Initial reports indicated that the suspect was using the Crime Stoppers tip line, the Department of Children and Families Hotline, and the cyber-tip line with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to make false reports of sexual and physical child abuse against the complainant. The investigation revealed the suspect, Tawny Blazejowski, 39; St. Augustine, continually reported false crimes against several victims in an attempt to impact their personal and professional lives. In all, six victims were identified as being the target of Blazejowskis harassment. During the investigation, detectives located evidence to support Blazejowski was using various means to allegedly threaten and extort her victims. In April 2013, Blazejowski was arrested and charged with two counts of extortion (released on $100,000 bond). Thursday, deputies arrested Blazejowski for extortion, aggravated stalking (4 counts), and making false reports to the Department of Children and Families. She is being held with a bond Totaling $20,000.00.

In the case of Trayvon Martin, a white man (clearly the aggressor in this incident) shot an innocent, young black teenager who was returning from a 7-11 grocery store in Sanford, Florida. A Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman (Trayvons murderer) was innocent since he was acting in self defense under Stand Your Groundƒ.Yet in Jacksonville, Florida, just over an hour away, Marissa Alexander, a young black mother who had been abused repeatedly by her husband, fired a warning shot into the air because she feared another attack. Marissa, however, was not allowed a Stand Your Ground defense during her trial and was sentenced to a 20 year mandatory minimum jail sentence, even though she had no prior offenses, and was a hard working woman with an advanced degree who contributed to society. Certainly, if ever there were a case where Stand Your Ground should apply, it would have been that of Marissa Alexander! A documented victim of domestic violence, Marissa was sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison merely for firing a warning shot into the air. Again, this woman did not hurt anyone, yet may now not be able to hug her children for twenty years. And I think it is important to note Marissas husbands threatening words just minutes before the incident: if I can't have you, nobody is going to have you.Ž Indeed, millions of abused women have heard those harsh words. Abused women like Marissa, who has a masters degree and no prior record, need support and counseling so they dont find themselves in these situations to begin with. Arresting and prosecuting her when no one was does not make any sense. And beyond a doubt, mandatory minimum sentences just make Floridas already broken system even more arbitrary and cruel. What was certainly absent from the courtroom during Marissas trial was mercy and justice. Indeed, the three year plea deal from Angela Corey is not mercy, and a mandatory twenty year sentence is not justice! In accordance with North Florida State Attorney Angela Coreys goal of being a tough on crime prosecutor, over the last four and a half years, Ms. Corey has tried more male juveniles as adults than any other county court in the state of Florida. And she also has tried a much greater percentage of black male juveniles as adults than the rest of Florida as well. In the five year period between 2006/7 and 2010/11, across the state of Florida, an average of 52 % of black male juveniles were tried as adults for crimes they had committed (direct filing), which is extraordinarily high -and Ms. Corey tried an average of 70%!! Interestingly, the state of Florida overall during the same time period tried a mere average of 25% of white male juveniles as adults for crimes that they had committed, while Angela Corey tried an even lower average of just 18%. As Martin Luther King said, The Arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. We all need to place tremendous energy in ensuring that our justice system is working for people of all races. In this effort, all citizens need to become activists. Although we have made great progress, there is still a very long way to go.Ž Ytkvg"c"Ngvvgt/Ocmg"c"Rjqpg"Ecnn"vq"{qwt Hnqtkfc"Uvcvg"Ugpcvqt"cpf"{qwt"Hnqtkfc"Uvcvg Tgrtgugpvcvkxg0 Vgnn"vjgo"vq"ecnn"c"urgekcn"uguukqp"vq"ocmg"vjg pggfgf"ejcpigu"qp"vjg"Uvcpf"[qwt"Itqwpf"Ncy0 CWIWUV"39."4235Young African American Male Shot: Murderer Acquitted, Young Female African American Fires Warning Shot in Self-Defense: Sentenced for 20 Years PhotographybyPaulFigura

PAGE 4THE STARAUGUST 17, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome .Michael and Marsha Dean Phelts hosted a fundraising event Under the Blue Bottle TreeŽ at their American Beach home for the Capital Campaign Project of Friends of the Library (FOL) at historic Fernandina Beach. The goal of the FOL campaign is to secure extraordinary gifts and pledges of $1.2 million by December 2014 to support renovations to the existing 35-year old facility. Marsha, a former librarian and contributor to The Florida Star, pledged to further support the campaign with an endowment to the librarys Genealogy room which will be named in memory of her mother, Eva C.

