Stallworth bond hearing postponed

Jarron Stallworth will find out if he’ll receive a bond today in Dallas County District Court.

The Selma Police Department had Stallworth on its most wanted list before the Selma man surrendered to authorities Monday. He is in the Dallas County Jail under no bond.

Stallworth appeared in Dallas County District Court on Wednesday afternoon with his attorney Brandon Wooten. Before the bond hearing began, Wooten asked for a continuance to prepare. Judge Bob Armstrong allowed Wooten until today.

Fourth Judicial District Attorney Michael Jackson said his office is seeking a $1 million bond.

“We need to keep this terror off the streets,” the district attorney added.

On Monday, Detective Frederick Walker arrested Stallworth after the man arrived at police headquarters.

He faces two outstanding warrants for burglary first-degree and for shooting into an occupied dwelling, according to Sgt. Doug Stewart, Administrative Division commander for the Selma Police Department.

Armstrong read the charges to Stallworth when he appeared briefly before the judge Wednesday. Wooten stood to Stallworth’s right and family members stood at the man’s left.

In 2009 Stallworth became a suspect in a shooting on Minter Avenue.

In November 2009 a 47-year-old woman told police she and her grandson were inside her residence when she heard gunshots. The victim saw two bullet holes in her house.

After building on leads, authorities arrested Andre Brown, 28, of Selma and charged him with shooting into an occupied dwelling, according to Stewart.

At the time, Stewart said evidence and information indicated the other offender was Stallworth, but authorities believed he had left town.

Stallworth has a long history of incidences and charges, according to authorities.
