Simmons Arraignment Contiued Until 2/4

The arraignment of Janice Simmons was this morning continued until 9:30 AM, Tuesday, February 4, 2014, in Second Judicial (Bienveille, Claborne, Jackson Parishes) District Court.

The delay was requested by Simmons’ attorney, Charles Kincaide, and approved by 2nd JD DA Jonathan Stewart’s office.

Presiding in court today was Division B Judge Jimmy Teat.

Simmons and Franciscus Jackson are alleged to have falsely testified in court that they witnessed an altercation between Willie Joseph and a citizen after an August, 2012 Jonesboro city council meeting. Joseph was at the time on trial for battery against the citizen.

A video introduced into evidence at the trial purportedly showed the two to be in another room at the time of the incident, and unable to directly witness the altercation, or lack thereof.

Last December, Jackson pled not guilty to the charge.

      Well, if it (the tape) has been “messed” with, she must be guilty as He**. Otherwise, the tape would be in perfect order and not messed with! BTW, care to elaborate about the tape being messed with? Could some people be arrested for tampering with evidence? We, bloggers, would like to know.

        i believe he was just saying that comment as if that is what simmons would use as an excuse. Go take a smart pill or maybe look up “sarcasm” in the dictionary!

          Re-read that blog. I should have recognized what he/she was actually saying. It is as plain as day. If it had been a snake, it would have bit me. Thanks to you, I can see clearly now. The fog has lifted. Excuse me for my “sarcastic” blog as you insinuated. At the time, I was serious. BTW, no thanks for your smarty advice to take a “smart” pill. I am at the top of my game. Unlike, what Mr. Don Fowler thinks of YOU!!!! from previous blog bickering back and forth between the two of you.

          • David Says:

            Oh, yes maam, it’s really important, to me, what you and Mr. Fowler think of me. I’ll probably lose sleep tonight. As far as being sarcastic, you just made my point. Make yourself useful and go to the shelter and save an animal today. Have a good one!

              David, I think you are the one that’s being sarcastic,nobody cares if you lose sleep tonight or not.So be a GOOD BOY and shut up. Please

              • David Says:

                Somebody cares if i lose sleep – And if you have no use for my comments, don’t read em. And, yes, “i’ll probably lose sleep tonight” was in a sarcastic tone. Now, you also do something useful and go save an animal. And get out in the sun. I just came in for a break, but it is wonderful outside, pale face.

                • Oldman Says:

                  You must be a Indian thief I mean Indian chief for calling me a pale face.It has been a wonderful day, let’s keep it that way.Have a good nite.
