Is anyone surprised?

Claiborne Frazier will appeal his sentence.  So Claiborne Frazier pleads guilty.  The judge gives him 60 months in jail, a $10,000 fine, and supervised release for three years.* Restitution per federal sentencing guidelines is to be determined at a later date.  Now Mr. Frazier files a notice of appeal this week in U.S. District Court. The order is posted below.

*This comment was published under the April 16 post.  Whoever wrote it summed up that day's proceeding rather nicely:

Judge Starett followed the federal sentencing guidelines to the letter. Based on the stipulations made by the government (amount of monetary damages, and the level of the sentence recommendation agreed in the plea agreement) the Judge gave the top in of the recommended sentence. Guidelines were for 41 to 63 months; Jude imposed 60 months.

All you armchair quarterjudges should get your facts before you start suggesting an investigation of the judge!

Left out of KF's post is that there is still a restitution sentence to be done in a few months. Also, there are a number of civil cases yet to be settled.

Selection of facility is left to the Bureau of Prisons; suspect likely facility will be Pensacola (close to family). Report date is July 14th. Hope he 'enjoys' life for next 90 days - after that, he ain't going to like Thursdays!

Yawn. Dead horse beating.

Perhaps he thought that he deserved more.

Does the appeal delay the date he must report to prison?

Does it change anything else?

@9:22 Rarely have I seen the first comment with some much win.

Has the Claiborne Frazier vs James B. Reynolds III lawsuit reached a conclusion?

How are his father C. E. in N. ureCarolina prison and brother Austin in Florida prison doing?

Of course no one should be surprised. The attorney who entered the appeal notice is not even the attorney who represented him day of sentencing just 2 weeks ago! How many attorneys can one convict go thru?!?

That might partially depend upon how well one pays them I suppose. Almost enough to wonder if someone was asking inappropriate and freaky questions about

@12:12 agree that 9:22 wins. Unfortunately a comment with less win must have been hiding ahead of 9:22 in the queue.

Folks, I've known Claiborne all my life and I promise you this isn't going to end well.....

@3:45 Do you mean to imply full restitution won't be happening in a timely fashion?

1:42 - who is the newest attorney?

Zack Scruggs pleaded guilty and then appealed. The outcome here will be the same. Pack your shaving kit and transistor radio.

4:27 the attorney representing him in the appeal is Jule Anne Epps. Don't her but hes just prolonging the inevitable. Not sure what he thinks is gonna happen but your right 3:45 this will not end well. Can an appeal of a sentencing end up with the defendant getting mote time?

Was Austin in the prison in Pensacola that had storm damage with 2 dead and 150 injured this week? Claiborne will do anything and everything he can to beat the system. At least Austin and CE "manned up" and accepted their sentences.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
