Maurice Aiken, aka "Parkboy Krunch" has been charged with the murder of Demetrius Robinson, aka "Dale Boy Meechie". The incident occurred on May 31st and we wrote about it here. We identified Crunch as the shooter a short time later in this post. Charleston Thug Life - driving the news!
Aiken has quite the criminal history. His adult record began in January of 2003 with charges of Possession of Crack Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, PWID Crack Near a School and PWID Marijuana Near a School. It took two years to resolve the charges.
In March of 2005 Aiken pled guilty to possession of crack and possession of marijuana. The PWID near a school charges were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Judge Cottingham sentenced him to time served on the marijuana charge. On the crack cocaine charge Aiken was hit with one of those bullshit youthful offender sentences not to exceed six years, which Cottingham then suspended in favor of eighteen months probation.
While out on bond for the above charges, Aiken was charged in November of 2003 with Disturbing Schools and Assault & Battery on School Personnel. Judge Cottingham also dealt with these charged on March 2, 2005. Aiken pled guilty to both and was sentenced to six months and one year respectively, with jail time suspended while he was on the previously mentioned eighteen months probation.
Five months after being put on probation Aiken was charged in August of 2005 with Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. He pled guilty in November of 2007 and was sentenced by Judge Dennis to 268 days.
While out on bond for the gun charge Aiken was charged in October of 2005 with Trafficking Cocaine, PWID Cocaine Near a School, PWID Cocaine Base (crack) and PWID Crack Near a School. Judge Dennis also handled these charges on 15 November, 2007.
Aiken pled guilty to the cocaine trafficking charge and was sentenced to six years in prison. The 9th Circuit Solicitor dismissed the other three charges.
When 2006 rolled around Aiken was out on bond on all the above charges awaiting trial. He was charged in April with PWID Cocaine Base (crack) and PWID Cocaine Base Near a School.
He pled guilty to the PWID charge and was sentenced to another six years by Judge Dennis. The school charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
Aiken was finally hit with a probation violation in July of 2006. No status listed.
While out on bond on ALL of the above charges and awaiting trial Aiken was charged in June of 2007 with Failure to Stop for Blue Lights, Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol, Resisting Arrest, Trafficking Cocaine, PWID Cocaine Near a School and Possession of a Weapon During a Crime.
These cases were also handled on 15 November, 2007. Aiken pled guilty to trafficking cocaine and was sentenced to an additional six years in prison. ALL of the other charges were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
He was hit with another probation violation on 8 June, 2007. Once again - no status is available.
Aiken served less than three years in prison and was roaming the streets of the Lowcountry in December of 2010 when he was charged with Failure to Stop for Blue Lights. He pled guilty to the charge in August of 2011 and Judge "No one goes to prison" Hughston chose to ignore his prior criminal history. Hughston sentenced Aiken to two years in prison, suspended on the service of sixty days and one year on probation.
Hughston apparently did not give two shits that Aiken was on parole for the litany of offenses above.
Aiken's latest charges are Murder and Attempted Murder. He has no bond yet on the murder charge. His bond on the attempted murder charge is $100,000.
Granted Aiken's latest crime is what have come to refer to as a "two-fer" or a "pesticide" - one thug killing another. We aren't shedding any tears over the status of either party, but we feel it is still necessary to point out this fact. Had the 9th Circuit Solicitor, her minions, and the judges mentioned above been doing their jobs Aiken would not have been free to commit his latest crime.
How many times do our police officers have to lock these maggots up before the 'people's attorney' and the judges take action to back them up? Prior to the murder Aiken committed twenty-two (22) serious crimes. Eleven (11) of those charges were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Aiken served less than three (3) years in prison for the other eleven charges.
How does this make any damn sense?