Family and friends casually chatted and noshed on an assortment of amazing hors doeuvres which included shrimp (a beautiful shrimp tree arrangement, no less!), deviled eggs, ham sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, spinach balls, meatballs, candied pecans, peppered pecans, vegetable platters, libations (Roz cucumber splash was a refreshing delight), desserts, and more. The pleasant ocean breeze with the magnificent Atlantic as a backdrop made for an enchanting affair. Boy was I bummed to discover that the table settings of orchids and bottles of sand and seashells marked with FOL labels were not party favors for the taking! Kudos to Deloris Gilyard, Bill and Ann Jennings (such beautiful orchids), and Jesse and Virginia Mealing for the elegant displays. The American Beach Pit CrewŽ, as Marsha lovingly refers to a special group of neighbors and friends who pitched in to assist with arrangements ( Beverly McKenzie and Ron Miller helped invitees with parking and getting to the house in Beverlys golf cart), raised $10,000 at the event.

PAGE 6 THE STAR AUGUST 17, 2013 Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia Star As an African American newspaper, we basically report on offenses committed by African Americans. Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this ar ea. Citizens with tips are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and become eligible for a reward. MISSINGCHILDREN Name: Cassandra Boneta Age: 14 Weight: 108 lbs Last seen: 7/29/13 Name: Keshauntay Cunningham Age: 16 Weight: 125 lbs Last seen: 8/01/13 Name: Willnesha Forman Age: 15 Weight: 130 lbs Last seen: 8/01/13 Name: Aalyhiai Sealey Age: 15 Weight: 120 lbs Last seen: 8/06/13MOSTWANTED Name: Darius D. Curry Offense: Felony Battery Name: Jonathan Lamont Conyers Offense: AggravatedBattery on Pregnant Victim Name: Elijah Dabney Offense: Attempted Robbery with Gun, Escape from Prison Property Theft There is a difference between Robbery, Burglary, and Theft. When you report a crime to 911 or a police officer, the language you use makes a difference. BURGLARY When someone enters physical property, not his or her own, without permission, with the intent to commit a crime. The crime could be to take belongings from the property (i.e. theft), or against a person within the property (i.e. assault). This could be a residence (residential burglary), a place of business (commercial burglary), a detached storage shed or garage (also residential), or even a public storage unit or storage yard (also commercial). It doesnt matter if force is used to gain entry, if someone was home at the time (in the case of a residential burglary) and it doesnt matter is something is stolen. The unlawful entry of the property with intent to commit a crime is burglary. For the record, most residential burglaries occur during the day, (when people are away at work) and most commercial burglaries occur at night (when the site is more likely to be vacant). THEFT Whenever any property is taken, that is theft. Shoplift (taking something from a store without paying for it), auto theft and auto accessory theft (car stereo/CD player) are examples of theft. One form of theft frequently happens when we go shopping and we leave our belongings (purse, backpack, wallet) unattended. While were busy looking on the bottom shelf for the least expensive oatmeal, someone has taken the purse or backpack, or taken something out of the purse or backpack (wallet, cell phone) without permission, or knowledge, or direct threat or actual use of force. No one implied a threat or used force to take it from you; no one entered your home or place of business to get it; it was there and they took it. Thats theft. ROBBERY The physical taking of property from another individual by the use of force or the implied use of force. Some examples: A woman walking down the street when someone comes up from behind, grabs her purse off of her shoulder and runs away that is a strong-arm robbery, better known as a purse snatch. If a man is walking down the street and another person comes up to him and says, "give me your wallet," while showing a knife or other weapon, that's an armed robbery, whether the weapon was used or not. The physical taking of another persons property through force or implied use of force is robbery, whether a weapon is used or not. Use or implication of a weapon just helps us categorize the "type" of robbery. Safety Two People Shot in Front ofRestaurant At 3:05 a.m., police were dispatched to an