Four teens and an 11-year-old were arrested Oct. 30, accused of the intrusion in Grovetown.

At a bond hearing Friday, Superior Court Judge Albert Pickett set $20,000 bonds for armed robbery charges against Nicholas Dwight Blodgett, 17, of Magnolia Parkway in Grovetown, and Mario Lavache Jones Jr., 17, of Milledgeville Road in Augusta.

The armed robbery bonds are in addition to bond charges automatically set for certain offenses. Bonds for them total $90,200 for Blodgett and $85,300 for Jones.

They are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center on charges of burglary, attempted armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Jermaine Marcell Jones Jr., 14, of Murphy Road in Augusta; Antonio Marquette Davis, 15, of Floyd Street in Augusta; and Zion Howard, 11, of Augusta, are being held in the Regional Youth Detention Center on the same charges.

The intrusion occurred just before 2 p.m. Sunday in Lake Royal subdivision off Old Belair Road. A resident said intruders threatened her at gunpoint.

They are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center on charges of burglary, attempted armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime - In a real judicial system where violent criminals were treated correctly, the judge would have simply said NO BOND, Next Case.

Sorry, but those arrested for crimes of this nature, kidnapping with a handgun, etc. don't deserve to walk our streets if a prelimary hearing reveals enough evidence.

We MUST get tough on violent criminals of any age.

Maybe next time they will

Maybe next time they will choose the wrong house, and the homeowner will be judge, jury, and executioner. I am afraid that this is the only language that these criminals, and their ilk, understand.

Asitis....let's just guess how long the juveniles will be confined. That is, if they havn't been released already.

Patty, unfortunately, you are

Patty, unfortunately, you are correct as usual. Juvenile Justice is no justice at all.

Asitisinaug, Once again

Asitisinaug,

Once again you're right.

JJ isn't about justice. It's about politics. Ask my friend and neighbor Judge Bill Sams who was forced out in a reconfiguration of the Juvenoile Court bench several years ago. Unfortuntarely for Bill and our troubled kids, Bill's his own man and not "The Chief"'s man.
