Bond, No Bond in Murder of 14 Year Old

Update: JPD arrested and charged Siyaski Crawford with murder as well.  Crawford is 15 years-old. 

The accused killer of a 14 year-old Northwest Rankin Middle School student was denied bond yesterday in Jackson Municipal Court.  However, his alleged accomplice received bond although it was set at a mere $1.5 million.

JPD charged Maxle Mooneyham with tampering with evidence/obstruction of justice.   A JPD affidavit states: 

A Jackson Municipal Court Judge set his bond at $1.5 million.  He must stay at home unless he goes to school.  However, Mooneyham is no longer enrolled in the Rankin County School District.  The defendant is 16 years old.  

The Court denied bond for John Foote after JPD charged him with murder.  The police affidavit alleges Foote

White boy got 1.5 mill bond while black guy sits. White boy has to wear an ankle monitor while he can go to school NE Rankin, gotta get that Full Ride, and while at home. Black guy sits. Am I missing something. Why no conspiracy to commit a felony?

That seems like a smart decision. A "kid" accused as an accomplice to murder and participated in the cover-up can only be at the house or a place where hundreds of law abiding students are located.

Charged change between arrest and indictment all the time. I suspect we will see an accessory after the fact charge or indictment at some point.

Can't deny bond for obstruction in most cases

2:18 "white boy" at this time is not charged with murder. "black boy" at this time is charged with murder.

Different crimes, different charges, different bonds/no bond. Not quite sure where you see the difference in 'race' as being the deciding factor; last time I checked , neither of the code sections that are cited in the indictment mention anything about 'race', just what the action was.

But nice try - I'm sure the SPLC will be glad to have you join their team since you can find 'race' anywhere.

The kid was no longer a student a NWR High School, I think he was at one time and was sent to the Alternative school and then dropped out altogether.

A little trivia said...

To be accurate, unless a shotgun was used, they are "bullet casings," not "shell casings."

One more time since you’re a little slow on the reading comprehension. Mooneyham does not attend ANY school in the Rankin County School District. Nor is he enrolled in any school in RCSD.

Missisippi is number one in another category - most juvenile murderers.

So, to recap: He either killed or was an accomplice to the killing of a fourteen year, the solution is to put him right back in the close presence of hundreds of other fourteen year olds.

Will his bracelet, if he wears one, ensure his civil disposition? You know damned well he will be armed at school.

Reading comprehension: Mooneyham is Not enrolled in school! Can anyone read?

Anonymous said...

@ 10:09 - At that age, Mississippi law requires that he attend 'skool'. And people must obey laws.

Please tell me you're aware of that law without telling me you're not.

6:18, there are also laws against murder and being an accessory. That there is a law doesn’t mean that everyone obeys them. Mooneyham isn’t enrolled in school in Rankin County. Whether he is enrolled is a different issue from whether he should be allowed in regular school under the circumstances. Whether he is in violation for not being enrolled is irrelevant to the fact that he isn’t enrolled. He simply isn’t enrolled. That the law requires enrollment doesn’t mean he is enrolled.

@6:18 Homeschool is an option also. People unenroll students from public school all the time.

Please tell me you are aware of all options without telling me your not.

I also appreciate "people must obey laws" on school enrollment while commenting on a thread about murderers.

He is enrolled at Alternative School as of late. If you read the articles all 3 arrested boys as well as the deceased were peers at alternative school.

White kid was driving car… black front seat passenger and back seat black passengers pulled guns on each other. Shooting started. White guy pulls off road and runs Hears more shooting… after it stops goes back to vehicle. Body on ground. Hauls ass and cleans out blood and casings after being threatened to do so or else.

According to JPD police chief the shooting occurred inside the vehicle. I can’t believe that the driver approved of this happening inside his vehicle.

Driver could have called police or asked someone else to if they didn’t have a phone when exiting the vehicle but chose to go back instead. Pretty much shows the driver was not in fear for his own life.

Anonymous said...

Where guns are involved, the driver wouldn’t be in the position to approve or disapprove the shooting occurring in his vehicle.

Wasn't there a case in Michigan where parents were charged for their child's crime? Is that going to become a thing that starts happening? Can the parents be charged in MS for a Minor's crime?

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.
