Judge Tomie Green gives more blessings

Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green gave yet another criminal her blessing.  Sentobia was convicted of armed robbery and auto burglary in 2016 yet did not serve one day in prison thanks to Judge Green's participation in the Hinds County catch & release program. 

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Sentobia Paige in June 2015 for breaking into a Ford 150 and stealing some goods.  Paige is 26 years old. The case was assigned to Judge Jeff Weill but somehow wound up over in Judge Green's court.   Judge Green sentenced him in July 2016 to serve seven years in prison but ordered him to participate in the RID program.  She re-sentenced him on November 17, 2016 to probation for three years and suspended the seven-year prison sentence.  She also ordered his immediate release.  She ordered the sentence to run concurrent with his sentence for his armed robbery conviction.

Armed robbery, readers ask? Yup.   The grand jury indicted Paige in May 2014 for using a gun to steal a cellphone from the victim in March.  This crime took place before the auto burglary crime.  Perhaps he should get credit for moving down from armed robbery to auto burglary.  It is so rare when these thugs downgrade their crimes. 

 Judge Green sentenced Paige to serve ten years for the armed robbery BUT suspended all ten years of the prison sentence since he completed the RID program.  She ordered his immediate release and placed him on probation for three years. 

However, Paige is now guilty of two felonies.  He can be classified as a habitual offender upon a third conviction.

There will come a day when the people have to take justice into their own hands. We are hoping that law enforcement in surrounding areas will take notice of any Hinds county tags in their area. Maybe the criminal elements can be limited to the area most call home.

Something about this case (and others as well) doesn't pass the smell test. There are too many thugs getting away with little or no consequences for their crimes. There needs to be a full scale investigation by the feds into the finances of the "catch and release" judges. Follow the $$$!

I don't think the RID program existed when these sentences were imposed.

Rumor is that Judge Green's boyfriend has an ankle monitoring company. That could explain this to an extent.

If someone really wanted to make a difference in Hinds County they'd get Green and Kidd off the bench. They are bad for both public safety (releasing criminals) and businesses (civil cases).

Actually, 12:20, it should be "few or no consequences". But I agree with you. Someone seems to be protecting Jackson's CRIMINAL FOOD CHAIN.

Who was the judge who reduced the bond of the murderer that killed 4 more times after he was released?

Who's paying the kickback? said...

When he murders someone, Miz Tomie Green should be arrested and charged with accessory to murder

If judges can suddenly on a whim change verdicts and sentences, then we need to change the law.

Surely, someone brought this case to her attention again and gave her an excuse. Did he agree to testify against a " bigger fish"? Did this have to do with the lack of jail space and needing to put away someone more dangerous? Was there new evidence and a risk of a new trial where he'd go free?

What changed? And, if nothing changed, I say again, judges shouldn't have the ability to just change the outcome without some legal basis to do so.

if RID was still in operation then, armed robbers are not eligible

after the "term of court" ends, the judge has no jurisdiction to change a sentence, verdict, or grant a new trial.

you can blame Judge Green's conduct in part on the Mississippi Supreme Court. they are cowards and have often turned a blind eye to her abuse of office.

As mentioned on the previous thread: Police departments and the courts/judges (often) reflect the expectations of their communities. Those who attempt to do otherwise are treated like Ferguson, MO.

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.
