Dale speaks

Madison Municipal Court Judge Dale Danks just issued new guidelines that states suspects between the ages of 18-21 must remain in jail for 48 hours unless parents can be notified.

Tell the City Attorney to clear some time defending this in federal court.

Is it even remotely close to legal for them to do this?

Anonymous said...

yes because the Madison County Jail is such a lovely place to stay and nothing bad ever happens there.

Nah, it'll be shot down in Madison County Circuit Court

He cannot lawfully enforce court-ordered treatment when the defendant will have already served the maximum possible jail time. He can't unlawfully deny bond. The defendant may not be guilty. Sounds like a judicial performance complaint may occur.

Lawyers will eat this alive. But populism is alive and well in these days. Maybe he wants to run for something soon

wow, so Dale has been conferring with Mother Mary, the police chief, and others to formulate bond policy? can they all spell "ex parte"? finally, too many years in the tanning booth has exposed his mental problems. no defender of drunk drivers, but this is misplaced concerns...

Mayor Danks is supposed to be on JT's program next week according to my boss. Good call on the highly rated program. Again!

Ain't no party like an ex parte! This policy is unconstitutional and arbitrary, even a public defender could shred it to pieces.

"Treatment"? Who the hell said anything about treatment. This will make the 'Yo Momma' crowd show up and claim their urchins. Go Dale!

You pecker-heads are just jealous of our 'No Peacock' ordinance. Screw y'all...

You 'Monday Morning Dolts' actually think Danks is not prepared for a contest?

I think it is a very good idea. That way the parents will know when their little darling is messing up.

They are not minors. They are adults under the law. As such, he can't arbitrarily keep them for 48 hours. AHe could do this to non-citizens, but not US citizens. There is a Constitution.

"Parents" as in mother AND Father? Good luck with that.

The age of majority in MS is 21.

Until emancipated by some act (marriage, removal of minority, etc) one is technically a minor from 18-21. It's considered legally a "disability"

What is the purpose of this proclamation?

So we're going to help them by keeping them in jail? Hmmm...

Most parents don't have the nuts to leave "little Johnny" in jail, so they're letting "Mother Mary" literally be "Mother Mary".

I guess it'll be the "deer in the headlights" from "Jack and Jill yuppie" when the city decides to keep their crotch fruit locked up without bond for jaywalking.

Oh, and you business owners get your security cameras installed, unless you want to be in jail.

Way to go Judge Danks !

Hopefully 48 hours in the Madison County Lock-Up might just be the attitude adjustment these lil' punks need.

When the possibility of a "Canton Jail Colorectal Massage" is in the mix, this may be one of the best juvenile rehabilitation ideas ever !

Can the age group in question drink alcohol under the law?

I'm reminded of Prosecutor Berger who always used to whine, "Your honor, that question is incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial".

State law on a DUI 1st conviction is 48 hrs in jail

Yeah, rape is so funny, 10:48. Until it happens to you or your kids.

The Law schools in Mississippi are about as good as Trump U.

Wow Kingfish, JT is promoting his show that has 3 advertisers. Isn't it strange that few want to place ads on such a highly rated show.

At age 18 one is still a minor under Mississippi law; age 21 is the age of majority. However, persons age 18 are prosecuted for crimes as adults because Youth Court loses jurisdiction when a person has attained the age of 18.

Maybe they should be jailed until they make bail.

"State law on a DUI 1st conviction is 48 hrs in jail."

That comment is incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial. A person of any age hauled to the tank after 'failing' a legitimate blow-test has not been convicted of anything.

Anonymous said...

he means the max jail time for a DUI First is 48 hours.

Anonymous said...

Actually, what he means is locking them up for 48 hours is protected by the fact that first offense DUI (conviction) is 48 hours in jail. He just omits the fact that the incarcerant has been convicted of nada. How you like that word?

Anonymous said...

For those UNDER 21 years old, jail is not authorized as part of the sentence (if convicted) anyway:

Section 63-11-30(3) Zero Tolerance for Minors.
***
(b)(ii) Upon conviction of any person under the age of twenty-one (21) years for the first offense of violating subsection (1) of this section where chemical tests provided for under Section 63-11-5 were given, or where chemical test results are not available, the person shall be fined Two Hundred Fifty Dollars ($250.00); the court shall order the person to attend and complete an alcohol safety education program as provided in Section 63-11-32 within six (6) months. The court may also require attendance at a victim impact panel.

Methinks somebody got his brain over-baked in the tanning bed. It's tough to make reasoned decisions when you're inside a microwave 10 hours a week. You just lose the ability to do shit right.

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

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.
