Ex BF gets 45 years for beating woman

Madison-Rankin District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following statement:

Jackson Man Receives 45-Year Sentence for Aggravated Assault and Burglary of a Home in Ridgeland

    Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that Jackson resident Dexter Maurice Gilmore received a 45-year sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and burglary of a home in Ridgeland.

    On February 10, 2016, the Ridgeland Police Department was called regarding a victim who came home and was assaulted by an intruder hiding in her home. 

The victim advised law enforcement that she arrived home around 6:30 p.m. and went to the bathroom to use the sink.  As she was washing her hands, she looked into the mirror to see Gilmore standing behind her holding a rock in his hand.  He struck her several times to be point where she lost consciousness.  When she awoke, Gilmore dragged her through the house and told her repeatedly that he was going to kill her.

The victim was able to escape to a neighbor’s house where law enforcement was called.  The victim told officers that she had a past relationship with Gilmore after meeting him at work.  She also advised officers that Gilmore had been stalking her. 

The victim’s identification of Gilmore matched fingerprints that were recovered from the scene.  Gilmore was arrested and confessed to breaking into the home and assaulting the victim.

Guest stated, “Gilmore is a career criminal with three prior felony convictions from Hinds County including a conviction of aggravated assault.  Our message to career criminals is very simple.  Do not come to Madison or Rankin counties and commit a crime without the full knowledge that you will be apprehended and prosecuted for your actions.”

Guest continued, “While violent crime is continually on the rise in Jackson, the people of Madison and Rankin counties will not tolerate it.  We will be diligent in keeping our citizens, our homes and our property safe from Jackson-based crime.  The law-abiding citizens of our counties deserve to live safely in their homes without the fear that criminals, like Gilmore, will break in and assault them.  I promise that my office, law enforcement and the courts will work to ensure that our communities remain safe from violent crime.”

Gilmore has a record which contains three felony convictions in Hinds County:

•    In 2001, for the possession of cocaine where he received a one year sentence.
•    In 2002, for the possession of cocaine where he received an 18-month sentence.
•    In 2007, for aggravated assault where he received a ten-year sentence.

    District Attorney Michael Guest was sworn into office in January 2008 and represents the Twentieth Judicial District, Madison and Rankin Counties.  For more information regarding the District Attorney’s office, please visit, follow us on Facebook and download our app, da guest.

Looks to me that this criminal could have gotten a life w/o parole sentence since one of his prior is a violent felony. I suppose the prosecution agreed to the lesser habitual sentence as part of a plea bargain. 45 years day for day is a pretty stiff sentence

strong case with a confession, violent criminal history, qualifies for BIG habitual = life without any possible release other than governor, and they give him a plead deal. How Hindish....

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.
