Jeffery Lamar Rainey’s most recent arrest took place April 21 on charges of theft by receiving stolen property. Assistant District Attorney Dawn Baskin told the court at the May 1 bond hearing that Rainey was arrested while he was driving a stolen vehicle and asked his bond be revoked.
Superior Court Judge James Cline agreed with the prosecutor.
“My problem is when we let you out, you go to another county and get locked up. I find you are a risk to the community and revoke your bond,” he said.
Baskin started her argument by stating that Rainey was arrested in Jones County Jan. 22 on charges of theft by receiving and possession of meth. She said he was granted bond Jan. 28 and released but was subsequently arrested in Wilkinson County on burglary charges and theft by taking motor vehicle in Jones County.
Rainey was represented by public defender Sean Brodie. The defense attorney told the court that the events did not happen exactly as the state portrayed.
