Shyrome Johnson has been charged with Obstruction of Justice in the 2011 Charleston County murder of five year old Allison Griffor. Apparently he knows something about the case and has been lying to authorities. No bond hearing until tomorrow.
Johnson was charged in 2011 in Charleston County with two counts of Forgery. Those charges were dismissed when the feds picked up the cases. No word on the federal outcome.
Johnson was also arrested in Dorchester County in 2014 on a charge of Criminal Domestic Violence High & Aggravated. That charge was dismissed in April of 2015.
Let’s hope we see a few more arrests in this case of the murder of an innocent.
A recent brawl at a Family Dollar store on King Street has led to the identification of CTL alumni Tor Akil Gregory as one of those who damaged merchandise during the fight. Gregory was actually in our “to-do” queue due to some updates on some of his pending cases and another arrest from May.
The last time we profiled Gregory he had two counts of 2nd Degree Assault & Battery pending. Those charges were cleared when the 9th Circuit Solicitor dismissed one and pled the other down to 3rd Degree Assault & Battery. Gregory was sentenced to time served.
When Gregory was on the run last time he was facing charges for engaging in a car chase with police while he had a child in the car. One charge of Failure to Stop for Blue Light and Child Endangerment were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor, possibly because they were duplicate charges, although each shows different indictment numbers. Gregory plead guilty to one charge of Failure to Stop for Blue Light and one charge of Cruelty to Children. In spite of the fact he had already received a YOA sentence in 2009, Judge Brooks Goldsmith sentenced him to another YOA term not to exceed 6 years, suspended in favor of 3 years probation. Gregory got 1 day time served on the Cruelty to Children charge. And you thought we were joking when told you cruelty to children gets you less time than cruelty to animals.
While he was out on bond on the above charges Gregory was arrested again in June of 2014 on a charge of Distribution of Crack Cocaine. He plead guilty and received the same sentence as above, concurrent, of course.
Six months after being sentenced to probation Gregory was arrested again. On May 28th he was charged with Distribution of Crack Cocaine and 2nd Offense Possession of Marijuana. He was released the next day on a total bond of $60,000.
Now he is back at it fighting in stores and tearing up property. Probation works, alright.
Trenton Lamar Gathers was also identified as being a participant in that brawl.
Gathers has a criminal history in Charleston County dating back to 2012.
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
Conspiracy to Violate SC Drug Laws - Plead guilty. Sentenced by Judge Roger Young to 60 days time served. Gathers actually only served 17 days until his initial bond was lowered by Judge James “Rainbows and Unicorns” Gosnell.
Possession of Cocaine - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor because the lab found no narcotics were present in the sample.
2nd Offense Possession of Marijuana - Pending. Free on a $5,000 bond.
Possession of Cocaine - Pending. Free on a $5,000 bond.
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Pending. Free on a reduced and consolidate bond of $50,000 thanks to Judge James “Rainbows and Unicorns” Gosnell.
Possession of Meth/Crack - Pending. Free on the same consolidated bond as above.
2nd Offense Possession of Marijuana - Pending. Free on a $10,000 bond.
You folks at the Family Dollar be sure to let Judge Gosnell know what a great job he is doing. Right after you clean up that mess and file your insurance claims, of course.
Young Gunna gang member Damion Brown was arrested in May and charged with four counts of Attempted Murder. His total bond has been set at $400,000. We are sure that will probably get lowered by some kindly judge sooner than later. Brown, aka “Say Nomo Dblack“, fired into a vehicle occupied by four people on Bream Road back in April.
Yeah, we know, hard to believe those Young Gunna gang members would shoot anyone, right? Because, you know, the shooting at the mall and the shooting of an innocent women on Ashley Phosphate were just aberrations.
Authorities have arrested Byron Kinsey who had been on the run from a murder charge the past few months. You can see his criminal history in our March article on him. He is charged with the March 10th murder of Robert Crumm at the Cedar Key Apartments.
Typical violent behavior here in the Lowcountry. Maybe someone can answer a question for us. If the prosecutors and judges in the Lowcountry are so damn racist, why are all these violent black felons still roaming the streets and raising hell? Kinda shoots that claim all to hell, doesn’t it?