Applebees restaurant in reference to a shooting. Two individuals were located with gunshot wounds. Investigation revealed that the business closed at 2:00 a.m. and a group of people continued to hang out on the benches in front of the business. An unknown suspect approached the group and asked for money. One individual in the group gave him $2.00. The suspect began to walk away and then turned around and displayed a pistol demanding their wallets and phones. The individuals in the group told the suspect that they didnt have any money for him. One victim stood up and the suspect shot him in the chest. The other victim was sitting on the bench and was shot in the chin. Three days later, detectives identified the suspect as 22-year-old Anthony Lamar Simmons and his identity was released to the public. A dual shot of the suspect was distributed to the public and the media showing a recent booking photograph and his unique chest and stomach tattoos. Within a few hours of the public notification, the suspect was arrested and charged in the case. Anthony Simmons Woman StagesAbduction to Get Money from Mother A woman was reported missing and held hostage, but it was later discovered that the abduction was staged. At 2:40 p.m., police responded to a residence in reference to a missing person, Shannon Nicole Campbell, 30. Upon arrival, officers made contact with a family member of Campbell stating they had been receiving text messages from her that concerned them. The text messages stated Campbell was being held against her will by an unnamed individual because she owed money for drugs. The suspect told the complainant to transfer $2,000 via Western Union to secure Campbells release. The suspect advised via texts that if the money was not sent, she would be killed. While conducting the investigation, the complainant continued to receive repeated texts from Campbell. Some examples of the text messages were, "she could not leave, that 'he' would put a needle in her arm with 'molly' or heroin and make her life worse". In another text message, she stated, "I can't leave, save me", "I can't go anywhere until I have something to offer". The police used every resource possible in the search for Campbell. Homicide detectives were called to the scene and began an investigation. Members of the Criminal Apprehension Team also assisted in attempting to locate Campbell. The police used every resource possible in the search for Ms. Campbell, also asking the public for any information. The suspect was located on the next day, around 12:30 a.m. at another residence. Campbell was located in good health with no apparent injuries. Shannon Campbell was transported to the police station for an interview. During the interview she admitted to lying about being kidnapped and held against her will. She stated she made the story up so she could get money from her mother. The suspect admitted that at no time was a crime being committed against her and she knew what she was doing was wrong. Shannon Campbell was arrested and charged with filing a false police report and was transported to jail. She is being held on $2,500 bond. If convicted, she may be sentenced up to one year behind bars. ShannonCampbell Inmate Steals Phone to Talk to Girlfriend An inmate working a work program while in jail was charged after trying to steal 23-year-old Leon Marcus Burton has been in jail since July 2012 for charges related to child support, possession of Xanax, and possession of marijuana.He is currently an inmate but was recently was assigned to work as a trustee inmate inside the Emergency Management building. The case started when a $180 cell phone went missing. A bill was later received showing that the phone was in use for several days after it was reported stolen. A report showed the phone was being used to make calls and text messages. An investigation of the number lead detectives to Burtons girlfriend, who then provided detectives with additional evidence. When she let police review her phone, police looked through the conversations between the two and some were said to be sexual. Burton said he threw the phone away when he realized there was a search going on for the cell phone. According to police, Burton reportedly stole an Emergency Management cell phone, while working with a trustee. Police say Burton had qualified to participate in the inmate work program, thus allowing him to receive an extra good-time deduction from his sentence at the rate of five days per thirty full days of work. Burton is no longer qualified to participate in the inmate work program. Inmates classified as habitual criminals or violent inmates are not eligible to participate in the inmate work program. Burton will face charges of petit theft and tampering with evidence in addition to the charges he already has. Leon Burton

