Jena 6 – Mychal Bell might be out soon

It appears that Mychal Bell may be out of jail soon. The DA has decided not to appeal a judges decision that Mychal should have been tried as a juvenile.

Also, Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco meet with Martin Luther King, III, Al Sharpton and others yesterday.


From WaPo:

Gov. Kathleen Blanco, with Martin Luther King III and the Rev. Al Sharpton at her side, announced Wednesday that she had spoken with Walters and asked him to reconsider pushing to keep the case in the adult system. She said Walters told her he had decided not to appeal the ruling.


Bell, who remains behind bars, was one of six black Jena High School teens arrested after a December attack on a white student, Justin Barker. Five of the six initially were charged with attempted second-degree murder, though charges against four of them, including Bell, were later reduced. One teen has yet to be arraigned, another was handled as a juvenile and records are sealed. (more…)
