In this episode of Magnum J.D., Magnum cops a “894” plea. A 4717 St Charles Avenue orgy update.

Due to enormous reader interest Team Slabbed made the trip to Division D of New Orleans municipal court today to get the skinny on the mid summer late night sex party held at Magnum’s place that we highlighted earlier this month. The entire experience was enlightening to say the least and we actually saw Magnum briefly before he took an 894 plea, which means that if he keeps his nose clean his record will be cleared in time. 

Though we were unable to get any reaction from Team Magnum I did have a chance to visit with Magnum’s neighbors who witnessed the various and sundry perversions that occurred in Magnum’s backyard and they again could not have been nicer to us.  They were satisfied with the outcome their criminal justice experience as once again they are able to sleep a full 8 hours undisturbed by loud moans from the neighbor’s backyard.

Of course there is more to this story as there is always more but frankly I am at a loss for words on how to describe “the more” as it actually is “less” but as I am also sensitive to the feelings of the parties involved. I tried to find a way to convey this concept to our readers but by golly there is just no easy way to describe the situation here.

Since we’re known for tackling tough subjects here on Slabbed and just like the subjects of depression and bi polar disorder that we’ve discussed at length here I will not shrink away from this topic as it is evidently a very important one for certain members of the Slabbed Nation.

  1. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooowwwwwwwwweeee Sop, how could you “get us up” to the “climax” of this inferred “cockamamie story of peniphobia in coitus interruptus” and then turn off and leave us “hanging”, as belmando1092 so “immeasurably” stated. My elderly Uncle wanted me to explain to him what all this means and I was afraid to tell him as I know he, always “hanging out”,would spring a “woody” right here in the rainforest in front of all the workers at the Non-Performing Arts Center.Please,no more teasing the SladdedNation anymore-OK ?. OOOOOOOOOoooowwwwwwwwweeee

  2. Sop_1,

    This post calls in to question how I view “reporting” done by bloggers. You see, after talking to other people who were present at court, I feel compelled to call a major error to your attention: J.H. didn’t plea to anything. The Court merely set a status conference, with the understanding that if J.H. doesn’t screw up again, the charges will be thrown out.

    Maybe you overheard another defendant pleading to an Art. 894 dismissal? Maybe you hate J.H. and that blinded your “reporting”? All I know is that your story is way off.

    FYI…I have never met JH before in my life and could care less what happens to him. I just wanted to call your attention to this error.

    1. Joe Cat if you read the post then you know I spoke with the neighbors. I reported what they told us.

      You’re not the first lawyer who contacted me regarding the discrepancy.

      Joe is I think the old saying about assuming applies to your remarks otherwise. Based on what I know about you that is a bit of a surprise but we’ve seen a lot of surprises since late 2007 huh?

      When I am done with the behind the scenes I’ll do an update,

  3. As a lawyer, I can tell you that courts do not “continue” criminal matters to a “status conference” to see if the criminal defendant stays out of trouble in the interim. You either continue a case to a new trial setting or you plead not guilty (in which case your case is tried, usually that same day in muni court) or you plead guilty (perhaps under Article 894) or no contest. I will put my money on SOP on this one, Joe Cat, since he was actually there! You, sir, were admittedly not.

  4. The only way to avoid a plea (G, NG or NC) is through pretrial diversion. No plea is entered and after certain time and conditions are met, the charges are dismissed. Art 894 requires some plea.

  5. imaangry,

    “As a lawyer,” you don’t think the Court has discretion to continue a trial for it’s first setting and set a status conference in hopes of resolution without trial? Really?

    More specifically, you have no idea what you are talking about regarding practice and procedure at Orleans Municipal Court.

    Finally, you want to put your money on SOP and the fact that Magnum plead gulity under 894 yesterday? Ok let’s do it. I will bet you $40,000 that he did not. Meet you in Section D (not division D) at 3pm. Bring a money order.

  6. Ha.

    This cracks me up.

    In Orleans, you mean to tell me big bad Magnum will see no hearing, hear no judge, see no rap?

    894 or otherwise, who cares. Let’s face it, his partner’s an ad hoc judge and we all know this all done ex parte and via “judicial notice” anyway. The question is just the facts, and thank Zeus we have SOP doing some actual reporting in this town.

    Be thankful, boys, this is the only way public information can become public in this town.

    My only question is have the neighbors dropped the charges or not? If not, then do you think Mr. Average Joe would get this treatment? How about the average guy living in backotown? What if it was Magnum making the complaint on HIS nieghbor, whether via 894 or wink-wink-nudge-nudge, do you think THEY would be let off with nary a sticky note in the file to memorialize? Uh, no.

