A man and woman have been charged in a Christmas Day shooting on Irving Street.

Jerome Frank Suber, 35, and Latasha Ann White, 37, were booked into the Richmond County Jail Sunday on charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and two counts of aggravated assault. Suber has also been charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and White has been charged with possession of a weapon by a first offender.

Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said Maurice Holland and his girlfriend Lataisha Hill went to Suber and White’s Irving Street home for Holland to give a Christmas present to his son. Following an argument between the two men, police said, Suber and White pulled weapons and shot Holland and Hill.

Holland and Hill were transported to a hospital with gunshot wounds but have since been released.

Great job by the RCSO in

Great job by the RCSO in solving this case expeditiously. However, the RCSO or any police agency can only do so much as long as they continue to have to deal with repeat convicted felons in possession of firearms that should have been kept behind bars to begin with. Until we learn that some people will never be rehabilitated and that they are using up more tax dollars and placing others at greater risk by being in the public instead of being behind bars for the remainder of their life, incidents such as this will continue.

If you look at the cases that RCSO deals with, most are solved quickly and a majority of those arrested are REPEAT FELONY OFFENDERS. We need our judicial system to stop the madness and put them where they belong.

"We need our judicial system

"We need our judicial system to stop the madness"

What? And break up the judges little self-justifying merry-go-round. If they actually locked up the crooks, who's trial would they have next week? As long as they keep putting them back on the street the judges know they will always have a high paying job. It's a game people and the taxpaying citizens are just here to provide the refreshments.

Dichotomy, I'm not so sure

Dichotomy, I'm not so sure about that. I know personally one Superior Court judge, and am familiar with a couple more. I just don't see them considering their careers when passing sentences.

Everyone has an opinion, but

Everyone has an opinion, but you should know the facts before you pass judgement. When you have moved on, scorned lovers should
pay their child support, and go through the courts and get visitation
rights legally. It was not all about the christmas gifts.

"ole" jerome given probation

"ole" jerome given probation as usual, can't make any money if they are locked up. judges have to hand out probation so they can pay....its not about justice, its about making money for the probation system. a convicted felon with a gun..any bets "ole" jerome will plead not guilty, beg for mercy, claiming he didn't mean it and he learned his lesson will get a job and be a productive member of society. how many deaths will it take before the city government will make the committment to build more and bigger prison (for long-term storage) and for the judges to start handing out prison sentences instead of probation...its time for a 2-3 strike law
