Grinches Sentenced

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following statement. 


Three Greenville men will spend time in prison for burglarizing a Greenville home in 2017 and stealing gifts from under a man’s Christmas tree, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.


Billy Ray Walker, 37, Antonio Jones, 27, and Sakool Wilson, 27, were each sentenced Tuesday on one charge each of house burglary by Washington County Circuit Court Judge Ashley Hines. Walker, who has two prior felony convictions for house burglary, was sentenced as a habitual offender to 23 years with five years suspended, 18 years to serve, and five years post release supervision. He was also sentenced to five years for conspiracy that will run concurrently with the house burglary conviction.

Jones also had two prior felony convictions for house burglary and was sentenced to 20 years to serve as a habitual offender. Wilson was sentenced to 10 years to serve.

“Burglars are greedy criminals, but stealing from an innocent person during the holidays is even worse,” General Hood said. “Thanks to Judge Hines for the strong sentencings. I hope that closing this case brings the victim holiday cheer that was previously stolen from him and his family.”

Each defendant was also ordered to pay restitution to both the insurance company and the victim. Split evenly among the defendants, restitution to the insurance company totals $23,581.76 and $12,649.51 to the victim. Each defendant was also ordered to pay $500 to Victims’ Compensation Fund as well as court costs.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander. The investigation was conducted by the Greenville Police Department with assistance from AG investigator Perry Tate. The AG’s office received this case because of a conflict of interest with the Washington County District Attorney’s office.

$23000 and $12000 in restitution? What did they steal?

His wives. Sad story

Wait - insurance companies reimburse for stolen wives?!?

Let it be known: My back door is always unlocked, and I never talk to cops!

Now - what papers do I need to fill out? Do I get a choice in size for a replacement, or do I have to take what they send? ;-)

So tell me how this restitution stuff works when you are ordered by the court to pay but you’re in prison for 18 years and you obviously didn’t have a pot to piss in to begin with? I guess go out and commit another felony to pay off the prior felony? It sounds good on paper but in reality I’m having trouble deciphering this. Oh, and I’m asking for David, oops I mean a friend

Someone tell Conway Twitty his political career is over and he can stop campaigning on the public’s dime.

And taxpayers get to shell out $1.5 million plus ($30k/year/POS) to house, feed, entertain, etc. this pond scum. The best solution is to pay to not incent mothers to "birth" them in the first place.

Restitution will never be paid . With there record they will not find nor will they try to get a job. If they ever come before a judge for not paying, they can simply say they can't find work

Two years from crime to conviction is entirely too long.

Having a name like Sakool should earn you a free pass in life.

What a bunch of complainers!

Attorney General Jim Hood has ensured that these common criminals will be locked away for a long long time.

You can be sure that these three felons will not be just left loose to loot progress in the level of their crimes.

Sending offenders like these to Parchman for rehabilitation should help ensure that they aren't looting unwitting and defenseless homeowners associations or cooking up the next compounding pharmacy pain cream scam.

The restitution demand is just to get the offender's attention, and ensure that if they ever invest in lotto tickets the state has an option to collect. Besides, what self respecting progressive Attorney General would have his minions issue a press release without bragging about whacking the offenders with a yooge fine and restitution?

This is a great example of why we need the habitual offender law. What better use of tax money than to keep these thugs behind bars so they don’t rob us again. They have antisocial personality disorder. They cannot be rehabilitated. They should be made to work for the taxpayers

To which state will they be sent for 'rehab'? I'd like to know more so we might get that concept implemented here.

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.
