    Harrell Appears In Court On Molestation Charges
    Neighbors Of Somer Thompson Watch Case Closely

    POSTED: 4:10 pm EST March 10, 2010

    The court appearance came one month after Jarred Harrell was arrested. Police said he took lewd pictures of a girl younger than 12 years old inside his bedroom. Harrell pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    Harrell didn't say anything in court on Wednesday. He's faces 55 charges in connection with the case.

    In the latest documents released, they indicate Harrell took pictures of a young girl around the same age as Somer Thompson in a bedroom in the home on Gano Avenue. That's not far from where Somer was last seen in October. In some of the pictures, authorities said Harrell's hands are visible.

    Neighbors hope Harrell will soon no longer be person of interest in the slaying of Somer. They want him to become the primary suspect. "Knowing that 55 charges of child molestation and videos and things like that, it turns my stomach because I have young kids," neighbor Doug Cline said.

    After Harrell's arraignment, he was returned back to his isolation cell. He remains jailed without bond and is already looking at a life sentence in prison.

    Harrel Pleads Not Guilty To New Charges
    Suspicions Surround Person Of Interest In Somer Thompson Case

    The only person of interest in the killing of a Clay County girl spent his morning in court Wednesday. Jarred Harrel pleaded not guilty to child molestation charges unrelated to Somer Thompson.

    Harrell is not charged with Somer's death, but speculation against him is growing as these additional charges involve his interactions with a girl around the same age as Somer. Suspicion now in Somer's community is growing as the charges mount against Harrell.

    Person Of Interest In Somer Thompson Case In Court
    Wednesday, March 10, 2010 6:22:59 PM
    <snipped>
    The person of interest in the Somer Thompson murder case pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a slew of new charges unrelated to Thompson's death. A Jacksonville television station is reporting that Jarred Harrell is now officially facing 55 charges involving possession and production of child pornography and lewd molestation.

    Clay County prosecutors say the new charges are related to a 3-year-old girl who Harrell is accused of molesting. Court records show the photos and video were all taken inside his parents’ home on Gano Avenue in Orange Park. That’s the same street Somer Thompson was last seen before she disappeared in October while walking home from school.

    Harrell pleads not guilty to child porn, molestation charges
    Person of interest in Somer Thompson slaying received jail visit from mother, records show

    Story updated at 5:24 PM on Wednesday, Mar. 10, 2010
    <snipped>
    Jarred Harrell pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning in Clay County court to 55 counts of child pornography, including two counts of molesting a young girl. His next court appearance was set for April 8.

    This morning's one-minute arraignment involved two separate cases in which Harrell is represented by the public defender's office. Assistant public defender Kate Bedell, who heads the agency's office in Clay County, stood next to Harrell and entered the not guilty pleas before Circuit Judge John Skinner.

    Clay County jail records released to The Times-Union today show that Harrell has had two sets of visitors: his public defenders and, last week, his mother, Annis Dailey. Those meetings were not recorded, authorities said. Dailey, in a phone call she had with her son when he was being held in Mississippi, spoke of providing him an alibi if he was ever charged in the Somer Thompson case. Dailey has not returned several Times-Union messages seeking comment.

    UPDATED: Trash truck backup caused delay in Somer search
    Backup of trash trucks, lack of space at a Clay waste station led to authorities’ decision.

    Story updated at 7:34 AM on Thursday, Mar. 11, 2010
    <snipped>
    Somer Thompson’s body may have been found at a Clay County trash site rather than a Georgia landfill if not for a decision to end the local search primarily because of a backup of trash trucks, records and an interview with the county manager show.

    An agreement by Alan Altman, Clay’s director of environmental services, and sheriff’s deputies combing the trash site on Oct. 20 ended the search, County Manager Fritz Behring said. That prevented an immediate opportunity to find the truck that picked up Somer’s body, learn the truck’s route and possibly narrow the location where she was killed and dumped.

    Investigators later tried to identify the specific trash truck after Somer’s body was found Oct. 21, two days after she disappeared. The Sheriff’s Office said that search, which they called a potential key to helping solve the case, was complicated because the body had been mixed with tons of trash transferred from the Clay site to the Chesser Island Road landfill in Folkston, Ga. A further complication: Behring said there are no known records of which trash trucks were unloaded into which of the tractor-trailers that were hauled to Georgia the next day.

