Frazier update: Postponed

U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett was scheduled to sentence Claiborne Frazier this morning.  However, Judge Starrett reset sentencing for April 16,  2014 at 9:00 am.  Mr. Frazier apparently obtained the services of attorney Dennis Horn and sought continuance.

So let's get this straight.  Mr. Frazier reported to court in March for sentencing.  Cynthia Stewart filed various motions on his behalf and took most of the day.  Judge Starrett was ready to pronounce sentencing but it was late in the day so he postponed sentencing until today.  There were motions to continue filed but they were filed under seal.

it's beyond comical now. he knows he's going to jail & i can just visualize him squirming like a little baby at the thought of it. it's NOT going away claiborne, you ARE going to jail so you're really making it worse on yourself to continue these games. just gives you more time to squirm.....get it over with already

Is anyone surprised? Claiborne will continue to change attorneys for this reason. This is the third or fourth attorney. Each time the attorney asks for time to prepare. What's to prepare, he pled guilty. How much longer will the judge be patient? If they do sentence on the 16th of April, I hope he isn't given any time to report, but will be taken into custody. He should have his affairs in order by this time.

I DON'T KNOW, LOOKS LIKE HE KNOWS HOW TO PLAY THE SYSTEM AND THE JUDGE IS LETTING HIM DO IT. HE IS PLAYING THE JUDGE LIKE HE PLAYED EVERYONE ELSE.

I saw hiim at Barnette's getting blonde highlights and a Karatan treatment for summer...or maybe for prison. I doubt the stylist at the prison will be as good as the colorist at Barnette's

Legal experts: the defendant has plead guilty, and already unsuccessfully tried to withdraw that plea. Now he just retained a new lawyer.

Question: what can the new lawyer possibly do, besides attempt to convince the judge to issue a shorter/lesser sentence? Isn't that literally all that any lawyer could possibly do at this point?

The new lawyer could argue that the guilty plea was the result of ineffective assistance of counsel from the old lawyer. It's a delay tactic more than a successful argument.

Has Austin or C.E. been sentenced yet?

Let him withdraw his guilty plea.

Since Austin and CE no longer have 5th Amendment objections, they will be compelled to testify against him.

What makes you think Austin and CE would be honest if they testified?

Anonymous said...

Yes C.E got 4 years with 3 years probation after time served. Austin got 51 or 52 months I believe with 3 years probation as well

This makes you wonder if the judge is granting all these continuances but not really liking having to do it. IF that is the case then he could get more time than he might had got had he just accepted the first judges sentence. Looks like serious jail time to me by the way hes acting.

Thank You for letting me know about the sentence. I have been looking on the internet, but have not seen any recent updates.

No problem but kingfish actually had post addressing sentencing. Credit is actually on kingfish reporting..... Thanks for staying on this story

6:20 Mr. Fish has failed to report details about CE's sentence, as well as Austin's. CE's sentence has been reduced by Judge Starret and was NEVER FOUR YEARS as reported here. Four is DOUBLE what the true sentence is. I guess reporting exaggerated details gets people all pumped up and makes them slap themselves on the back and hate on people who made a mistake. CE made a serious mistake and Mr. Fish should report everything about this case when it happens, not just the crap that gets people all riled up.

7:44. Kingfish has failed to report post sentencing updates. Why do you think that is?

Kingfish said...

I reported CE got 31 months. That would be less than three years. i changed the post, my mistake.

I'm sorry. When there are so many Fraziers getting convicted and sentenced all the time, one gets them confused from time to time.

Kingfish said...

The original sentence in PACER said 40 months as you damn well know. Nice try, Mr. Frazier.

Mr. Fish, Mr. Frazier (CE I presume you are addressing) doesn't read your blog. His sentence was reduced and no big red banner ever rolled through your blog announcing it. I think it would be fair to your readers who are seeking information about this fiasco and the sentencing of each of these defendants to have all of the information. This will all shake out differently for each one of them, as it should.

I missed post that sentence had been reduced so my bad. 2 years or 4 years doesn't really make a difference. They're all 3 going to jail where they deserve to be. That's what gets folks "riled" up sir

As a victim of over $100,000 from this band of 3 - I know I will never see the money but rather than focus on that - I think a good start for those defending them on this board would be to encourage them to post an apology. The world is a forgiving place - but it starts with "I am sorry". Until all of the victims of their life style and choices hear those words people will continue to be riled up. I dont hate the Fraziers - what I hate is what they did to so many people - with apparently zero remorse. But that is their choice.

How did you expose yourself to a 100k loss?

exjxnres said...

To April 8, 2014 3:03. The previous post was not mine, but I can testify as to how many people were "exposed" to a $100K loss. They were in the contracting business and exposure to large sums of money is a common occurrence during the daily course of business. One or two months of delayed payments can easily mount up to $100K or more. Unfortunately, the Fraziers were experts at avoiding payments on time, and sometimes, not at all.

You are not self employed, but rather work for a wage. If you have not had ever been exposed to $100,000k loss, you are not making money as being self employed. Payroll is very week. That is just one exposure. Do not be stupid!

Your right, I don't work in the construction business, but my w2 for this year was in the mid 6 figures. So, all is well...

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.
