DA: Revoke Bond of Drive-By Shooting Suspect

A drive-by shooting suspect may be staying in jail for awhile if the Hinds County District Attorney has anything to say about it. JPD tweeted May 27:

As is unfortunately too often the case, Jackson is well known to the police.  He has a string of arrests over the years as well as a felony conviction.   A Hinds County grand jury indicted him last fall for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  He posted the $5,000 bail and was released in January. 

Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Malik submitted a motion to revoke and deny bond to Senior Circuit Judge Tomie Green yesterday.   The motion states:

On Sunday, May 24, 2020, Defendant was involved in an altercation. Defendant was charged and arrested on May 25, 2020 for Aggravated Assault, Drive by Shooting, and Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling, JPD Case Number 2020-072892. On May 26, 2020 a Bench Warrant was issued for Defendant pursuant to Underlying Facts and Circumstances for Bench Warrant prepared and presented by Detective Jarron Carter. Defendant was given bond for the new charges in the total amount of $300,000 ($100,000 for Aggravated Assault; $100,000 for Drive by Shooting; and $100,000 for Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling). The Defendant is currently incarcerated in Hinds County. See attached "Exhibit 2".

The State requests that any prior bond granted in Cause No. 19-0-679 be immediately revoked, citing Article 3, section 29 (3) of the Mississippi Constitution of 1890, having been charged and arrested
with the new crimes of Aggravated Assault, Drive by Shooting, and Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling, JPD Case Number 2020-072892, on May 25, 2020....

On Sunday, May 24, 2020 at approximately 22:00 hours, Precinct One Officers responded to 906 Stuart Street in reference to a shooting.

Upon arrival officers spoke with the complainant, Kenzri Stanford, who had been shot once to the left butt cheek. Mr. Stanford stated he was sitting outside of his residence when a dark colored Chevrolet Tahoe came up the street. Mr. Stanford stated the driver side passenger fired several shots towards his residence, causing the residence to be shot approximately seven times. Mr. Stanford stated the passenger of the vehicle was, Cordero Jackson. Mr. Stanford stated Mr. Jackson is the boyfriend of his aunt. Mr. Stanford stated Mr. Jackson was shooting at his step son, Robert Thomas, after an altercation that Mr. Jackson and Sheena Stanford, the mother of Mr. Thomas, had.

Mr. Stanford stated the altercation first took place on Myrtlewood Drive, which is a few streets north of Stuart Street.

While on Stuart Street a call from dispatch advised that a subject shot at Merit Health. I responded to Merit Health where I spoke with, Cordero Jackson. Mr. Jackson stated he was walking up Belvedere Drive when he was shot in his left hand. Mr. Jackson was released from Merit and transported to Police Headquarters to be interviewed.

I had the pleasure to interview Mr. Jackson at approximately 23:11 hours. During the interview Mr. Jackson stated he had an altercation with his girlfriend, Sheena Stanford. During the altercation Ms. Stanford youngest son called Mr. Thomas to the residence. Mr. Jackson stated as Mr. Thomas was walking up the street he fired several shots towards Mr. Jackson. Mr. Jackson.stated he then ran inside to grab a .380 caliber handgun that belongs to Ms. Stanford and fired approximately two shots at Mr. Thomas.
Kingfish note: Nice to see our D.A. taking aggressive action against a shooting suspect.  Someone should point out to Shamsid-dunce that this suspect was out on bond when he allegedly shot the victim.

DA needs a probable cause determination by a court or indictment on new felonies to revoke a prior bond . Can't just claim he was arrested. Pretty clear in the statute. Just sayin

"How does one 'fire approximately two shots'?" They can count that high?

Wait...I thought convicted felons were prohibited from possessing firearms...did I miss something?

@ 10:20. Correct. Wont get a conviction any time soon and he's the one to set GJ meet for indictment.

$5,000 bond for a charge of felon in possession of firearm. So, $500 to a bondsman and he's out. It's past time for Jackson municipal judges to stop treating this charge like it's no big deal. Until they start cracking down on illegal firearm possession, they will never get the "illegal guns off the street" in Jackson, which is Mayor Lumumba's stated goal.

@9:57 AM - it's like when the media report that "the incident happened at approximately 3:37 PM."

That's not "appoximately," that is exact.

Approximately would be 3:35 PM, or 3:40 PM.

12:10 - maybe he meant 3:35 or 3:39?

"Defendant was given bond for the new charges in the total amount of $300,000 ($100,000 for Aggravated Assault; $100,000 for Drive by Shooting; and $100,000 for Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling). The Defendant is currently incarcerated in Hinds County". He will need to come up with $30,000 or get a Bond Agent willing to put him on a payment plan (better choice I'm sure and should not be allowed if legally possible). Don't see any charge for the Felon in possession of a weapon listed, even though, by reading the Motion, he admits to retrieving a .380 handgun.

re $300,000 bond

in addition, he could pledge as collateral T-bills, stocks, bonds or other negotiable securities in that amount.

12:45, According to the article, he was indicted last fall for felon in possession of a firearm and was released on a $5,000 bond last January. That is why he was free to be charged with all of these current crimes.

I might have been mistaken in pointing the finger at the municipal court on this one. Since he had already been indicted, it might have been the circuit court that set the $5,000 bond. I don't really know.

KF's point is that the ADA took an "aggressive position," which we should all welcome. All KF gets in response is nit-picking. Sheesh.

One thing we've needed around Jacktown for years is an aggressive DA's office. This could be a good sign.

if a bondsman writes a 300,000$ bond on ''payments''........the total amount owed will be about 15% or $37,000. the defendant then begins making payments of about $3000 a month to the bondsman.
lets say he manages to make about 3 monthly payments totaling $9000. then the money runs out, which is always the case.
when the defendant fails to make the 4th monthly payment, the bondsman simply picks up the defendant and surrenders him to the county jail and comes off the bond. AND NO, THE BONDSMAN DOESNT REFUND THE $9OOO THAT THE DEFENDANT HAS ALREDY PAID IN.

3:48 has just clarified why all bondsmen have bass boats and Tahoes.

Would be different under Ed Peters...

So...after all this conversational opinion, what's the outcome of it all?

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.
