Rapist of Prison Employee Gets 30 Years

 Madison-Rankin District Attorney Bubba Bramlett issued the following statement. 

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Bubba Bramlett announced that Ernest Mayfield, an inmate at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF), was sentenced to the maximum allowed, 30 years, day for day, for sexual battery by Circuit Court Judge Steve Ratcliff. 


Mayfield, a habitual offender with two prior convictions of Methamphetamine possession, was given the maximum sentence possible by Judge Ratcliff.


On September 17, 2021, Mayfield, who had only recently been booked into the CMCF a few days prior, broke into a female employee’s office at the correctional facility and sexually assaulted her. 

The case went to trial on April 30, 2024. During the two-day trial, the State called the victim, multiple forensic experts, and other witnesses to the stand before the jury returned a guilty verdict.

District Attorney Bramlett stated, “I appreciate all the hard work from both my office and multiple law enforcement agencies to secure a guilty verdict in this matter.  We are glad to put this lifelong habitual criminal in prison for the next thirty years.”

Imagine if Hinds County/Jackson had law enforcement.

Hinds and Jackson each have law enforcement that is actually decent. Jody Owens is trying cases and gets convictions. But then, Winston Kidd, Faye “how did Robert Smith ever beat me” Peterson, and Adrienne Wooten get involved and an arrested, convicted felon gets six months probation for his sixth felony in three years along with an apology from the Court for imposing such a lengthy sentence

Someone needs to mentor this young man, give him some love and rehabilitate him. (spoken like a true liberal)

So inmates at this facility roam around with no supervision?

Reminds me of Madison County incarcerated Lawyer Gilmer attacking a female who brought him his lunch tray. Those in charge of these institutional settings have an absolute duty to protect people who are in proximity to these perverts and whackos.

Females have NO PLACE in a men's prison.

Lackadaisical guards and a breakdown in protocols. Who was monitoring the inmate?

2:23 adding no windows or panic button, incident waiting to happen and sadly it did! Contact Morgan and Morgan, a law suit usually gets real attention!

That's an extremely beautiful young man. absolutely perfect face, and a thick bull neck. ...such a waste. He could be facing a life of making someone very happy - or several someones: a wife, two mistresses, and several down-low regulars (if the Rankin County Blue Collar Contractor Model were in-play: it seems to keep a lot of somebodies happy, for the most part).

Instead, he's going to waste-away in prison. If Jackson leadership had not been so focused on flying to Paris and dining at Char, maybe community leaders could have recruited him into a career pipeline of some sort. Someone looking forward to earning a good living, is less likely to make stupid choices. Career paths can, and should, start in adolescence. Instead, media glorifies negative life trajectories.

There are several Jackson men's groups attempting to provide the sort of "wrap-around" mentoring young men need. It's a pity one of those groups could not have saved this one.

This individual, and thousands of others like him, are the product of incentivizing and rewarding people who produce children but never parent them. It is not the place of society, government, or anyone other than the parents of children to instill in children the morals and sense of right and wrong that are vital for a working society.
It is not the place of public education to instill morality and civility. That should have been done long before a child reaches the age to begin attending school.
Failure of the family is the precursor to the failure of a society.
Failing to instill morality and an understanding of consequences for actions has led to the current explosion of animalistic criminals plaguing us now.
Talking about a problem without putting forth a suggestion of a solution is simply whining, so here's this:
Put in place some draconian social restraints that will no longer allow for irresponsible individuals to procreate.
Stop subsidizing this practice. Stop feeding able bodied people who refuse to feed themselves. Let some of them starve and do without for a while.
No tax payer funded assistance should be greater than what an individual can make working a minimum wage job.
Stop allowing non productive persons to vote. If you don not contribute, you shouldn't have a say in how things are done, and you surely should not have a say in how taxpayer money is spent.
Earn your right to vote and help decide how things are done.
End pandering for the votes of the people who are wrecking our society.
I could go on, but that's probably enough for now.

@10:47 - those are terrible solutions that are worse than the problem. State mandated sterilizations and earned voting privileges are about as anti-America as it gets. Why do you want to turn this great country into China?

Not China,
Just a viable nation with sustainable rules.
If I remember, when this nation was founded it was only landowners who had the vote. We progressed, for the good, from there. We have passed the point of progression for the betterment of our society.
It is no favor to anyone to promote sloth and irresponsibility.
Our nation is quickly approaching the point where there are more citizens who do not contribute than those who do. Increasing the tax burden of those who are productive to support those who are not, simply to pander for the votes of the nonproductive, is a recipe for disaster.
Yes, earn the right to vote. Provide something of worth to the country you live in, put some skin in the game. Join the military, etc.
Those who simply have their livelihood provided to them, who do not earn their way, should not have any say in how things are run. For clarification, I am speaking of those who could work, but choose no to.
How many children that a person is not able to support should the productive segment of society be responsible for? An unlimited number?

@ 11:13
Just as an aside, I resent being called anti-American. I have shed blood, my own and that of our enemies, both here and abroad, in the defense of America.
I see our working people struggling under an unfair tax burden that is, in large part, used to pander to the non working and non productive.
I, and a lot of others who have worked long and hard, paid our taxes and served our nation, are afraid of seeing our great nation implode under the yoke of insurmountable debt. A debt that in large part is money that was spent to pander to those who do not contribute.

Like it or not, 1:23 is right.

But we are a nation that would much rather virtue-signal than be actually do the hard work to be virtuous.

And until being virtuous becomes monetized, no elected official will ever support any portion of it.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am tired of all the fancy talk about "making society better and - spend time and have discussions with your children." I don't care if he was purple, pink or blue......or if the next one is purple or blue. Arrest them, convict them, put their butts in jail and move on to the next "misunderstood" person....arrest, convict, and put his/her butt in jail.

Why do we have to pay for this animal to be fed and housed for 30 years?

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.
