Busy in Baldwin County
Our Baldwin County Office has been really busy over the last couple of weeks. Below are just a few of the big cases they have been working on.
Garyuntae Ivey, Netobia Williams, Devion Boyd and T’Andre Alexander were charged with the murder and aggravated assault of Javon Jackson and the aggravated assault of Jeremiah Collins that occurred on November 9, 2021, in the Southwoods Mobile Home Park. The shooting was an act of retaliation by the defendants toward Jackson’s brother for a stolen gun. The defendants, knowing that Jackson’s brother was not at the mobile home park, showed up and began shooting at Jackson, hitting him five times and killing him. One of the dozens of bullets grazed Jeremiah Collins. Williams, one of the shooters, pled guilty to Malice Murder and received a sentence of Life with the Possibility of Parole. Boyd, an accomplice, pled guilty to Aggravated Assault and received a sentence of 20 years probation with the first 12 years to be served in prison. Alexander, the driver, pled guilty to Aggravated Assault and received a sentence of 20 years probation with the first 5 years served in prison.

On September 1, 2023, Ramage pled guilty to Homicide by Vehicle – 1st Degree and DUI (Less Safe) and received a sentence of 15 years with the first 10 to be served in prison.

Jermel Ford was charged with two counts of Burglary, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Criminal Damage to Property, Cruelty to Children – 3rd Degree, Obstruction of an Officer, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon for his actions towards his ex-girlfriend on May 13, 2022. His reign of terror began at 3:00 that morning, when he broke into her house, beat her, damaged her home, and smashed her cell phone. At 9:00 that morning, Ford came back to the home and threw a liquor bottle through her bedroom window. Just before 6:00 that night, Ford attempted to follow his ex-girlfriend home, at which point she called law enforcement. Officers responded to her home and found Ford parked down the street, where he attempted to run from officers. A gun was located in the woods behind the house Ford ran behind. Ford went to trial and was found guilty of one count of Burglary, Aggravated Battery, and several misdemeanors and was sentenced to 40 years probation with the first 20 years to be served in prison on September 6, 2023. Due to his criminal history, Ford was sentenced as a recidivist and will not be eligible for parole. This case was prosecuted by Sydney E. Segers and Tammy Coffey.
