Burglar shot 3 times while trying to escape

Joseph Bevans Junior

At age forty-eight, Joseph Bevans Junior has as many as nine convictions on his rap sheet; most of them for crimes of dishonesty. On March eighteenth, he added another crime to his list when he allegedly broke into a house, owned by Kevin Graham, in the Western Paradise area.  Bevans was caught as he left Graham’s yard at around three-thirty p.m., carrying a bag of clothing and footwear and he was shot three times by a neighbor. After as many days in the hospital, he was handed over to police, who escorted him to the Magistrate’s Court this morning to be charged with Burglary. Bevans is accused of stealing a total of three hundred and sixty-five dollars in items from Graham’s house and pleaded not guilty. And because he could not meet bail, he was kept in custody until his next court appearance on April twenty-first. Graham received a call from his neighbor about the burglary and arrived in time to see Bevans run into nearby bushes. According to Graham, he waited for twenty minutes on the roadside until Bevans resurfaced and he grabbed the bag from him. The neighbor fired several shots at Bevans, three of which caught him. His gunshot wounds were classified as Dangerous Harm.

    3 shots is 2 less than 5 which is what he should have gotten. I know this character personally from my time as an employee of the prison. Retribution is catching up with him for taking God for a mockery. He is one the jail christians that John Woods uses as poster boy when they want to get photo ops and advertise the propaganda of the so called wonderful things they’re doing for the inmates. Well, this is one of your rehabilitated recidivists John Woods so obviously you and the whole corrupted system is a failure. Maybe he will truly seek God now and get it right this time. With these kinds of criminal history, I think the 3 strikes law should be implemented and applied, but I also wish I was billionaire!!!!

    I sure hope the Douchette we have for a D.P.P. does not charge the neighbor cause I know she loves easy cases where law abiding citizens give all details to the police in their caution statements, but she is useless when real criminals give their fake caution statements.

    Hahahahaha…since he used his hands to get the stuff he stole, they should have chopped off one of his hand & because he used his feet to get away with the stuff he stole, they should have chopped one of them off too. Sick of these rejects & waste of sperm individuals preying on citizens who work hard for their things.

I wonder what his dad have to say now after he beat my brother almost to death.God don’t like ugly you sob. May God forgive me for that statement but that is one grievance i will hold against him till the day i die.
