No Indictment Means Accused Child Molester Gets Bond

Accused child molester Christopher Patton might get out out of jail after Judge Tomie Green reduced his bond due to a lack of indictment.  Christopher Patton was a Jackson Public Schools Bus Driver who was arrested for allegedly committing sexual assault against an elementary school student in early December.  WLBT reported he was charged with gratification of lust and sexual battery.



County Court Judge Bill Skinner refused to set bond for Patton but ruled (per a standing order from Judge Green).  However, he decreed that he must "appear at a bond review hearing before" Judge Green if he was not indicted by May 1.  Judge Skinner's February 1 order stated that he could not be released until he appeared before Judge Green.

The Senior Circuit Judge reviewed Patton's detention and reduced his bond to $50,000 and placed him on house arrest with a 10:00 curfew.   She said he had been incarcerated without bond for 193 days but had not been indicted.

The Hinds County website states that Patton is still in custody at the Raymond Detention Center. It is not known if Patton is related to the former British Governor of Hong Kong.  

Kingfish note: Come on team, get your act together.

Greene must go...

I don't blame Green here. The issue is the DA has not indicted him after over 100 days in jail. That's unacceptable.

Maybe he will move to north pointe

That long in jail without charges violates the U.S. Constitution's Sixth Amendment. Doesn't MS also have a "speedy trial act?"

This is unconscionable. His lawyer should have filed a writ of habeas corpus.

Tomie Green is an idiot....and still drawing a paycheck.

School bus drivers are creepy. They can't drive and they hire some of the most dumbest people on the face of plant.

Notwithstanding the face of a plant, if he was not indicted after this long, he doesn't deserve, by law, to be held in jail.

If I was the father of the victim I would extract some street justice.
The Federal & State government is beyond broke!

What time do you normally finish your route?

Dumb and creepy don't equal being a kiddydiddler. He shouldn't be breathing much less free

Kingfish said...

Can't hold him forever. Indict and arraign or turn him loose. They've had over six months to indict him. Judge Reeves already warned them about this crap.

This sad on so many levels. That child deserves Justice and He/She/It deserves punishment.

The judicial system is a Sad !!!!

KF......just run for Governor and fix all of this crap!

The judge placed this order to force either an indictment or reasonable bond across the board. Don’t blame her for the lack of action. She has many failures but this is not on her

Judge Green just doing her job. Nobody is doing the DAs job

No indictment and the case has not been tried and you yokels are already hanging the man. Thousands upon thousands of men have been falsely accused in similar situations. The same crowd who wanted the Madison County Deputy to hang a week ago.

9:03, 9:13, and Kingfish made sense of it. Fair is fair, wanted to understand the reasoning for them releasing him.

Le Redacteur said...

Oh, no! The Capital Letter Criminal is on the loose again, last spotted at 1:20 p.m., June 22! It is sad, indeed, but is it Sad?

Either way criminals are being set loose on the streets.
With the DA and the judges teaming up most thugs don't need to post bond. One of them will let them out.

People blaming Judge Green in this situation have no idea about the justice system. Everybody did their job in this situation but DA.

Just how inefficient does the DA’s office have to be before impeachment. These sickos are never one time offenders. This is endangering the lives of children. How do Jacksonians tolerate this dereliction of duty?

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
