Update on the case: Charges reduced for another ‘Jena Six’ member
Monday morning, Robert Bailey Jr. pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy to commit the same. A trial date of Nov. 26 was set, although Bailey’s attorney, Jim Boren of Baton Rouge, said he planned to seek a continuance as he needs more time to prepare for the case.
All together, six teens known nationally and internationally as the “Jena Six” — Bailey, Jesse Ray Beard, Mychal Bell, Carwin Jones, Bryant Purvis and Theo Shaw — were originally charged with attempted murder following the December incident at Jena High, which left student Justin Barker unconscious and bleeding with facial injuries.
Bell was convicted in June of the reduced charges and denied bail last month after four prior juvenile adjudications were presented in court. Charges against the others charged as adults have been reduced as they’ve been arraigned. Information about Beard’s case is unknown, as he is the only one charged as a juvenile.Also Monday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson joined Bell’s parents — Marcus Jones and Melissa Bell — for a juvenile proceeding regarding his charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated second-degree battery. – click here for more
