Teen charged in YDC homicide doesn't show up at bond hearing

  • Follow Crime & courts

A teenager accused of murder at the Youth Detention Facility did not appear for a bond hearing today.

Assistant District Attorney Kimberly Easterling said she wasn’t sure why Michael Everidge, 17, wasn’t present and court security staff had no reason, either.

Keiondra Everidge said outside the courtroom that she has received no information from the Department of Juvenile Justice about the circumstances around her son’s murder charge. She received a “hysterical” phone call from her son last Thursday saying he was being charged with murder, but he had to hang up after four or five minutes, she said.

Everidge immediately went over to the detention facility on Mike Padgett Highway, but said she was told her son wasn’t there and that corrections staff wouldn’t tell her where he was. She hasn’t spoken to her son since last week.

“I don’t have any answers,” said Everidge. “But I would certainly like some.”

Uh-oh. This doesn't bode

Uh-oh. This doesn't bode well, all 'round. Red flags are flying up in my mind's eye.

Not very well organized I

Not very well organized I would say - what else is there to be uncovered?
Seems that there is no end to what's ailing Augusta and Richmond County - and the State!

I really like how this

I really like how this article fails to mention anything about the defense attorney? How did he even get a bond hearing if his attorney didn't request it? Why doesn't his attorney know where he is?

I will agree with the mom's

I will agree with the mom's statement that she believes they are covering up something. This kid knows what's going on behind closed doors. They don't want him to talk to his mom or probably anyone else. I wouldn't doubt that there is something foul about this whole thing and I pray for the youth at this facility.

Where in the world is he?

Where in the world is he? Don't they have the responsibility at the center to get him to court?

A more innocent explanation

A more innocent explanation for his failure to appear: Incompetence at the YDC-Augusta.

The real question is, if he
Unpublished

The real question is, if he is accused of murder, what is he doing still at YDC? I can see thgis poor child now, 250 pounds 6foot 6 inches tall. Poor thing only is accused of murder, we should take pity on him and provide the best legal defense team the taxpayers can afford. P.S. Does the YDC still outsource to the lowest bidder or are they working on a no bid contract?

No, the real question is...Do

No, the real question is...Do officials know where the boy is? If he is incarcerated, it isn't his responsibility to get himself to the bond hearing. As a mom, I would demand to see him, pronto.

Did the folks at the YDC-A

Did the folks at the YDC-A inform in writing the people at ASMP where the accused was being held that the accused had a court hearing yesterday?
