Calvin Brown, Jr., of 2 Hampden Court in Charleston, has been charged with two counts of Attempted Murder and one count of Possession of a Firearm During a Violent Crime. His total bond was set at $2.5 million. We suspect it won’t be long before a wishy-washy circuit judge reduces that significantly. Brown was involved in the shootout that wounded and paralyzed five year old Tyreik Gadsden.
We are told Brown’s nickname is “Calico”. They should love that in the big house. Brown has rather sparse criminal history, which just means he had the good luck not to get caught as often as his father did.
2006 Charges (Charleston County):
PWID Crack Cocaine - Reduced to PWID Cocaine by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced by Judge Thomas “Felon’s Friend” Hughston to a YOA term not to exceed 1 to 6 years.
PWID Crack Near a School - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
2011 Charges (Berkeley County):
Possession of Meth/Crack 2nd Offense - Reduced to 1st Offense. Sentenced by Judge Kristi Harrington to 116 days time served. As you can see from the record, Brown was given a personal recognizance bond and bonded out of Hill-Finklea the same day he was arrested. Judge Harrington apparently isn’t very good at that whole math thing. That is common with judges in the 9th Circuit.
When you look at who Brown was actually shooting at when he paralyzed Tyreik you will get a clue as to why these two thugs were involved in that gunfight. Desmond Lewis, of 132 Romney Street was also shot by Brown. He refused to cooperate with the police. Well, until after Brown was arrested. At least that is what we are hearing from our street sources. Lewis has a ton of pending charges and was locked up this weekend on charges of Distribution of Crack and Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm. His total bond is set at $75,000.
Lewis was free on multiple bonds when he was shot and when he was arrested on Friday. In June of 2013 he was charged with Attempted Murder and Possession of a Firearm During a Violent Crime. Lewis had shot his brother in the back at a home on Charlene Drive in North Charleston. Lewis initially had a rather high bond, but along came Judge James “Rainbows and Unicorns” Gosnell the following month who reduced the total bond on both charges to $25,000.
Lewis went right back to his criminal endeavors. In July of 2014 he was charged with Distribution of Crack Cocaine, Distribution of Cocaine and Possession of a Controlled Substance. He was given a total bond of $37,000 and released from jail a week later.
Now, a five year old is paralyzed because these two drug dealing sack of crap could not come to an amicable agreement over drug turf of drug money. Or maybe the shooting was just over someone getting “mean mugged”. That’s really all it takes with these simpletons and to hell with whoever gets in the way.
