Florida State Attorney Uses Conversation about Rapper Rick Ross to Entrap Teen Inmate

Tallahassee, FL—Within 48 hours of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office investigation into a double homicide case, LCSO detectives with the Violent Crimes Unit acted on a hunch and aggressively sought out to charge 17-year-old, DeShon Thomas, who attending Tallahassee Community College full-time and working part-time at Taco Bell. Statements from witnesses and evidence that LCSO hoped to support their hunch quickly fell flat. But not before LCSO had violated DeShon’s constitutional rights. Without a search warrant or a warrant for DeShon’s arrest, LCSO charged DeShon with possession of drug paraphernalia and cultivation of marijuana. DeShon was charged as an adult. DeShon pled not guilty.

One detective refused to move past DeShon. His name was, Don Odham. Don Odham had introduced himself to DeShon and his mother as “Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham.” Detective Odham used racist vulgar toward DeShon and his mother inside the lobby of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Detective Odham denied DeShon access to an attorney, locked DeShon and his mother in an interview room and held them there against their will—neither of them were under arrest. DeShon’s mother voiced her frustration to Detective Odham, telling him that he was violating her and her son’s rights and that she would be contacting an attorney. Detective Odham’s reaction was to bully Trentin Ross into providing false testimony. DeShon is INNOCENT!

Trentin Ross was 21-years-old. Trentin Ross and DeShon were co-workers at Taco Bell. And when Trentin Ross tried to back away from the case, out of desperation, then Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell, the son of then Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, took it upon himself to recruit State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin, along with a convicted felon, Dawuan Williams, to entrap DeShon with Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder with the target being Trentin Ross. Dawuan Williams and DeShon Thomas were housed in the same housing unit inside of the Leon County Jail. Dawuan Williams approached DeShon and propositioned to murder Trentin Ross—which was ordered by Prosecutor Jack Campbell and State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin. DeShon did not take Dawuan Williams serious. Dawuan Williams was released for his cooperation. Over a recorded phone line—from the Leon County Jail—Dawuan Williams and DeShon Thomas had a conversation about Rapper Rick Ross’ music. Prosecutor Jack Campbell and State Attorney Investigator Jason Newlin edited the recording—deleting out “Rick”—only capturing the name “Ross”—which is also Trentin’s last name. This edited recording was used to make Trentin Ross and Trentin Ross’ parents and other family members believe that DeShon had a “murder hit” on his life. This edited recording was also played in court to the jury.

Despite DeShon’s mother having paid nearly $30,000 to defense attorney, Greg Cummings, whom she later fired, it was not until DeShon’s third day in trial being represented by court appointed attorney, Regional Counsel Daren Shippy, as to when DeShon and his family learned that Don Odham was never an employee with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. It’s a proven fact—documented in DeShon’s court records—that Don Odham was assigned as the lead detective with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit on the double homicide case against DeShon while other detectives had chose to investigate other viable leads—also information prepared and submitted to former State Attorney Willie Meggs was used by Chief Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman to obtain an indictment against DeShon on two counts of 1st degree murder and possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent. Don Odham was impersonating a law enforcement officer. Don Odham was just a wealthy friend of Sheriff Larry Campbell and his son, Jack. With the many LIES circulating between the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and the Leon County Courthouse, as well as, rogue attorneys and judges being protected by The Florida Bar, DeShon’s conviction was inevitable. DeShon Thomas was convicted without any physical evidence against him. DeShon has been away from his family for six years.

The State of Florida paid Rapper Pit Bull $1 million dollars ($1,000,000.00) to promote ‘Visit Florida’, but used lyrics by Rapper Rick Ross that were repeated by 17-year-old, DeShon Thomas, to instill fear in Trentin Ross in order to gain DeShon’s conviction.

Jack Campbell is currently the State Attorney for Florida’s Second Judicial Circuit. Not only will his past “EVIL ACTS” catch up with him, but any and all cases handled by his office will one day be subjected to be overturned. DeShon and his family are not the only victims of Jack Campbell—the victims list has grown significantly.

Tallahassee Community College Student Kidnapped inside of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office—Still Imprisoned—Despite Notice of Formal Charges against Circuit Judge

Tallahassee, FL—Judges are sworn in to uphold the law without favor of either parties while presiding over a trial. Florida is one of many states where youth can be charged as adults. It is the duty of a judge to especially ensure that a child’s rights are protected as the child is in court.

DeShon Thomas, a Black male youth, stood in the courtroom of Second Judicial Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford as she sentenced him to two life sentences plus thirty (30) years after a trial by jury convicted DeShon on two counts of 1st degree murder and solicitation to commit 1st degree murder; followed by possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent. The First District Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel represented DeShon during trial, and later filed an appeal on DeShon’s behalf. DeShon’s appeal was denied. Regional counsel chose to ignore many of the mitigating factors that could have at best resulted in DeShon receiving a new trial. (DeShon is INNOCENT!)

Since DeShon’s conviction, a Notice of Formal Charges was filed by the Judicial Qualifications Commission against Second Judicial Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford. Judge Fulford was one of two judges that presided over DeShon’s case.

In April 2015, less than two months after David Dothard, a pre-production producer for Jupiter Entertainment, contacted DeShon’s mother requesting a T.V. interview for their true-crime documentary show Fatal Attraction produced for T.V. One Network, an investigative panel of the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission met. During the meeting, the majority of its members voted for the existence of probable cause for formal proceedings to be initiated against Second Judicial Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford.

Prior to the JQC meeting, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi received information in regards to Judge Fulford allowing perjury in DeShon’s case. There was no physical evidence to support the murder charges against DeShon. The prosecutor, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell (also the son of then Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell—who brought all of the charges against DeShon), heavily relied on testimonies of Don Odham and Trentin Ross. During DeShon’s trial, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell and Regional Counsel Daren Shippy (DeShon’s court appointed attorney) gave the jury “Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham,” the lead detective on the double murder case against DeShon. (Previously, Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman obtained an indictment against DeShon—charging him with two counts of 1st degree murder and possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent using information—including interviews and notarized documents submitted by “Leon County Sheriff’s Detective Don Odham.”)

As former United States President Barack Obama regularly quotes his mother saying, “Reality has a way of catching up with you.”     

Don Odham was never an employee with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Don Odham’s up-close and personal relationship with former Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and his son, Jack, netted Don Odham a Leon County Sheriff’s Office badge number, a patrol car to take home and use at his leisure, a position along with the roles and responsibilities with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit—giving him full access to children and then becoming lead detective on the double homicide case against DeShon. Under former Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, Don Odham was allowed to impersonate a law enforcement officer.

In July 2015, a Fatal Attraction episode entitled, ‘Crippled by Blood,’ debuted regarding the Leon County Sheriff’s Office so-called investigation leading up to DeShon’s arrest. There was no mention that Judge Jackie Fulford was no longer a sitting judge—and she herself was facing charges. