Exposing the criminal element for 3 years

Another Media Failure

The local media is making a lot of hay about the recent arrest of Timothy Montez Wright by CPD. He was charged with Trafficking Cocaine (262 grams = 9.5 ounces) and PWID Cocaine Near a School. He was given a total bond of $100,000 by Judge Linda Lombard. That isn’t a lot of money for a guy holding 9.5 ounces of cocaine to come up with, especially in light of the bond financing practices we have recently been made aware of. This relatively low bond is also kind of amazing because of the angle the media is hyping with regard to Wright. Keep reading.

So what has the media all stirred up? Well, at the time of his arrest Wright was out on a $150,000 bond for an attempted murder charge. It seems he pistol whipped a guy and shot him twice back in February of 2013. He bonded out two days after his arrest.

Chief Mullen issued a press release which all the stations are running word for word without doing any further investigation. Good thing you have Charleston Thug Life to give you the real news. Keep reading.

Chief Mullen hyped Senate Bill 19 in his press release. We are sure he probably did this in concert with Scarlett Wilson. That would explain why the full details about Wright were not released.

Would it surprise you to find that Wright was charged with Murder in 2003? Would it surprise you even more to find out the 9th Circuit Solicitor pled that murder charge down to Manslaughter? Be honest, you really are not that surprised are you? We tried, but couldn’t find any details about that case on the internet.

As we go through his criminal history, note the name on the database entries. From 2003 to 2013 he was “Tim Montez Wright”. With this latest arrest he is “Timothy Montez Wright”. If you go the database and type in the latter name, you would not find the entries under the former. 

Let’s look at Timothy (Tim) Montez Wright’s criminal history in the 9th Circuit.

2003 Charges:

PWID Crack Cocaine - Pled guilty. Sentenced to 12 years by Judge John Breeden.

PWID Crack Near a School - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Resisting Arrest - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Murder - Pled down to Voluntary Manslaughter by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced to four years (concurrent) by Judge Breeden.

Unlawful Possession of a Pistol During Commission of a Violent Crime - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Wright’s 2004 charges, which he incurred while out on bond for all those 2003 charges, were settled on the same day as the 2003 charges.

2004 Charges:

Distribution of Crack Cocaine - Pled guilty. Sentenced to 12 years (concurrent) by Judge Breeden.

Distribution of Crack Cocaine Near a School - Pled guilty. Sentenced to 10 years (concurrent).

PWID Crack - Pled guilty. Sentenced to 12 years (concurrent).

PWID Crack Near a School - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

Assault & Battery With Intent to Kill - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.

So, Wright was sentenced to a total of 40 years for killing someone and selling drugs, but since the sentences were set to run concurrent, his max time was 12 years. Well, not really. He only had to served 85% of that. He was out of prison and committing more crimes in 2011.

2011 Charges:

1st Degree Burglary - Dismissed at preliminary hearing by Judge James Gosnell. No reason given.

So, what do you think? Was Chief Mullen trying to gloss over Wright’s previous record? What would be the reason? Well, it would be rather hard to score points with the public by pointing out the benefits of SB 19 (supported by the 9th Circuit Solicitor) while also telling folks how Wright received a sweet plea deal from one of the solicitors he has teamed up with in pushing the new legislation.

We have already addressed Senate Bill 19. You can find our initial examination of the legislation HERE. The only truly effective part of the bill back then was the provision for an additional five year sentence for those who committed additional offenses while out on bond. That provision was stripped from the bill in 2013.

Compare the text of the bill we initially commented on with the current text of SB 19. You will see just how badly your legislators have gutted the original. As you can see from the current text, The bill will change nothing. At the moment, the decision to revoke a bond lies with the judges. When this bill passes, the decision to revoke a bond will still lie with the judges, who will use the same factors they now use to make their bond revocation decisions. 

The new SB 19 states the judge must determine if the defendant will comply with conditions of his bond. So……what exactly is different from what is happening now? Absolutely nothing. SB 19 is just another do-nothing, make legislators look busy, worthless piece of garbage.

If regular citizens (with a bit of common sense) can read the legislation and see how worthless and ineffective it will be, why can’t the lawyers pushing the tripe? Well, they want you to think they are actually doing something to address your concerns. However, they wouldn’t pass legislation that actually makes it tougher on them or their clients once they leave elected office and jump back into private practice representing the Timothy Montez Wright’s of the state of South Carolina.

Don’t forget, your “press release” media, with no desire to actually investigate and report the truth, are complicit in the deception.
