Suspect Charged in May 30 Robbery

Meridian police detectives have charged 37-year-old Ernest R. Mosley, Jr., with one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault. The arrest related to an incident reported around 11 p.m. May 30 in the 1000 block of 24th Street.

Mosley is alleged to have robbed a male victim at gunpoint, then fired several shots, one of which ricocheted off a nearby vehicle, striking the victim in the head.

However, the victim was not seriously injured. He was treated and released from a local hospital a few days later.

Mosley is currently being held at the Lauderdale County Detention Facility without bond, because officials say he was on bond for a previous felony arrest at the time of this incident.

The MPD will present the case against Mosley to the Lauderdale County grand jury, either in November or the first session of 2011.

    Anon, you need to let the netlingo go & stop the name calling. This is inappropriate. Take consideration for Stanley Mason, his sister & family. Not everyone has embraced netlingo & some never intend to do so (such as I, for it is a subculture). And, yes YOU have taken it away from the real issue of sympathies for the family. Sister, I have lost family members to violence so I do understand what you're going through. No one ever was caught for the death's of my brothers. Let it go & don't be bitter, that will cost you in the end. I wish I could be there for you - I am in my prayers.

    I am so sorry I have devoted so much time and energy in trying to get these narrow minded no life ppl who have out dated views to get a better understanding on what's modern..It has taken away what's the real issue here and that's a young lady who has loss a brother and to add insult to injury that thug was able to be release and cause more prob..Mrs. Hudson my prayers are with u; u have suffered a tragic lose. The horror of losing a love one by homicide is overwhelming and as u mention he was shot 6 times..But u are doin the right thing bring it to the public attention put it back on the judge who didn't see the life of ur brother being taken as a priority that he set such a low bond. Be at the trial let them kno u aren't goin away.. Time heal all wounds and it will this one to hang in there

    I don't like strawberries & this isn't the place for netlingo. AND, I'm not from or for 'bama & definitely NOT backwoods, thank you The proper word English is capitalized because it is a nation & a language. My original post was just for the sister & not to go any further. "Sister" I hope you get resolution & justice. I'll keep you in my prayers. Main thing is I pray that you get "peace OF mind,"

    I guess the judge thought he couldn't make bail @ $4K. Either way, he shouldn't have been on the streets. I understand your loss & sympathize with your feeling of lack of justice. And, To "me" just because you text that way & talk that way, doesn't mean it's not proper English. It just shows your lack of education or your care of your lack thereof. It doesn't matter what age anyone is, nobody likes talk & writing that way, especially in a proper setting such as the comment section of an online TV forum. Yes, I agree it's not about color. It is about a mistake & now making it right.

    The bond was only $40,000. He needed only 4,000 to walk. He was out in no time. It was unfair to me.I had to see my brother lying on the ground lifeless( full of bullet holes) and then wait 1 week to find out who murdered him. nor you were you the person who had to prepare him for burial and look into his daughters eyes and tell them their father was dead. The bond was to low for a murder. My brother was unarmed. Ernest Robinson did not have a just cause to murder my brother. It is left up to the judge to set the bond. If it was the judges brother do you really believe the bond would have been a measely 40grand?

    It's up to the judge to have a detainee held "with or without bond" or how much bond is set. Do you know how much the bond was or whether or not it was high or low? Has he been charged or had a trial on the murder of Stanley Mason? Then it's up to the courts to sentence him or let him go.