AUGUST17, 2013 THESTAR PAGE9By Fred Witt FLORIDA SPORTS WIRE JACKSONVILLE, Fla. … Forgetting for a moment about the camp competition at QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team couldnt muster much offense and committed too many turnovers in Gus Bradleys NFL head coaching debut Friday night. The Jaguars fell to Miami 27-3 before 59,135 at EverBank Field. The Dolphins have now won the last four preseason meetings. True, running back Maurice Jones Drew and last years top receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon sat out the game. But the Jaguars never seemed to be able to get in a sustainable rhythm on offense. We had some good plays and started to get in the flow offensively in the first half. Its all about the ball and we have to take care of it,Ž Bradley said. The guys know that. I thought both side of the ball really competed and thats what we look for as a staff.Ž The Jaguars committed four turnovers. Two interceptions and two fumbles. The last fumble gave the Dolphins the ball inside the Jacksonville five. Jonas Gray scored his second touchdown of the night on a one-yard run. Veteran kicker Josh Scobee accounted for the Jaguars only points, a 23-yard field goal. Still, optimism and enthusiasm reigned. You see the speed of guys like rookies Ace Sanders, Denard Robinson and second year player Jordan Todman. We can definitely build on it,Ž said Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert. Robinson and Todman combined for 77 yards on 15 carries. Sanders caught one pass for eight yards. He and Sanders split punt return duty in the first half. Gabbert was 5 of 10 for 19 yards. He was spelled by Chad Henne who went 8 of 11 for 87 yards and led the Jaguars on the drive that resulted in Scobees field goal. Miami tight end Dustin Keller gave the Dolphins 7-0 lead in the final two minutes of the first quarter. Keller pulled down a 22-yard TD pass from starting QB Ryan Tannehill. Keller caught a 24 yard pass that put Miami in Jacksonville territory as part of the 80-yard scoring drive. Tannehill was 9 of 5 for 75 yards with one interception. Backup Matt Moore was 5 of 9 for 58 yards Dolphins rookie kicker Caleb Sturgis out of Florida kicked field goals of 58 and 36 yard field goals to help Miami improve to 1-1 in the preseason. PLAYER MOVEMENT Jacksonville was awarded fourth-year wide receiver Charly Martin off waivers from San Francisco. Martin, 6-1, 212, has played in 12 career games with one start and totaled five receptions for 48 yards. He has spent time with San Diego, Carolina, Seattle, and San Francisco and was on the Jaguars practice squad for the final four weeks in 2011. Jaguars signed veteran offensive lineman Pat McQuistan. McQuistan, 6-6, 317, is entering his eighth season in the NFL and has played in 72 games with 11 starts. He has spent time with Dallas, Miami, Tennessee, New Orleans and Arizona. He saw action in 12 games for the Cardinals in 2012 with three starts. CAMP NOTES … A decision on the starting QB for the next preseason game should come Thursday or Friday probably more like Friday according to head coach Gus Bradley. On Monday the offense came out and had some nice runs. The Jaguars worked into a third down period and in the red zone. Tight end Marcedes Lewis had a catch and some TDs. INJURY UDATE … Going into Tuesdays practice players are coming back including Justin Blackmon and Jonathan Cyprien. Hobbling is Luke Joeckel, Russell Allen, and Brandon Deaderick. COMING UP … The Jaguars are on the road for their second preseason game. They face the Jets Saturday night at the MetLife Stadium. Shaun Hill had a touchdown pass as the Detroit Lions took a 26-17 win over New York in the preseason opener for both clubs on Friday.

The singer sued Topshop's parent company Arcadia for $5 million over the shirts which her attorneys told Londons High Court in the UKmay have deceived her fans and damaged her reputation. "I am quite satisfied that many fans of Rihanna regard her endorsement as important,Žsaid the judge. She is their style icon. Many will buy a product because they think she has approved of it. Others will wish to buy it because of the value of the perceived authorization itself.

