Carjackers sentenced

U.S. Attorney Greg Davis issued the following statement:


Two Jackson Men Sentenced to 60 months in Armed Carjacking Case

Jackson, Miss - Gregory Hines, age 20 and Deontra Deon Paige, age 19, both of Jackson, were sentenced on January 10, 2017 before U.S. District Judge David Bramlette III to a term of 60 months in federal prison, after having previously pled guilty in U.S. District Court to armed carjacking, announced U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis.

The crime took place on February 6, 2016 at a residence in Jackson. The victims, a husband and wife, had arrived home for the evening, when the wife decided to retrieve her Bible from their vehicle. As she attempted to do so, the defendants approached her, both bearing firearms. The defendants ordered her out of the vehicle and demanded the keys. The husband located the keys and tossed them to the defendants. The defendants left in the vehicle where Jackson Police Department officers subsequently apprehended them in the drive thru of the Burger King restaurant on Terry Road in Jackson. Jackson Police Department officers were able to locate the weapons used in the carjacking.

Hines and Paige’s 60 months’ terms of imprisonment shall be immediately followed by a three-year term of supervised release and they were both further ordered to pay a fine in the amount of $1,500.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with the Jackson Police Department, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Abe McGlothin, Jr.

Prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney. At least it WAS NOT a Hinds county judge. If it had of been; it would have been a slap on the wrist, then they could go on with there criminal activities in and around the Jackson area.

five years is not proportional to the crime; its a bit more than a slap on the wrist, but not much. they do have to serve a minimum of 85% of the five...

However carjacking, like other common crimes, is not an area of federal jurisdiction, no matter what the federal laws say. Go check the Constitution.

well Congress and the SCOTUS disagrees with your scholarly acumen...

Why was this in Federal court?

Nevermind, I found the law. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2119

Should have given them at least 15 years. To me, an armed robber is implying that they will kill someone over a piece of property. Someone like that cannot be trusted to be free among others. 5 years is nothing but a slap on the wrist.

Bet they were wishing Green would be the judge. They would not have had to spend a night in jail. Guess this judge was not for sale.

Why was this investigated by the ATF? and prosecuted as federal?

With the recent carjacking at the Baptist, maybe it is time that the Feds take over all these carjacking cases, get some swift justice and deserving punishment

And please don't say something stupid like...."Because a firearm was displayed".

It was not on federal property, didn't involve any federal employees, didn't involve a federal grant or federal equipment, had nothing to do with bombs or bomb-making and wasn't interstate transport of alkeehaul.

Why federal indeed!

At least we won't see them for 5 years!!!

I'd let Gregory Hines tap dance his way into my car...

Some of you privileged assholes just don't understand the concept of social justice. You don't understand the challenges that young Mr. Hines and Mr. Paige have faced up until this point in their lives. Can you not see how they might feel angry at those who have treated them like they were invisible or even worse feared them, while never failing to look for any way to profit off of them and their people. If they had faced a social justice judge like Tomie Green, they may have participated in a program that was designed to instill discipline, something they obviously need but never got because they didn't have a father or access to quality schools. No one complains when a rich kid gets sent there for something that would have sent most poor kids (and that's what young adults really are these days) to prison. Judge Green is the deffest and freshest judge in Hinds County, and I am glad we have someone like her willing to help make a difference in young people's lives.

She also make tha dopest rhymes.

The weapons were recovered by JPD. It was likely investigated by the BATFE because the weapons used violated the National Firearms Act, i.e. sawed off shotgun, illegal short barrel rifle, etc.

Maybe they will compete against each other for "Employee of the Month". Welcome to UNICOR boys.

1:02...'Investigated by' is one thing. 'Prosecuted by' is quite another. The investigation might have involved Rankin County, the state of Utah and The Choctaw Tribal Nation, but none of those involved themselves in the prosecution.

So, the question still remains. Why was this a federal prosecution?

Commerce clause. Federal because the car moved in interstate commerce.

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.

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.
