Hey now she was 16 but she looked 17. Yep Mississippi frowns on any type of child exploitation. Add to the fact the perp was police and the guys lucky he didn’t get real time. Not sure just what the age of consent is in the state but 15 years isn’t out of the norm for this type offense.

I'm not condoning this guy's behavior, but isn't 16 the age of consent in Mississippi? If so, then why was he being investigated?

Sentenced for destroying evidence of his involvement with a minor. But, when will he be sentenced for his actual involvement with that minor?

Too many decent, employed hard working professional women in this area to choose from! This officer was in a position of authority! We don’t know the whole story!

This bad criminal behavior will happen again. JPD Command Staff has to set the example!

30 months? What a joke. I guess it’s a miracle a police officer was held accountable at all since they are above the law. These thug cops and their enablers in the prosecutors office are destroying any chance that the community at large will respect their profession.

There are hundreds of old jerks right here in Mississippi who should look back on their past exploits with a "hot young chick" and thank their lucky stars they didn't get an orange jumpsuit and a jailhouse boyfriend. Just lucky.

On age of consent, the fact that he was in a position of authority raises the standard.

Coleman was sentenced for hindering an FBI investigation, basically.

The charge was obstruction of justice
He destroyed conversations and actions and it never said anything about sexually activity only communicate
slap on the wrist for him taking away 2 years of his freedom not worth it
The lesson is leave these girls alone way to many women his own age he could be communicating with and wouldn’t be caharged

7:19 - Women his own age would have the expectation that he could actually perform. A girl child wouldn't.

@6:28- I remember when it was shameful for women to have ridden the carousel. But now so many just grow old with their wine and dogs to keep them company.

Not excusing Mr Coleman’s behavior, it’s a culture at Some departments that this shigity is normal and overlooked until one gets caught! Mr Coleman got caught! However you spin the situation on what he did or was found guilty of, it was wrong and against the law.

Mr Coleman was communicating with a minor without the parents being present. ( whatever you can say to a child, be able to repeat to it to the parents).

I know its not hard for some of these old fools to want to talk to these young girls and get a little giggle. They need to take their old ass home and talk/play with their wives or at least someone close to their own age!

To all the white shirts/brass teach the young bucks the appropriate way to behave while protecting the public. Y’all have too many other problems with policing than messing with these babies.

When Mr Coleman gets out, get him over to the Department for some training other officers on Police procedure when dealing with underage youth!

I got to go now, my wife to calling me to come get back in the bed. I’m 66 and she’s 60. I’m living the dream!!! She is cute too!

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.