Initial reports indicated that the suspect was using the Crime Stoppers tip line, the Department of Children and Families Hotline, and the cyber-tip line with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to make false reports of sexual and physical child abuse against the complainant. The investigation revealed the suspect, Tawny Blazejowski, 39; St. Augustine, continually reported false crimes against several victims in an attempt to impact their personal and professional lives. In all, six victims were identified as being the target of Blazejowskis harassment. During the investigation, detectives located evidence to support Blazejowski was using various means to allegedly threaten and extort her victims. In April 2013, Blazejowski was arrested and charged with two counts of extortion (released on $100,000 bond). Thursday, deputies arrested Blazejowski for extortion, aggravated stalking (4 counts), and making false reports to the Department of Children and Families. She is being held with a bond Totaling $20,000.00.

In the case of Trayvon Martin, a white man (clearly the aggressor in this incident) shot an innocent, young black teenager who was returning from a 7-11 grocery store in Sanford, Florida. A Florida judge ruled that George Zimmerman (Trayvons murderer) was innocent since he was acting in self defense under Stand Your Ground.Yet in Jacksonville, Florida, just over an hour away, Marissa Alexander, a young black mother who had been abused repeatedly by her husband, fired a warning shot into the air because she feared another attack. Marissa, however, was not allowed a Stand Your Ground defense during her trial and was sentenced to a 20 year mandatory minimum jail sentence, even though she had no prior offenses, and was a hard working woman with an advanced degree who contributed to society. Certainly, if ever there were a case where Stand Your Ground should apply, it would have been that of Marissa Alexander! A documented victim of domestic violence, Marissa was sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison merely for firing a warning shot into the air. Again, this woman did not hurt anyone, yet may now not be able to hug her children for twenty years. And I think it is important to note Marissas husbands threatening words just minutes before the incident: if I can't have you, nobody is going to have you. Indeed, millions of abused women have heard those harsh words. Abused women like Marissa, who has a masters degree and no prior record, need support and counseling so they dont find themselves in these situations to begin with. Arresting and prosecuting her when no one was does not make any sense. And beyond a doubt, mandatory minimum sentences just make Floridas already broken system even more arbitrary and cruel. What was certainly absent from the courtroom during Marissas trial was mercy and justice. Indeed, the three year plea deal from Angela Corey is not mercy, and a mandatory twenty year sentence is not justice! In accordance with North Florida State Attorney Angela Coreys goal of being a tough on crime prosecutor, over the last four and a half years, Ms. Corey has tried more male juveniles as adults than any other county court in the state of Florida. And she also has tried a much greater percentage of black male juveniles as adults than the rest of Florida as well. In the five year period between 2006/7 and 2010/11, across the state of Florida, an average of 52 % of black male juveniles were tried as adults for crimes they had committed (direct filing), which is extraordinarily high -and Ms. Corey tried an average of 70%!! Interestingly, the state of Florida overall during the same time period tried a mere average of 25% of white male juveniles as adults for crimes that they had committed, while Angela Corey tried an even lower average of just 18%. As Martin Luther King said, The Arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. We all need to place tremendous energy in ensuring that our justice system is working for people of all races. In this effort, all citizens need to become activists. Although we have made great progress, there is still a very long way to go.

