The conviction of Mychal Bell has been thrown out of 3rd District Court of Appeals. The judge stated that some of the charges should been brought in juvenile court. The second degree battery charge has been let stand.

It appears that Jessie and Al were not asleep at the wheel. They have planned a March in Jena for September 20th.

Update: A little history for those who aren’t familiar with this story. more here and here.

And a day late to the party is the Mainstream Media. Mychal Bell has been in Jail since December. Democracy Now had an excellent story on this back in July. In August the WashingtonPost had a story on A03. The NY Times didn’t think the story was needed covering, I guess. The first reference that I could find was today.

Update II: Video Added.
