Rapist gets life

Madison-Rankin District Attorney issued the following press release: 

Habitual Offender Sentenced to Life in Prison following the Sexual Assault of a Ridgeland Woman    

               Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that Samuel Terrail Young, Jr. was sentenced to life in the custody of the Department of Corrections without the possibility of parole after being found guilty, through a two-day trial, by a Madison County jury for sexual battery.

            On June 28, 2015, the Ridgeland Police Department received a 911 call from a woman who had been sexually assaulted at her Rice Road apartment in Ridgeland.  Police responded and spoke with the victim who told officers that shortly after 10:00 p.m. she was in her apartment and went into her bedroom where she was confronted by an unknown male.  He demanded money from her and when she failed to turn over any money he began physically assaulting her.

The intruder ordered her to remove her clothes and he sexually assaulted her in her bedroom and living room.  During the attack he repeatedly told her that he would kill her if she screamed or called the police.  He also ordered her not to look at him during the assault in an attempt to prevent her from later identifying him. 

After speaking with law enforcement, the victim was taken to a local hospital where a sexual assault kit was completed by medical personnel and turned over to investigators.  The sexual assault kit was then submitted to the Mississippi State Crime Laboratory in an attempt to develop the DNA profile of the rapist.  The kit contained seminal fluid and the crime lab was able to obtain a DNA profile for the unidentified suspect.  The profile was run through the national DNA database, CODIS, and was matched to the DNA on file for Samuel Terrail Young, Jr. 

It was determined that Young was currently on federal probation for bank robbery and a weapons violation.  The Ridgeland Police Department issued a warrant for Young’s arrest and he was taken into custody with the assistance of the Federal Probation Office.  A search warrant was later issued to obtain a DNA swab of the defendant’s person and that sample was matched to the DNA profile obtained from the sexual assault kit.

            Guest stated, “Young is violent and dangerous habitual offender who had been out of jail for one week before committing this heinous crime.  He has shown that he will not abide by the laws that govern our society and will now have to spend the rest of his life in prison.  This conviction and sentence removes another violent criminal from Madison County streets forever.”                                             

            Guest concluded, “The victim in case was extremely courageous to report the crime committed and to later tell a jury what occurred.  Her testimony, combined with the evidence produced by the Ridgeland Police Department and the Mississippi State Crime Laboratory, gave the Madison County jury the evidence needed to find Young guilty.  This conviction is an example of how the justice system can work when the police, prosecutors, the judge and jury, come together to hold accountable those who break our laws.”

            Young has numerous prior felony convictions.  He was previously convicted of Aggravated Assault in Madison County in 2008, Bank Robbery and a Felon in Possession of a Firearm in United States District Court in 2011, and Automobile Theft in Hinds County in 2012. 
            District Attorney Michael Guest was sworn into office in January 2008 and represents the Twentieth Judicial District, Madison and Rankin Counties.  For more information regarding the District Attorney’s office, please download our app @ daguest, follow us on Facebook and visit,

Address:                       159 Wheatley Place, Ridgeland 
Date of Birth:               December 14, 1987

If this leach on society had been given a life sentence in 2008 he could not have committed the additional crimes in 2011, 2012, & the rape in 2015. Tougher sentences keep these animal in jail & away from society. Liberal democrats are 50% to blame for the women. Remember Mississippi is culpability law state.

So this 29 year old scumbag is off the streets, and we get the pleasure of forking over $50k a year for the next 50 years to imprison him. $2.5 million when a $1 for a bullet between his eyes would save us all time, grief and safety of others.

If a frog had wings, 4:10. Where was your sharpshooter ass when he was between the van and the court house? Watching The View. Thought so.

7:27 uuuummmm. Basic reading skills would lead to concluding that 4:10 is making an appeal for capital punishment, not vigilante behavior.

I don't think so, 8:25. Capital punishment in this country doesn't include a bullet between the eyes. Nor is capital punishment ever a sentence for rape. Come back after you've rethought your position. uuuummmmmm.

Real question here. What is the penalty for Bank Robbery? I am not kidding. How in the world was he not in prison for a decade?

3:11, I am 4:10. You are wrong and 7:27 is right. Firing squads have been used in this country in the past. But you are more than welcome to pay extra taxes to provide digs for the rapist for the next 50 years.

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.
