    Lawyers ask judge to recuse himself in trial of Shaniya Davis' mother

    Lawyers for the mother of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis are asking Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Jim Ammons to recuse himself from her upcoming trial.

    Jury selection in Antoinette Davis' murder trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 28 in Cumberland County Superior Court.

    Lawyers representing Davis filed a motion Tuesday asking Ammons to recuse himself from presiding over the case. They previously filed a motion asking that all charges against Davis be dismissed.

    This quote from Ima's post above, taken from the linked article Ima cites, makes no sense to me. I haven't seen everything, I'm sure, in their document(s) for reasons to have him recused, but I just can't imagine why -- unless they were just reluctant to say they thought Ammons already has his mind made up. I don't think that's the case at all. Having the same judge stay with a case, or several, is common at least in the jurisprudence I have seen in NC courts. The same judge will prolly preside at Amanda Hayes trial in January, 2014 -- unless he retires, which he is eligible to do...

    It sounds like the old throwing-spaghetti-against-the-wall-to-see-what-sticks trick to me.


    eta: Please know that my comments above do not in any way have anything to do with Ima -- ima only presented the article -- my objections have to do with what's in the article itself!!

    If anyone can tell me more about the reasoning behind this recusal pitch, please speak up... Maybe I just missed something.

    It's just par for the norm in almost every trial; a standard objection put in place for the inevitable appeals after conviction.

    I'm glad this sorry excuse for a mother is finally going to trial.

    Interesting! I'll bet it was because of this...

    http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?se...cal&id=9291946

    New charges added in Antoinette Davis case

    An indictment filed this week adds conspiracy and first-degree kidnapping charges to the long list of charges that 29-year-old Antoinette Davis faces in the 2009 murder of her daughter Shaniya.

    The news came Friday as Cumberland County Superior Court Judge Jim Ammons refused to suppress evidence against Davis. Her lawyers had argued she was coerced into making statements to police before her arrest.

    WRAL-TV is reporting that Antoinette Nicole Davis pleaded guilty to Second-Degree murder, Human Trafficking, First-Degree Kidnapping, First-Degree Sex Offense, Felony Child Abuse with Prostitution, Child Abuse and Indecent Liberties with Child. A judge sentenced her to spend at least 17 years in prison.

    The plea deal included the dismissal of a First-Degree Rape Charge, the station reports, and it means no trial - which was scheduled to begin Oct. 28.

    Well, I guess dat's dat. A disappointment, as I'm sure many of us WS'ers will agree, but she's in custody at this moment, and she'll now be property of the NC Dept. of Public Safety/DOC (old name) for a while.

    Let's pray that the dependents she leaves behind will be cared-for in a good home with a real family somewhere. I am thinking of her young son right now. Regular meals, clean clothes, help with school and some real two-way love -- that's what he needs. Please don't let circumstances throw him away, or he may be standing in front of this same judge in a few years. It's all so tragic. This kid saw stuff that we couldn't dream up, I'm sure, and he saw it every day, IMO. I would like for him to see -- every day -- what normal family life is like so that he will want to have that himself when he is grown...

    Children are not trash to crumble-up and throw out on the side of the street.

    I hope we will see what develops with him...

    And isn't AD pregnant now? Some couple would love to have a new-born... Another tragedy, and he/she hasn't even been born yet. She ought to get time for that, too, IMO. Grrrrrr.

    Please excuse the rant...

    Sentence - between 210 - 261 months

    That's about 20 years max. I am not impressed.
