Judge who reduced suspect's bond revokes bond after violations

Published: Wed, November 10, 2010 @ 5:43 a.m.


A man accused of the drive-by shooting of a 7-year-old girl had been free on bond awaiting trial, but now he is back in Mahoning County jail.

Alfonda Madison, 23, of Dearborn Avenue, has had his $50,000 bond revoked and will be in jail while awaiting trial on charges of felonious assault and complicity in the shooting of the South Side girl in the parking lot of a North Side convenience store in June. She was shot in both legs.

As a part of his bond, Madison was placed on electronically monitored house arrest where his movements were limited to his home. Court documents say Madison violated his requirement to stay home on numerous occasions.

Judge James C. Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court issued an arrest warrant for Madison on Oct. 29. The judge then ordered he be jailed without bond.

At an initial arraignment in June, Judge Robert Douglas of Youngstown Municipal Court set bond for Bush and Snowden at $250,000 each and at $375,000 for Madison.

After Madison’s attorney asked for his bond to be reduced, Judge Evans reduced the bond to $50,000 with the electronically monitored house-arrest stipulation in a court order dated Sept. 9.

Prosecutors say Madison and co-defendants Asa Bush, 22, of Dearborn Avenue and Samson Snowden, 20, of Cedar Lane, shot the child in both legs while she sat in the back seat of a relative’s car at the convenience store on Logan Avenue.

Witnesses told police a tan vehicle containing four men drove down Saranac Avenue west of Logan with someone firing shots at the car containing the child.

Family members said the child and other family members had been headed to a local swimming pool. The family had piled into several cars heading to the recreation facility.

So Alfonda Madison, 23 was able to make bail on $50,000 ? If the funds came from drug activity let's follow up and confiscate them . There was nothing in this case that even remotely suggested any bond reduction . Shooting a seven year old child seems to be no big deal . We owe these thugs nothing !

What will it take to clean the community of those who will not abide by the law. Does someone else have to be maimed or killed to keep these criminals on lock-down. It is clear that once the option of bond is presented, they will go out and continue to act inhumanely. There is a facility that is not being utilized where they can be housed. Let the legally armed citizens post up and make sure these criminals stay inline. Keeping them off the streets decreases crime that much more. It is evident, 95% of crime is by a repeat offender.

Society has failed again. Sending him to jail is just a sentence to Criminal College...where he will learn all the latest and greatest methods of reaping wealth from the weak and helpless. He will be out and back on the streets shortly with his new-found education. God, I hate the direction we are headed. Why must we be punished so? Why can't we learn from our mistakes?

How come after the first time he violated his bond he wasnt sent back.
