Vidal Sullivan was on probation when he was arrested and indicted for armed robbery. He was convicted of aggravated assault in 2006 and sentenced to serve ten years in prison. However, he was released from prison on November 15, 2012 to serve probation for three years. However, Sullivan stopped reporting to his probation officer, thus "stopping the clock" on his probation sentence. He has approximately four years of his prison sentence to serve if his probation is revoked.
A Hinds County grand jury indicted Vidal Sullivan on February 23. His bond was set at $300,000. The indictment states that Sullivan used a gun to separate one Johnny Smith from his wallet and $200 on November 12, 2016. The indictment also seeks classification of Sullivan as a habitual offender. It states that he has the following convictions:
Aggravated assault in Hinds County (March 13, 1996)
C/S Possession of Cocaine in Hinds County (May 11, 2000)
Aggravated assault in Hinds County (November 6, 2006)
Sullivan achieved quite a bit of notoriety back in the 1990's and 2000's. He was accused of kidnapping two women but the grand jury did not indict him. He was known as one of the Wood Street Players that attracted so much of Frank Melton's attention.
The case is assigned to Judge Jeff Weill. Sullivan is currently in custody on a $300,000 bond.
Kingfish note: He was arrested in December. Where is the motion to revoke his probation or notice to the court of his probation violation? Come on D.A. and MDOC, come get your boy.
