Center when he turned 18 on December 2, 2018.  Turner managed to get arrested for three different crimes in Madison and Hinds counties within six months.  Jackson police arrested him in December 2015 for house burglary and possessing a stolen firearm.  Turner spent a few weeks in jail before he posted bond and went back to his wayward ways although a grand jury indicted him in February for the December charges.  He hit for the cycle in June when he was arrested in Hinds County for auto burglary, auto theft, and house burglary.  Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd revoked his bond in July because of the June arrest.  A grand jury indicted him in September for the June charges.  Thus Turner still faces two separate indictments in Hinds County.

JJ reported in December:

To put it mildly, Turner is a very bad dude.  He has been in and out of juvie over the years.  He has a baby face, some brains, and a cold-blooded criminal side.  He is an authentic Vice Lord. Make that Insane Vice Lord.  He gets very hostile if you only refer to him as a "Vice Lord".   He turned 18 on December 2.  I observed him in Youth Court in October.*  Let's just say it was clear he was well-known to the judge.  This is one of those kids who wakes up every day thinking of what he can steal that day.  Its what he does.  He will probably graduate to armed robberies, carjackings, and other violent crimes at some point.
Check out this picture and video of Stephen Turner.  Notice his partner?  The partner is Eric Taylor.  The BMW thief who crashed in Eastover a year ago.  He got some Rankin County justice this week.  Judge Steve Ratliff sentenced him to twenty-five years in prison but suspended ten years of the prison sentence.  However, Taylor will probably be released once he serves half of the sentence (7.5 years). 

Kingfish note:  Assistant District Attorney Kimalon Campbell is prosecuting the Hinds County indictments.  She immediately moved to revoke his bond after his June arrest.  Keep up the good work, prosecutor.  Just do us one favor.  Don't consolidate these cases.  Prosecute one and get it adjudicated.  Then prosecute the next one and get him as a habitual offender if possible. Please.

Can't we get them into the JFP Youth Media Project? Donner could turn 'em around because she's an expert on all things youth.

If he is such a bad dude why did he get a 15 year sentence dropped to 2.5 years?

2 1/2 years in the big house is like a post grad degree for an 18yo. Look what he will learn.

Sentenced to fifteen, will serve maybe 2.5. Sweet. That's just about long enough to learn enough in the lockup to improve his trade. Sort of like a journeyman.

A self respecting judge would be ashamed to do such a thing.

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.
