She's attractive, but closer to an 8 than a 10.

Seriously though, the threshold for a Grand Jury indictment is considerably lower than convincing a trial jury to pass down a Guilty Verdict. It's well known that a DA can get his carefully selected Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich.

It's just her biographic info.

Booked at 15:42 today for Sexual Battery and released on $35k bond. Court date is 10/18/2019

She's too pretty for a grand jury to be convinced she sexually assaulted an adult. She looks like Penny from Big Bang Theory. Safe to assume a minor is her accuser.

Having trouble understanding. There was not enough evidence to continue a SafeSports coaching ban but there is enough for an indictment for sexual battery? Either it is jokingly easy to indict without sufficient evidence or SafeSports is doing a terrible job investigating accusations.

Bubba added some cheese and heated up the ham sandwich. Got the cheese all melty. The grand jury indicted.

The victim could’ve been coached. The criteria for sexual battery is not very tough to meet. The whole story needs to be published before the commenters start throwing out their assumptions.

You are correct, that is why you should objectively use language like accuser instead of the biased term victim which implies guilt.

Closer to a 5 than a 10.

Well this is certainly new info and odd coming immediately after the swim organization reinstated her. I’ve thought the accusations were ridiculous and they may turn out to be. But law enforcement taking action certainly changes the situation. Just have to wait to see what evidence their could be.

Does anyone know if this suspect/defendant is involved, or has been involved, in any of the swim meets or practices at the UMC Wellness Center in Flowood?

OHHHH NOOOO! Rankin County is lost! Don’t even cross the river unless you’re willing to take your life in our hands! Savages!

This cannot be true. I worked with her. She’s a wonderful human.

What other sport has a web link specifically to list people or coaches who have been suspended? Swimming is apparently a sport that has too many child predators or individuals with major abuse problems.

Do the benefits of competitive swimming outweigh the risk of your child being molested?

Is it scholarships or just trophies that are won?

Why would you put your children in danger of sexual predators?

Professional swimming and gymnastics have taken on a whole new, less attractive inspiration in the last year or so.

In light of all the perverts coaching these children; it is assumed that if a child is allowed to participate in these activities, their parents must know about these risks. Are some condoning this behavior?

Curious why Rankin County is involved if she coaches and teaches in Madison. Did the alleged abuse take place at her (or his)home?

She was born in Amory. That explains a lot.

@10:11 wins for Most Ignorant JJ Post Of the Year. The competition for 2019 is now closed. Good luck to everyone next year.

If you think that attractive sexual predators are doing a favor to their alleged victims ( not " accuser" as the obvious defense attorney claimed), whether underaged or not, you have the mentality of a Neanderthal.

If you believe the attractiveness of the alleged victim made them irresistible, you are also have not evolved with the rest of humanity.

If you make see either type of comment as humor, you lack wit and empathy and also have not evolved.

It also makes those having to suffer your presence in the human gene pool suspect that incest has been a tradition in your family.

sports organizations looking the other way:

usa gymnastics

thankfully when law enforcement looked into them they didn’t look away

@ 8:06 In a special kind of way, you might get to share the prize. Stop acting like all of this okay.

Can victims be compensated financially for this in civil court? Did she slap someone on the butt and get in trouble? I haven’t read the report and am not planning to.

Thank you to all the coaches in the world who do it the right way.

8:11 am wants to do away with the inconvenience of a trial and just assume guilt based on mere allegations. People like him/her are as much a danger to our society as actual criminals are.

Anonymous said...

@9:17 If she slapped someone on the butt, the charge would be fondling/gratification of lust. Sexual battery, what she’s been charged with, requires penetration.

This sort of thing has been going on between young boys and older women since.......
Rudyard Kipling told about it in his poem “The Ladies”! Not condoning it, just saying!

I was a young un at ’Oogli,
Shy as a girl to begin;
Aggie de Castrer she made me,
An’ Aggie was clever as sin; 20
Older than me, but my first un—
More like a mother she were—
Showed me the way to promotion an’ pay,
An’ I learned about women from ’er!

So sorry. No doxxing allowed.

Maybe there will be a movie. "The Graduate" would be a great title.

"Hide it in a hiding place where no one ever goes
Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes
It's a little secret, just the Robinsons' affair
Most of all, you've got to hide it from the kids..."

Anonymous said...

What is doxxing?

And, no, sexual battery does not require penetration. There's no penetration involved in a hand job.

And what about all you clowns on here who, just the other day, were posting bullshit about other parents whom you thought to be involved in getting her the 'attention' her behavior deserved? You're silent now. How come?

2:57 pm I said nothing about the guilt or innocence of anyone.

I simply called you or whoever ( if not you) out on your attempted euphemism.

Did you not notice I put "alleged" before victims?

Do you like "accused perpetrator" better than " alleged perpetrator".

If you missed the word " alleged" in your reading, I hope you aren't trying to represent anyone. Words are important in the law.

I believe that you have your jimmies rustled by two seperate people because I am who commented @6:25 PM about accusers and victims but I am not the same commenter you are currently directing your invectives.

Anonymous said...

@7:46, you are incorrect. By statutory definition, sexual battery requires penetration. See Miss Code Ann Section 97-3-95 (2), which I provide for your easy reference:
A person is guilty of sexual battery if he or she engages in sexual penetration with a child under the age of eighteen (18) years if the person is in a position of trust or authority over the child including without limitation the child's teacher, counselor, physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, minister, priest, physical therapist, chiropractor, legal guardian, parent, stepparent, aunt, uncle, scout leader or coach.

The biggest fact question is the age of the "child" at the time of the alleged act, assuming there was an act.

Was the victim a minor? I don’t see mention that he was.

Fernando may be a good coach. Savannah may be a nice person. They may have a van full of well behaved children. When and how PEAQ was formed and its relationship with the other teams in the Metro are irrelevant. None of those things mean she can't be a sexual offender...which is precisely what she is. It's a tale as old as time to try and undermine the victim and question their motivation to come forward and IT NEEDS TO STOP. This is no ones fault but an adult woman, in a position of authority, that used that position to take advantage of someone that had been entrusted to her care. Period.

Anonymous said...

I have no idea if this person is guilty of anything, but I'll offer this general advice:

Legality aside, a sexual relationship between mature 16-year-old and a 21-year-old could easily be within defensible parameters. Even something between an unusually mature 16-year-old and a 25-year-old could be arguably defensible, depending on the specific circumstances of the particular situation.

However, a sexual relationship, in 2019, between a 15-16-year-old and a married 30+-year-old (or even a single one) is not reasonably defensible. Even assuming real and honest feelings on the part of the older party, adulthood carries with it the responsibility to conduct oneself within the law. A reasonable 30-plus-year-old person is well aware having sexual relations with someone known to them to be 15-16 is illegal.

If you are determined to flirt with disaster, do not act surprised when disaster welcomes the come-on and splays you across whatever is handy to force an unpleasant experience.

So sad for her four young children. Now she will have to be listed as a sexual predator. When will some teachers learn? Why aren’t they educating future teachers or even current ones on the outcome of this? Do a web search on teacher student affairs and it will shock you. Sad....very sad.

To every ignorant commenter acting as if an indictment is a conviction...

She is presumed innocent until found guilty. And indictment isn't a conviction.

Go read some damn books people. Hell, go watch Matlock or Perry Mason if you prefer.

Might as well be an conviction when your mugshot gets posted on every news website and in every newspaper.

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.
