Preacher Killer Accomplice Gets 40 Years

 Hinds County District Attorney Jody Owens issued the following statement. 

Hinds County District Attorney, Jody E. Owens, II, announces a sentencing has been issued in the matter of Cause No. 19-0-796 and 19-0-799, State of Mississippi v. Morgan Quinn for the January 2019 death of local Pastor, Antonio Longino. 

Quinn was charged with two counts; capital murder, which was reduced to second degree murder and aggravated assault. 

Judge Tomie Green sentenced Quinn to serve forty years with ten years suspended and five years of supervised probation in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Quinn was also sentenced to twenty years for the aggravated assault charge which will run concurrently with count one. 

District Attorney Owens stated “Pastor Longino’s murder was a horrendous act and a great loss to the community. Pastors should be able to unlock the church doors on Sunday morning without being murdered. The citizens should know that Quinn is the third defendant to be sentenced for this crime. Wherein each defendant has received a minimum of thirty-five years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. The women and men of this office are working tirelessly to ensure violent crimes as such are prosecuted to the fullest extent.”

We need the death penalty. That is the only thing that will stop this nonsense.

With earned time credit, this guy will get out in about 15 years. Smh.

"We need the death penalty. That is the only thing that will stop this nonsense." Seriously doubt that. Don't see the death penalty as a deterrent. It will surely stop the one being executed from killing again, but I'm sure the ones killing accept the possibility of death themselves. Don't believe a rational reasonable adult will kill to kill as our non rational non reasonable brethren seem to do without pause. Don't get me wrong, we don't use the death penalty enough, but it will not deter.

11:25, we have the death penalty and even have the option of using a firing squad. I suppose the AG has to push for administering the sentence to those convicted.

To all the naysayers, I guarantee you if we fry each and everyone of these murderous, spineless, no conscience having assholes the other spineless, no conscience having assholes will take notice.

Second degree murder is a day for day crime. He will do 30 years.

"To all the naysayers, I guarantee you if we fry each and everyone of these murderous, spineless, no conscience having assholes the other spineless, no conscience having assholes will take notice." Yes they will, but the spineless, no conscience having assholes will not miss a step going forward. How can someone with no conscience care.

Definition. Lack of Conscience - Individuals who suffer from Personality Disorders are often preoccupied with their own agendas, sometimes to the exclusion of the needs and concerns of others. This is sometimes interpreted by others as a lack of moral conscience.

@2:30 I wish I was as smart as you think you are....

Well, the recidivism rate is 0 when capital punishment is implemented. And the taxpayers' cost of housing them for 30 years and retrying them 5 or 6 times goes to down as well.

The argument that capital punishment is a deterrence to future crime is a weak one at best. However, that doesn't mean we shouldn't use it for capital crimes. What @5:36 said is very true.

5:36 a.m., you are correct that the cost of incarceration goes down when capital punishment is implemented--only if we ignore the Constitution and implement it before the trial begins. The studies are numerous and exhaustive. Capital punishment is faaar more expensive than merely housing someone in prison for the same amount of time.; If you want to take away the trials, the appeals, the lawyers, the investigations, etc., then you can decrease the cost of the death penalty. With each Constitutional right taken away, you increase the risk of error for wrongful convictions and death penalties. When an innocent person is convicted wrongly and executed, then we just have the State ganging up on an individual and bullying him to death--for no reason other than we want retribution for some other perceived wrong--when the dead guy didn't even have anything to do with the first wrong. The guys in this case apparently ganged up on the pastor and killed him. You would have us (as members of the polity) gang up on someone chosen by prosecutors and kill him. If we're going to do that, let's at least have some rules that we follow that limit the potential for ganging up on someone wrongfully. And, if we have those rules, they will cost money to follow. But, we have laws, and they should be followed. Right?

10:17. Please supply a link or two regarding your statement about costs being lower for long term care of a prisoner. I agree it may be lower IF all appeal processes etc. are abandoned and it is straight lock up, but if carrying out sentence after one appeal was the norm, I'm not convinced. Honest and open discussion please.

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.
