Clinton teen busted for child porn

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following statement.


 A 19-year-old man from Clinton was arrested today after being charged with one count of child exploitation for possessing child pornography, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

William Wood was arrested at his home following an investigation of suspicious online activity. He was booked into the Clinton city jail awaiting his initial appearance.

If convicted, Wood faces up to 40 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This case was investigated by Jay Houston with the Mississippi Attorney General's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with assistance from the Clinton Police Department. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.

Hopefully he can get a good plea deal. I feel bad for this kid.

"KID"? He's NINETEEN! Imagine him at thirty living down the street from you.

I wish we didn’t live widely publicize names and pictures like this until conviction. I’m just as sure as everybody else that this guy’s probably guilty, but it just gives me the creeps that we are so quick to plaster his personal info out there because one out of 1 million times the dude might turn out to be innocent, and we have ruined his life.

12:02, The 1 out of 1 million chance of ruining this guy's life is worth it. He must be shamed and exposed as soon as possible in order to warn others of his evilness before he repeat offends. What if a Hinds County judge granted him bail and he was able to go back into the community, meanwhile his defense attorneys are dragging out and delaying the trial as much as possible. These people cannot be ever be trusted or cured. If we aren't allowed to string them up on the courthouse lawn immediately, this is the next best thing.

@11:10 - Our society has no idea of the age at which a "kid" becomes an adult. If a 19 year old commits a crime....well, he's completely grown up. But, let him become the victim of a crime and suddenly....he's "just a child".

This doesn’t look much like a mug shot.

It appears you're confused. It's the media that suggests those life-milestones such as child and adult. Those of us who have the ability to think can make our own judgments. If you want to sit around with your thumb up your ass and wait for the media to sway your opinion, I can't help you.

The wheels of justice turn incredibly slowly. It may be years before this man is held publically accountable. It is good that there is an arena to inform the public of arrests. This was not a victimless crime.

to: im probably not a robot................well, you hold yourself out as some sort of legal expert, dont you? by you wise ass cracks about attorneys 'dragging out and delaying the trial', you would have people believe the attorney is complicent in the crime. for every defendant that wants to delay a case there are an equal amount of cases deliberately delayed by your precious government prosecutors. thats why the founding fathers put the speedy trial clause in the constitution. but a goofball like you would not know the constitution from a constellation .

In response to "I wish we didn’t widely publicize names and pictures like this until conviction."
Would you also be in line to sue the city/state when he is quietly released back into the community after his initial plea, and allowed to stalk the children in your town while he awaited trial?
Which is it?
Generally, in cases like this, there is plenty of probable cause to make the arrest. A search warrant of his IP and browsing history can tell an investigator a whole lot. Usually, just days before an arrest, these guys are talking dirty to cops over the internet, thinking its a kid.

The right to a speedy trial is for the sake of the criminal who can't make bond! Everyone else wants slow slow due process. Speedy trial is a right that can be refused.

6th amendment speedy trial is governed by the 4 part test of BARKER v WINGO. first is length of the delay. anything beyond 8 months is presumptive prejudice . second is reason for the delay. 3nd is whether a trial demand has been filed. the 4th is prejudice to the defendant which is sometimes hard to prove. but BARKER is a balancing test and a defendant can win on it if he can show 3 of the 4 factors.

12:02 here. I don’t know where you live, but in Madison our judge sets the bond high enough so as to protect the public from these kinds of public risks. Don’t pretend that malicious prosecution or even downright collusion or fraud upon the court don’t exist occasionally. My colloquial one-in-a-million figure was probably too small. Bottom line: if law enforcement and the court system do their jobs right, we should be fine with protecting people‘s reputations until they are convicted. I think your anger and blame are misdirected away from those truly responsible for creating the risks by not doing their jobs properly.

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.
