Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green gave yet another criminal her blessing. Sentobia was convicted of armed robbery and auto burglary in 2016 yet did not serve one day in prison thanks to Judge Green's participation in the Hinds County catch & release program.
A Hinds County grand jury indicted Sentobia Paige in June 2015 for breaking into a Ford 150 and stealing some goods. Paige is 26 years old. The case was assigned to Judge Jeff Weill but somehow wound up over in Judge Green's court. Judge Green sentenced him in July 2016 to serve seven years in prison but ordered him to participate in the RID program. She re-sentenced him on November 17, 2016 to probation for three years and suspended the seven-year prison sentence. She also ordered his immediate release. She ordered the sentence to run concurrent with his sentence for his armed robbery conviction.
Armed robbery, readers ask? Yup. The grand jury indicted Paige in May 2014 for using a gun to steal a cellphone from the victim in March. This crime took place before the auto burglary crime. Perhaps he should get credit for moving down from armed robbery to auto burglary. It is so rare when these thugs downgrade their crimes.
Judge Green sentenced Paige to serve ten years for the armed robbery BUT suspended all ten years of the prison sentence since he completed the RID program. She ordered his immediate release and placed him on probation for three years.
However, Paige is now guilty of two felonies. He can be classified as a habitual offender upon a third conviction.
