September 19, 2014 AP No Comments

Authorities in southwestern Illinois on Friday searched for a second man charged in connection with an Alton shooting death.  Prosecutors in Madison County charged 38-year old Bruce Bradley, of Fairview Heights, Thursday with three counts of first-degree murder, and one count of armed robbery, armed violence and unlawful possession of a weapon.  Another suspect, 33-year-old Antione Parker of Belleville, already is charged with murder in the Sept. 6 death of 39-year old Melvin Hayes, of St. Louis.  Police said Hayes’ body was found behind an abandoned home.  The county’s state’s attorney, Tom Gibbons, said Parker was not the gunman but was charged based on accountability for his role.  Parker has pleaded not guilty and remained jailed Friday on $1 million bond.

September 19, 2014 AP No Comments

An execution date has been set for next month for a man who killed a south-central Missouri mother and her two children. The Missouri Supreme Court on Friday set an Oct. 29 execution date for 35-year-old Mark Christeson. It would be the ninth execution in Missouri this year and the 11th since November.  Christeson was sentenced to death for killing 36-year-old Susan Brouk and her children, ages 12 and 9, in February 1998. The bodies of the victims were found in a pond near their rural Vichey home.  Christenson’s cousin, Jesse Carter, was sentenced to life in prison after agreeing to testify against Christeson.

Missouri town’s judge creates ‘shame corner’  

September 19, 2014 AP No Comments

A judge is giving residents of a small central Missouri town a chance to choose public humiliation over jail time for some legal problems. Municipal Court Judge Richard Skouby of Belle says his new policy allows offenders to spend two hours standing on a downtown “Corner of Shame” holding a sign describing their offenses. They still have to pay fines but avoid a contempt charge.  KRCG reports the judge says the Maries County town has a serious problem with people not showing up for court.  Belle City Marshall Joe Turnbough says the policy is mostly for people who don’t make court dates or don’t pay municipal fines on time.  He says reaction in the town of 1,500 has been mixed but more people are paying their fines on time.


Several Arrested in Prostitution Operation

September 19, 2014 AP No Comments

Several men and women were arrested during a prostitution operation conducted by the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department.  Detectives say they receive several complaints of prostitution in the area. In response to the complaints, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department posted an ad for services on a common website, similar to how other previously arrested prostitutes had done.   On Wednesday September 17, within thirty minutes of the ad being posted, an undercover detective began receiving phone calls and texts from individuals wishing to pay for sexual acts. Eight men were arrested for soliciting prostitution as well as other offenses within approximately four hours.  Then, on Thursday September 18, detectives arrested four men and one woman. The men had all arranged to pay an undercover detective for sex acts, and the woman agreed to performing sexual acts for money with an undercover detective.  Men arrested for solicitation of prostitution were: 45-year-old Bryan Rodgers of Paducah; 46-year-old Patrick Massa of LaCenter; 24-year-old Kentrell Thomas of Clinton; 41-year-old Aaron Storey of Bardwell; 59-year-old Jeffrey Webb of Anna, IL; 40-year-old Danny Underwood of Puryear, TN; 21-year-old Michael Foster of Murray; 34-year-old Brian Northern of Jackson, TN; 44-year-old Devin Hopkins of Harrisburg, IL; 28-year-old Phillip Wyatt Jr. of Kevil; 34-year-old Joseph Uhls of Sesser, IL; and 47-year-old Joel Brindley of Paducah.  40-year-old Michelle Bowland of Murray was arrested for prostitution.   All were booked into the McCracken County Jail.

Kingree dismissal request is denied; lawsuit upheld

September 19, 2014 Local No Comments

Daily American Republic

An appellate court has denied Rocky Kingree’s request to dismiss one of the civil suits against him that challenge his qualifications to become Division II associate circuit judge in Butler County. Kingree filed two petitions for “writ of mandamus” Friday with the Court of Appeals, Southern District, against Presiding Circuit Judge Fred Copeland of New Madrid in cases brought against him by Butler County Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Barbour on behalf of the state and attorney Chris Yarbro on behalf of Associate Circuit Judge John Bloodworth. In his petition, Kingree asked the Court of Appeals to order Copeland to dismiss both cases, which seek to keep Kingree, who is Carter County Prosecuting Attorney, off the Nov. 4 general election ballot. The appellate court then issued an order Sept. 12 giving the attorneys until 5 p.m. Monday to respond to Kingree’s petitions. After the responses were filed and reviewed by a three-judge panel, the court denied the petition for writ of mandamus late Monday for the case filed on Bloodworth’s behalf. No order had been issued by press time in the case filed by the Butler County prosecuting attorney’s office.
