Several witnesses told police they saw Marshall, also known as “Scooter” violently assaulting the victim and yelling at him in reference to disrespecting a female acquaintance. . At one point a witness said they observed a female attempting to pull the black male away from the victim. Police were shown a photograph via cell phone of the victim after he had been assaulted, with a text message suggesting they were next.

The victim was transported to an area trauma center and is currently in a medically induced coma and listed in critical condition.

Marshall was arrested on September 7, 2019, and charged with the following:

    • Attempted First Degree Murder
    • Assault First Degree
    • Assault Second Degree

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division are continuing the investigation.

      You guys all blame the judges and the state’s Attorney (sorry the prosecutor is not a DA at the county level). Unfortunately, there just isn’t any room in the prisons or jails. Lock him up and throw away the key is unrealistic unless he’s killed 10 people or eaten a family. Will be lucky if this guy goes away for 12 months. Tell your elected reps to build more jails and hire more CO’s to babysit these fools.

      • Truth be told on September 12, 2019 at 6:25 pm

        Jails too crowded? Then bring back the death penalty and start killing these assholes! Lexington park a tiny town in St. Mary’s known for Amish and farms has become a ghetto drug infested wasteland!

    Ok – so since the family is going to get on and say we don’t know the real story – lets do it this way to prevent all the unneeded comments.

    1.) What did Jesse do to provoke this?
    2.) Who is the female acquaintance?
    3.) Is he in the process of ‘getting his life together’? Y/N
    4.) Why did SMNEWSNET wait so long to post about this violent attack?
    5.) Put the rumors to rest – was he jumped?
    6.) Was the accused just defending himself?

    • Hold on a minute. on September 13, 2019 at 7:02 am

      You left out the part about “his struggles”

      Without knowing that – I mean – how can you even accuse him at all?

  9. exrep on September 11, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    the Chief of the “L”Park Lords keep him locked up this time

      Nobody ever notices when you’re provoked, only when you retaliate.

      • True Confessions Time! on September 13, 2019 at 7:04 am

        Oh – I see that you are no stranger to retaliation Sherri.

        Please – elaborate honey.

    • Since you think you need to know on September 13, 2019 at 7:16 am

      I myself pray to the real God.

      No colored beads, no prayer books to recite, just my own speech spoken in honesty to Him

      No Mary-worship, no pedophile priest, no fish-fillet Fridays, no need for a false fake pope.

      Just a humble sinner talking 1 on 1 to the Lord. It is personal and real.

      I don’t publicize false declarations of it – I go to Him in private.

      So what I am saying is honest. Now you know what “I” mean.

    • How did this get to be a topic for discussion on September 13, 2019 at 7:18 am

      At least by mis-spelling the words, you aren’t actually claiming to have either –
      “thoughts or prayers”.

      I can respect that.

  17. Stop&Think on September 12, 2019 at 2:51 pm

    At least we can finally help him sort out that whole “no fixed address” issue.

    • Yes indeed - Your new address is...... on September 13, 2019 at 7:19 am

    Okay… What is the point in stomping on someone’s head after you’ve already won the fight? That’s what you call overkill.

    • Interesting comment on September 13, 2019 at 7:22 am

      I see your point.

      But honestly – isn’t that what that mugshot photo makes you want to do to this ape?

      You know – citizen X style?

      • Citizen X Style on September 16, 2019 at 10:33 am

        Oh YES!

        I agree!

        That was the best scene of that flick.

  19. Just Wow on September 16, 2019 at 7:03 am

    This comments are disappointing. No good information came from them. No family to tell us the ‘real’ story. No girlfriend to tell us the ‘real’ tea. Just basic. At least he has an address now.
