Suspect in Overstreet break-in is denied bond

  • Follow Crime & courts

The man charged with breaking into Judge Carlisle Overstreet's home went to court Monday, joined by the man accused of a killing in Cherry Tree Crossing and a teen charged with setting off explosions in M&M Scott Apartments.

William Omar Jacobs was placed on probation July 1 for a cocaine charge, and he has criminal trespass and misdemeanor marijuana arrests dating back to 2008, the judge said.

All three were denied bond during their initial court appearances.

Wearing green jumpsuits and chains, Antonio Turner, 17; James Daughtie, 26; and William Omar Jacobs, 22, sat before Augusta Magistrate Judge H. Scott Allen at the Municipal Building.

Daughtie was arrested Thursday in the fatal shooting of Dontrell Kyler in Cherry Tree Crossing. Kyler, 25, who was shot several times, was a passenger in a car with 32-year-old Ozzie Brian Jones, who was wounded. Daughtie faces eight charges, including murder and aggravated assault.

Jacobs is charged with burglary Friday's early-morning break-in at Overstreet's Cumming Road home.

Overstreet shot 20-year-old John E. Howard Jr., of Blythe, who was pronounced dead at Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

After learning of a warrant for his arrest, Jacobs turned himself in.

The judge noted that Jacobs was placed on probation July 1 for a cocaine charge. He also said Jacobs had a criminal trespass and misdemeanor marijuana arrests dating back to 2008.

Allen said, "I find there is a strong likelihood you pose a danger to the community."

Turner was arrested Sunday and accused of detonating three "overpressure devices" made from household chemicals and plastic bottles in the M&M Scott Apartments on Spruce Street.

He is charged with three counts of manufacturing or transporting a destructive device or explosive, reckless conduct and obstruction of a officer.

He questioned the judge about his obstruction charge.

The judge said it was because Turner is accused of walking away from the deputy, and added, "That would be the least of your troubles."

I wonder if he would have been denied bond if he had broken into my home.

Good question, Indigo. If he

Good question, Indigo. If he appears before Judge Brown and if Judge Brown is consistent and if he pleads guilty, Judge Brown must sentence him to ten years probation plus time served.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that since Omar was involved in a Felony that resulted in a death, he should be charged with MURDER!!

You people who always have

Unpublished

You people who always have the "po' me's" are ridiculous. Jacobs is being handled appropriately and Judge Allen's integrity is beyond reproach. Do you think if Jacobs had broken into the White House he should be treated same as if he'd broken into the average Joe's home? I know Overstreet's house not same as the White House but where is the line to be drawn? How 'bout this ... if you want to have special treatment, go get yourself a great education and become a judge.

Let us get our terminology

Let us get our terminology straight. Howard was shot and killed, but he was not murdered. It was a justifiable killing.

Murder... no. But I bet with

Murder... no. But I bet with the right lawyers the Howard's family could sue him in Civil court for wrongful death. They would just need to convince someone that Jacobs coerced Howard into the attempted robbery. A stretch - but plausible.

Yeah, that would be real

Yeah, that would be real smart. Sue a 22-year-old burglar wanna-be for money damages. Good luck on collecting anything.

I detest criminal

I detest criminal activity.
Our society has been slowly downgraded from middle class America to
fearful citizens of our neighborhoods.
The police can only handle so much.
I admire the folks who protect us while we
work, play and sleep.
If one ran an analysis of officers in force
per crime, I feel sure it would reveal the hard work
of our officers in a real time.
Homeowners have the right to protect their home
from these people who can not handle
being a normal part of society.
Something wrong at some point in the family values
and education of these criminal humans.
I wish there was a less violent method of getting
the point of behaving across to criminals, but gunfire
seems to be the only thing the criminals understand.
Why do some wannabe gangsters drive old police cars???

i would like to pint out the

i would like to pint out the fact, that the poorest of the poorhave in fact become leaders of our country in our past history, some of our leaders never went to collage, back in the day ofsome great historical presidents, some never made it out of the 6th grade. What i am saying is where you come from or how you were raised does'nt make you resort to criminal acts.
It all depends on the individual themselves. You can have money and still be a crook, (Albany is full of them.) You can be abused and still make something of yourself(Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey) so come on people lets put the blame where it belongs......on the individual committing the
crime. GRANDMOTHER OF WILLIAM OMAR JACOBS