    Davis, 59, said he saw a group of people, including some deputies, leave the building in the afternoon, shed their boots and drive off. Davis said he took that as a sign Somer had been found elsewhere. He said he was puzzled after later learning Somer hadn’t been found at that time.

    “If they would have kept on searching they probably would have found her before they found her in Georgia,” Davis said.

    Harrell's Ex-Stepdad Talks Somer Case
    Joseph Newman Writes Letter To Channel 4 About Former Stepson

    POSTED: Thursday, March 11, 2010
    UPDATED: 4:00 pm EST March 11, 2010
    <snipped>
    Joseph Newman, who made headlines more than 20 years ago for marrying Jarred Harrell's mother and for marrying his 8-year-old sister, sent a one-page letter to Channel 4 talking about his former stepson and Somer Thompson.

    In the letter Newman sent to Channel 4's Adam Landau in response, he said, "During the short time I was with Jarred, I found a child that was wanting love and guidance. I tried to give that to him." Newman also wrote, "I hope Jarred is not guilty of killing the sweet Somer girl. I personally would not have thought the Jarred I knew capable of doing such. I hope all involved will make absolute proof he is guilty before damning him."

    The letter also addresses Harrell's mother's fight for custody. "I was in court in (Harrell's mother) Annis' behalf to keep Jarred's father from getting the children," Newman wrote. "While I was on the stand, God did such an astounding miracle that the judge dismissed the court. The attorney who was representing Jarred's father walked out of the court saying that he no longer represented him."

    It would be AWFUL to hear of more child porn charges because of the poor children involved. IF JH is the murderer, it would be good to hear of murder charges, but right now, without hearing anything about HOW he is connected to Somer I would hesitate to say that I would be glad to hear he is charged for her murder because I want to see the evidence against him before I would say that. LE would be stupid NOT to name him a POI just from the fact of where he lived and then being charged with the porn and child molestation.

    Of course, he is a POI! Why wouldn't he be? The town of Orange Park would be in an uproar if they had NOT considered him a POI at this point, but I don't have him convicted of Somer's murder yet without any evidence being released. We have not heard any FACTS released about what LE has that connects him to Somer. All we keep hearing from LE is that he is a POI but his porn charges are not connected to Somer's disappearance and murder.

    Although I wanted/tried to have faith, this latest report on the how the garbage was actually handled vs. how it was originally portrayed to be handled leaves me now wondering. The Sherriff had no comment, but I believe he needs to respond IMO.

    Dee, as someone who has been all over the trash stories more times than I can count, I feel like throwing my hands up in despair or believing any reports we are given now and in the past. I find the timing of this story suspect in itself. This guy could have told us this months ago. All we have now are conflicting accounts from everybody from the sheriff, to the FBI to the detectives. I do think we are owed an explanation as to why we are being led to believe now that they never tracked it down to a specific truck, driver, dumpster, route, etc. Whether one is ever forthcoming is another matter all together. I of course, have my own theory on why the story keeps changing.

    Hi Dee :)

    SO i see the words "prevented an immediate opportunity"...

    BUT when will we find out IF it "prevented ANY opportunity"

    THAT is the million dollar question - at least for me.

    And I agree, a response from CCSO, specifically the Sherriff would be welcomed & greatly appreciated unfortunately I don't think he gives a rat's patootie what anyone thinks about his Somer Thompson murder investigation.

    Hey Dr. Fessel (yeah - it's me the brave soul - thanks for the salute back a few pages BTW)

    ummmmm, just curious doc...

    Did you ever hear back as to whether the coverage claiming Somer was found wrapped in a rug is a fact or rather just more lousy reporting - on this long bumpy winding road with steep cliffs on both sides - along the way to Justice for Somer?

    Sorry if I missed your post about such.
    TIA.

    Seriously. And for the last time. How can the sheriff have said "we found her on the front end before she got mixed in with tons of garbage" only to find that, so much for following those trash trucks on their route. Now it's oh, we followed them to the dump in GA. The backend of the process. The very backend!!

    This story of them trying to search records a mere two weeks ago to determine what dumpster or truck pickup is unbelievable!!

    I assumed he meant the tons of garbage in Georgia, usually in a garbage search you see them out digging giant holes in the dump.
