30 Years for Kidnapping & Robbery

Rankin-Madison District Attorney John Bramlett issued the following statement.

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced today that Deshaun Grissom was sentenced to 30 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping. Five years will be suspended and he will have to serve 25 years in prison. Upon his release, he will serve five years of supervised probation.

On August 15, 2015, the Richland Police Department was dispatched to the Title Cash on Bud Street regarding a possible armed robbery that had just occurred. Upon arriving, the clerk told law enforcement that an African American male followed her into the store as she was opening for the day. The suspect, later identified as Grissom, pulled a weapon from his pocket and pointed it at the clerk. The clerk ran to an adjacent business, Acceptance Insurance, to flee from Grissom. Grissom followed her into the building and demanded the clerk’s keys. The employee of Acceptance Insurance was in the parking lot gathering personal items out of her car. Grissom noticed the employee in the parking lot and demanded that she come to him or he would start shooting. She fled into the Title Cash building to hide and called 911. After rummaging through her car, Grissom fled on foot from the scene.

Officers started looking for the assailant on foot and also called in the k-9 unit. The dog tracked the suspect to a home that appeared to have been unlawfully entered.

It was later learned that Grissom broke into that home and forced the occupant, at gunpoint, to transport him to a restaurant in Clinton. After dropping the assailant off at the restaurant, the occupant of the home returned to find law enforcement where he provided a description of the assailant.

A photo line-up was compiled where Grissom was positively identified by the Title Cash clerk and by the man who was forced to drive him to Clinton. Grissom was arrested in Tennessee and was extradited back to Mississippi.

District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr. stated, “Grissom is an extremely dangerous criminal who had planned this crime for many days. His arrest is important because we have removed another criminal from society.”

Bramlett concluded, “The Richland Police Department worked this case as hard as any case has been worked and their accomplishments are a great testimony to their commitment to the oath they took to serve and protect. They should be applauded for their outstanding work and investigatory victories.”

Kingfish note: Wow.  30 years for kidnapping and robbery.  If only there were prosecutors who would prosecute kidnapping cases........

No one was beat, raped, or strangled. He got 25 years while that rich white boy up in Oxford didnt even get 5 years.

This is white supremacy manifest in a two tiered justice system.

Deshaun versus Sheldon. Figure it out.

Equal justice is not equal.

No blessings in Rankin and Madison Counties. Do the crime, do the time.

Seriously, who is this troll who keeps doing all the race baiting on your blog??

The article doesn't say whether Grissom had a prior criminal history, which may have accounted for his sentence. That said, white folks (at least this white folk) don't like the way Sheldon Alston was treated, either.

A good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge.

You all realize "Deshawn" was prosecuted for armed robbery on top of the kidnapping charge, right ?

Alston's case insn't completely over yet. I imagine daddy, or grandpa is going to be writing a big check to end the civil matter against him.

That 3 year, get out in 18 month deal wouldn't have flown in Rankin.

I'm tellin' y'all, if I was that girl's daddy up in Oxford or wherever, I'd be waiting on the day of release to whip that ass. She already got her punishment to tying up with some sorry POS like him, but he'd get his too.

In response to 12:09, any attorney whose practice relies on peddling influence with a judge should be disbarred as both incompetent and unethical. That's my $0.02, as a practicing attorney of almost 20 years.

10:13 The lesson for thugs is to stay in Hinds county. Rankin and Madison counties will nail your butt. There are no Tommie Greens in those counties.

Grissoms two WHITE co defendants got two years and 5 years respectively. Investigate that Kingfish....Seems like the white folks who helped plan it, cased the place the day before, drove him there, watched from the Waffle House across the street then picked him up in Clinton and drove him back to Vburg and split the money should have gotten some harsh punishment. One of them is already out on the street again.

The two white co defendants got 2 yrs and 7 yrs. Neither had a previous arrest record unlike Grissom who was out on bond at the time for a similar crime committed in Warren Co. Neither eluded law enforcement for almost 4 yrs like Grissom and both were cooperative with law enforcement.

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.
