Trial Delayed For Bratt Man Accused Of Child Molestation

November 30, 2009

Trial has been delayed again for a Bratt man charged with allegedly abusing two girls — one just five years old.

posey10.jpgJody Posey, 71, of 7100 North Pine Barren Road, was arrested in early March by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department and charged with three felony child sexual abuse charges. His trail was scheduled to begin today in front of an Escambia County Circuit Court jury, but was delayed due to Hurricane Ida.  He had been scheduled to appear on November 10 for a plea hearing prior to trial, but court cases on that date were all rescheduled due to Ida.

Posey is now scheduled to appear in court January 12 for a plea hearing, and his jury trial is set for February 1.

Posey has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

He was originally held without bond, but Circuit Judge Michael Allen approved a bond reduction request in the case. Posey remains free on $200,000 bond.

    It is not my place to judge or convict him , but if I were on the jury I would look at evidence not assumptions that is plain wrong. I pray you never get accused of anything! I also pray someone like you won’t be on my jury when I have to go to court . Shame on yall

    “if I was on his jury, he better run while he can.”

    Ought to be completely impartial prior to presentation of evidence. Wait until PROVEN guilty to pass judgement.

    Better that way.

    Less chance for error.