PAGE 4 THE STAR AUGUST 17, 2013 Talk of the Town! by Frances Bradley / Photos by Volume Burks E kaabo (eh-kah-bow). Welcome.Michael and Marsha Dean Phelts hosted a fundraising event Under the Blue Bottle Tree at their American Beach home for the Capital Campaign Project of Friends of the Library (FOL) at historic Fernandina Beach. The goal of the FOL campaign is to secure extraordinary gifts and pledges of $1.2 million by December 2014 to support renovations to the existing 35-year old facility. Marsha, a former librarian and contributor to The Florida Star, pledged to further support the campaign with an endowment to the librarys Genealogy room which will be named in memory of her mother, Eva C. Rosier Lamar. Phelts credits her love of books and eventual career as a librarian to visits to Jacksonvilles Wilder Park Library with her mother long before she began school at College Park on the campus of Edward Waters College. Under the Blue Bottle Tree is Marshas homage to African and African-American culture where it is said the concept of bottle trees derived. Family and friends casually chatted and noshed on an assortment of amazing hors doeuvres which included shrimp (a beautiful shrimp tree arrangement, no less!), deviled eggs, ham sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, spinach balls, meatballs, candied pecans, peppered pecans, vegetable platters, libations (Roz cucumber splash was a refreshing delight), desserts, and more. The pleasant ocean breeze with the magnificent Atlantic as a backdrop made for an enchanting affair. Boy was I bummed to discover that the table settings of orchids and bottles of sand and seashells marked with FOL labels were not party favors for the taking! Kudos to Deloris Gilyard, Bill and Ann Jennings (such beautiful orchids), and Jesse and Virginia Mealing for the elegant displays. The American Beach Pit Crew, as Marsha lovingly refers to a special group of neighbors and friends who pitched in to assist with arrangements (Beverly McKenzie and Ron Miller helped invitees with parking and getting to the house in Beverlys golf cart), raised $10,000 at the event. Pit crew members pictured are, left to right: Elaine Adams, Deloris Gilyard, the Hon.

PAGE 6 THE STAR AUGUST 17, 2013 Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia Star As an African American newspaper, we basically report on offenses committed by African Americans. Please note that in our observations, weekly reports show that African Americans DO NOT commit the largest percentage of criminal offenses in this area. Citizens with tips are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and become eligible for a reward. MISSINGCHILDREN Name: Cassandra Boneta Age: 14 Weight: 108 lbs Last seen: 7/29/13 Name: Keshauntay Cunningham Age: 16 Weight: 125 lbs Last seen: 8/01/13 Name: Willnesha Forman Age: 15 Weight: 130 lbs Last seen: 8/01/13 Name: Aalyhiai Sealey Age: 15 Weight: 120 lbs Last seen: 8/06/13MOSTWANTED Name: Darius D. Curry Offense: Felony Battery Name: Jonathan Lamont Conyers Offense: AggravatedBattery on Pregnant Victim Name: Elijah Dabney Offense: Attempted Robbery with Gun, Escape from Prison Property Theft There is a difference between Robbery, Burglary, and Theft. When you report a crime to 911 or a police officer, the language you use makes a difference. BURGLARY When someone enters physical property, not his or her own, without permission, with the intent to commit a crime. The crime could be to take belongings from the property (i.e. theft), or against a person within the property (i.e. assault). This could be a residence (residential burglary), a place of business (commercial burglary), a detached storage shed or garage (also residential), or even a public storage unit or storage yard (also commercial). It doesnt matter if force is used to gain entry, if someone was home at the time (in the case of a residential burglary) and it doesnt matter is something is stolen. The unlawful entry of the property with intent to commit a crime is burglary. For the record, most residential burglaries occur during the day, (when people are away at work) and most commercial burglaries occur at night (when the site is more likely to be vacant). THEFT Whenever any property is taken, that is theft. Shoplift (taking something from a store without paying for it), auto theft and auto accessory theft (car stereo/CD player) are examples of theft. One form of theft frequently happens when we go shopping and we leave our belongings (purse, backpack, wallet) unattended. While were busy looking on the bottom shelf for the least expensive oatmeal, someone has taken the purse or backpack, or taken something out of the purse or backpack (wallet, cell phone) without permission, or knowledge, or direct threat or actual use of force. No one implied a threat or used force to take it from you; no one entered your home or place of business to get it; it was there and they took it. Thats theft. ROBBERY The physical taking of property from another individual by the use of force or the implied use of force. Some examples: A woman