  7. Until yesterday I had no idea what an 894 was so it is all new to me. There are only a few possibilities here folks including that the City Attorney hoodwinked the Siegels.

    I’ll add that to a layman, some of the comments seem like parsing words in the weeds. That said yesterday was number 2 all time behind Martin Feldman’s little financial conflict vis a vie the drill moratorium as we had over 4,000 mostly satisfied customers (mostly of the sophisticated variety). As always we appreciate your support.

  8. Magnum may not have plead to 894 but the complainants are going to be pissed when they find out since that’s what the city attorney told them. I smell a rat. And by the way Mr. BP, you’re right, I play law in big boy court.

  9. Where Sop_1 got his information from is irrelevant to my point that this post is totally incorrect, and by Sop’s own admission, he has known this for some time.

    Imangry, what is your point? Because you play in “big boy court” you don’t know that procedures in Muni court?

  10. Joe Cat where I got my information from is completely relevant and by your own admission you were not there so you don’t know if this post is correct or not at this point.

    My only admission is that there is an inconsistency that certainly bears looking into so I won’t let you put words in my mouth Joe.

    Tell me Joe what do you think of Magnum’s behavior that landed him in Muni court. The neighbors tell me he at first tried to steamroll them which is consistent with what I’ve been told by other people that actually know him, which by your own admission, you don’t.

    When you have a real point to make let us know.

  11. Sop,

    All you have to do is call the clerk, give him/her the case number, ask ask what the status of the case is. Its not very difficult. Your other option is to keep arguing that the errors in your post are “irrelevant.”

    I’m surprised your buddy IMA didn’t tell you that already.

    1. Joe Cat I am aware of what is showing in the record and I am also aware what we were told yesterday. If the Siegels were hoodwinked I imagine they will not be happy campers.

      So I am content to flesh out these issues and not rush to any conclusions until everyone has had their say. Why the bums rush Joe, don’t you want to know what happened?

  12. Let’s cut to the chase. Whether I do or do not know “muni court” is irrelevant to the original post.

    The neighbors, who called NOPD and who showed up yesterday, were told by the city attorney that the case was “over” since Magnum plead 894. That was not accurate according to you, Mr. Cat and Mr. BP. If that is the case, then there were grave misrepresentations to the complainants, but time will tell on that. If the matter was “continued” on the QT, I can see where the complainants would go on their merry way, satisfied that justice had been done, then the ole charges would be dismissed at the next trial date, when, oh, the complainants failed to appear. That does happen in muni court quite frequently, but not with the fix in. Again, time will tell.

    1. Since we are to the chase I’ll add that given that fundraiser Magnum held for Mayor Mitchmo over at his chicken ranch on St Charles I wondered why the City Attorney, which answers to Mayor Mitchmo didn’t step aside altogether.

      I for one am happy we get to explore these issues further as it means another post or two on the topic. Of today’s top 10 posts our Slabbed syndicated Magnum J.D. episodes occupy 7 of those slots including this post which is today’s runaway number 1.

  13. Joe Cat there was more going on in the Court than reported here. If I am accused of a crime I enter and leave Court via the front door. I don’t hang out in the rear of the Court and pop into Court merely for a few minutes via the same door the Judge enters. How about the accused here Joe Cat how was he treated by the Court? How were the victims treated? I didn’t see them wisk away via the Judges door. Nope they left like every accused in the Court short of the OPP confined. Via the front door. It gave the appearance that Justice was short on something that day… By the way lawyers only privileges when they are working not when they are in Court being charged with a matter. Ask Ashton he will tell you this…

  14. Have the neighbors filed an ethical conduct complaint? When you say “steamroll”, was there any indication the penis-challenged lawyer try to intimidate his neighbors by bragging about his influence over city officials or judges?

  15. The neighbors signed for and accepted a notice of the January date that the case was re-set to. The same notice that Magnum signed for and accepted.

    Before you guys continue the clueless speculation someone just go check the record, it’s all there so there’s no reason for the clueless theorizing and invention of scandal. Anyone can walk in and out of Court’s back door, the city attys office is back there and you can access the other court rooms through it.

  16. No and I doubt they will Mr NAAS. Their main goal was an undisturbed nights sleep.

    When you hear the same stories time and again from unrelated sources about how Magnum handles conflicts it really does paint a vivid picture of the man and not a flattering one I’ll add.
