Mychal Bell back in jail

A LaSalle Parish Jail ordered Mychal Bell to the Renaissance Home for Youth in Alexandria for 18 months. The judge ruled that Bell violated his probation for  previous juvenile offenses, according to CNN. 

Carol Powell-Lexing, one of Bell’s attorneys, said the judge’s decision would be appealed.

Bell was freed on $45,000 bail on Sept. 27, after an appeals court threw out his conviction on battery and conspiracy charges in adult court and remanded the case to juvenile court.

But Judge J.P. Mauffrey agreed with prosecutors that Bell had violated the probation he was given for four previous juvenile offenses, including two simple battery charges, the sources said.

Bell had been placed on probation until he turned 18.

  1. CERTAINLY THE 10 MONTHS IN JAIL SHOULD COUNT AS TIME SERVED. THE SAD THING IS ALL THESE STUDENTS HAVE MISSED OUT ON THEIR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION AND COLLEGIATE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE RECRUITED. WE TO DO AWAY WITH THE JUVENILE INJUSTICE SYSTEM MONITORING PUNISHMENTS IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AND PUT PADDLING BACK IN ALONG WITH PRAYER. THE JUVENILE SYSTEM DOES NOTHING OTHER THAN TO CORRUPT THE LIVES AND OPPORTUNITY FOR REHAB DOES NOT EXIST IF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM PENALIZES THE STUDENTS THROUGH THIS ORGANIZE INJUSTICE – JUVENILE COURT PROCEDURES.

  2. The time he has already served only counts against one charge. Since the four prior convictions were separate incidents, the time cannot ordinarily be served concurrently.
