Another Win for TGS Residents: Neighborhood Impact Statements and Court Advocacy Work.
Residents of Tower Grove South were represented at the bond reduction hearing of Devonte Addison who is charged with several counts of Robbery 1st degree and Armed Criminal Action, as well as Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Resisting Arrest. These crimes were committed in Tower Grove South on September 17th, 2014 in the area of Roger and Humphrey and another on Keokuk. Many residents remember these incidents, as the suspects not only stole the victims wallets and phone, but their pants as well.You can read more about the crimes here:
The Honorable Judge Mullen read the Neighborhood Impact Statement signed by residents of TGS and took it into consideration when deliberating the defendants request to lower the $200,000 cash only bond. The bond for Devonte Addison was not reduced and if, at any time, he is able to make bond a request for a Neighborhood Order of Protection will be obtained. A Neighborhood Order of Protection will state that Mr. Addison cannot enter Tower Grove South until the Order of Protection is lifted.
