Still waiting........

 Notorious Jackson hoodlum Vidal Sullivan still sits in the Hinds County jail awaiting trial.  However, the District Attorney could send him back to the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections for violating his probation but has yet to do so.  JJ reported on March 29:

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.

However, the old crimes are assigned to Circuit Judge Bill Gowan.  The District Attorney's office has not yet filed a notice of revocation with the court.  Thus Mr. Sullivan sits in the Raymond Detention Center awaiting trial when he could be both serving a four-year sentence at Parchman and awaiting trial for his latest crimes.  Not quite catch & release but close. 

Kingfish note: Come on, D.A., do your job and send him back to prison.

I wish Hinds county could be annexed by Rankin and Madison counties. Their D.A. has the balls to do his job

I was in Madison County Circuit Court once and there was a guy that should have been violated for a new crime committed while on probation. I remember how that Judge got all over the Probation Officer for not filing an affidavit and seeking a warrant for a a probation violation. See KF this defendant is being supervised by the MDOC not by the District Attorney's Office.
3:06 said it best- Learn the law, king fool
Then you can bitch about it but please bitch about it to the right agency- And maybe while you are 'still waiting', you can study the law

11:35, I'm sure you also know that the probation officer can recommend or present revocation paperwork to the Judge only after it is approved by a supervisor. Deputy Commissioner Kristi gungtherx does not permit officers to do this except on rare occasions. Officers must get treatment for probat8oner, give another chance, counsel probationer, keep offender in the community to save money. Etc... . I'll bet you also know she has never been a law enforcement officer and has no idea what a probation officers job is or should be. If she had any brains she wouldn't have officers acting as bill collectors instead of probation officers.

I was told by one bunch that the DA has to do it. I was told by another it was MDOC.

When javarius chambers had his revoked in Madison County, it was guests office who handled it. Same for Rollins in Hinds although MDOC probation officers were there and testified. Randy Harris handled it.

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.

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.
