My comment: {maybe had he killed someone, He would have been allowed out on appeal bond}

Ex-MSU football star again denied appeal bond for drug conviction

Associated Press

An appeals court has refused to release former Mississippi State University football player Dontae Walker from prison while he pursues an appeal of his 2005 drug conviction.

Walker was convicted in 2005 on charges of possession of more than an ounce of marijuana and possession of more than an ounce of crack cocaine. Walker was sentenced to three years in prison with a $1,000 fine for the marijuana charge and 22 years behind bars, also with a $1,000 fine, for the cocaine charge.

State Court of Appeals Judge T. Kenneth Griffis, in an order filed Tuesday in Oktibbeha County Circuit Court, denied Walker an appeal bond.

In January, Circuit Judge Kim Kitchens also refused to allow Walker out of jail while his case is on appeal.

According to trial testimony, Walker was riding in the car of Shaundrayus Frazier, a convicted drug dealer out on probation. Frazier testified that when he picked up Walker, the defendant carried a purple bag with him.

That bag was later found hidden under Walker's seat, filled with drugs.

Defense attorneys argued the drugs belonged to Frazier.

Walker was indicted on drug charges in 2003, then ended his college football career ninth in school history with 1,875 rushing yards.

Walker had played for the Birmingham Steeldogs in the Arena Football League

More from me:  Under Current Mississippi Law, How does it seem right that this man had to sit in jail awaiting his appeal but my step mother was allowed out of jail to await her appeal. Perhaps someone needs to address that there are some serious problems with Justice and its approach, I wish I had the strength to address it but currently all I have is the ability to sit home read this shit and get mad as hell.