walking down the street when someone comes up from behind, grabs her purse off of her shoulder and runs away that is a strong-arm robbery, better known as a purse snatch. If a man is walking down the street and another person comes up to him and says, "give me your wallet," while showing a knife or other weapon, that's an armed robbery, whether the weapon was used or not. The physical taking of another persons property through force or implied use of force is robbery, whether a weapon is used or not. Use or implication of a weapon just helps us categorize the "type" of robbery. Safety Two People Shot in Front ofRestaurant At 3:05 a.m., police were dispatched to an Applebees restaurant in reference to a shooting. Two individuals were located with gunshot wounds. Investigation revealed that the business closed at 2:00 a.m. and a group of people continued to hang out on the benches in front of the business. An unknown suspect approached the group and asked for money. One individual in the group gave him $2.00. The suspect began to walk away and then turned around and displayed a pistol demanding their wallets and phones. The individuals in the group told the suspect that they didnt have any money for him. One victim stood up and the suspect shot him in the chest. The other victim was sitting on the bench and was shot in the chin. Three days later, detectives identified the suspect as 22-year-old Anthony Lamar Simmons and his identity was released to the public. A dual shot of the suspect was distributed to the public and the media showing a recent booking photograph and his unique chest and stomach tattoos. Within a few hours of the public notification, the suspect was arrested and charged in the case. Anthony Simmons Woman StagesAbduction to Get Money from Mother A woman was reported missing and held hostage, but it was later discovered that the abduction was staged. At 2:40 p.m., police responded to a residence in reference to a missing person, Shannon Nicole Campbell, 30. Upon arrival, officers made contact with a family member of Campbell stating they had been receiving text messages from her that concerned them. The text messages stated Campbell was being held against her will by an unnamed individual because she owed money for drugs. The suspect told the complainant to transfer $2,000 via Western Union to secure Campbells release. The suspect advised via texts that if the money was not sent, she would be killed. While conducting the investigation, the complainant continued to receive repeated texts from Campbell. Some examples of the text messages were, "she could not leave, that 'he' would put a needle in her arm with 'molly' or heroin and make her life worse". In another text message, she stated, "I can't leave, save me", "I can't go anywhere until I have something to offer". The police used every resource possible in the search for Campbell. Homicide detectives were called to the scene and began an investigation. Members of the Criminal Apprehension Team also assisted in attempting to locate Campbell. The police used every resource possible in the search for Ms. Campbell, also asking the public for any information. The suspect was located on the next day, around 12:30 a.m. at another residence. Campbell was located in good health with no apparent injuries. Shannon Campbell was transported to the police station for an interview. During the interview she admitted to lying about being kidnapped and held against her will. She stated she made the story up so she could get money from her mother. The suspect admitted that at no time was a crime being committed against her and she knew what she was doing was wrong. Shannon Campbell was arrested and charged with filing a false police report and was transported to jail. She is being held on $2,500 bond. If convicted, she may be sentenced up to one year behind bars. ShannonCampbell Inmate Steals Phone to Talk to Girlfriend An inmate working a work program while in jail was charged after trying to steal 23-year-old Leon Marcus Burton has been in jail since July 2012 for charges related to child support, possession of Xanax, and possession of marijuana.He is currently an inmate but was recently was assigned to work as a trustee inmate inside the Emergency Management building. The case started when a $180 cell phone went missing. A bill was later received showing that the phone was in use for several days after it was reported stolen. A report showed the phone was being used to make calls and text messages. An investigation of the number lead detectives to Burtons girlfriend, who then provided detectives with additional evidence. When she let police review her phone, police looked through the conversations between the two and some were said to be sexual. Burton said he threw the phone away when he realized there was a search going on for the cell phone. According to police, Burton reportedly stole an Emergency Management cell phone, while working with a trustee. Police say Burton had qualified to participate in the inmate work program, thus allowing him to receive an extra good-time deduction from his sentence at the rate of five days per thirty full days of work. Burton is no longer qualified to participate in the inmate work program. Inmates classified as habitual criminals or violent inmates are not eligible to participate in the inmate work program. Burton will face charges of petit theft and tampering with evidence in addition to the charges he already has. Leon Burton

AUGUST, 2013 THESTAR PAGEBy Fred Witt FLORIDA SPORTS WIRE JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Forgetting for a moment about the camp competition at QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team couldnt muster much offense and committed too many turnovers in Gus Bradleys NFL head coaching debut Friday night. The Jaguars fell to Miami 27-3 before 59,135 at EverBank Field. The Dolphins have now won the last four preseason meetings. True, running back Maurice Jones Drew and last years top receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon sat out the game. But the Jaguars never seemed to be able to get in a sustainable rhythm on offense. We had some good plays and started to get in the flow offensively in the first half. Its all about the ball and we have to take care of it, Bradley said. The guys know that. I thought both side of the ball really competed and thats what we look for as a staff. The Jaguars committed four turnovers. Two interceptions and two fumbles. The last fumble gave the Dolphins the ball inside the Jacksonville five. Jonas Gray scored his second touchdown of the night on a one-yard run. Veteran kicker Josh Scobee accounted for the Jaguars only points, a 23-yard field goal. Still, optimism and enthusiasm reigned. You see the speed of guys like rookies Ace Sanders, Denard Robinson and second year player Jordan Todman. We can definitely build on it, said Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert. Robinson and Todman combined for 77 yards on 15 carries. Sanders caught one pass for eight yards. He and Sanders split punt return duty in the first half. Gabbert was 5 of 10 for 19 yards. He was spelled by Chad Henne who went 8 of 11 for 87 yards and led the Jaguars on the drive that resulted in Scobees field goal. Miami tight end Dustin Keller gave the Dolphins 7-0 lead in the final two minutes of the first quarter. Keller pulled down a 22-yard TD pass from starting QB Ryan Tannehill. Keller caught a 24 yard pass that put Miami in Jacksonville territory as part of the 80-yard scoring drive. Tannehill was 9 of 5 for 75 yards with one interception. Backup Matt Moore was 5 of 9 for 58 yards Dolphins rookie kicker Caleb Sturgis out of Florida kicked field goals of 58 and 36 yard field goals to help Miami improve to 1-1 in the preseason. PLAYER MOVEMENT Jacksonville was awarded fourth-year wide receiver Charly Martin off waivers from San Francisco. Martin, 6-1, 212, has played in 12 career games with one start and totaled five receptions for 48 yards. He has spent time with San Diego, Carolina, Seattle, and San Francisco and was on the Jaguars practice squad for the final four weeks in 2011. Jaguars signed veteran offensive lineman Pat McQuistan. McQuistan, 6-6, 317, is entering his eighth season in the NFL and has played in 72 games with 11 starts. He has spent time with Dallas, Miami, Tennessee, New Orleans and Arizona. He saw action in 12 games for the Cardinals in 2012 with three starts. CAMP NOTES A decision on the starting QB for the next preseason game should come Thursday or Friday probably more like Friday according to head coach Gus Bradley. On Monday the offense came out and had some nice runs. The Jaguars worked into a third down period and in the red zone. Tight end Marcedes Lewis had a catch and some TDs. INJURY UDATE Going into Tuesdays practice players are coming back including Justin Blackmon and Jonathan Cyprien. Hobbling is Luke Joeckel, Russell Allen, and Brandon Deaderick. COMING UP The Jaguars are on the road for their second preseason game. They face the Jets Saturday night at the MetLife Stadium. Shaun Hill had a touchdown pass as the Detroit Lions took a 26-17 win over New York in the preseason opener for both clubs on Friday. Dolphins spoil Jaguars preseason opener 27-3 Rihanna Sues For $5M After Face Used On ShirtReigning Caribbean mega star Rihanna has won a legal battle against clothing retailer Topshop over a T-shirt that had an image of her from a 2011 video shoot on it. The singer sued Topshop's parent company Arcadia for $5 million over the shirts which her attorneys told Londons High Court in the UKmay have deceived her fans and damaged her reputation. "I am quite satisfied that many fans of Rihanna regard her endorsement as important,said the judge. She is their style icon. Many will buy a product because they think she has approved of it. Others will wish to buy it because of the value of the perceived authorization itself. In both cases they will have been deceived Bahamians In Georgia Celebrate 40th Anniversary of Independence in Atlanta Rookie receiver Ace Sanders, No. 18, works against the Dolphins' defense in the preseason opener.
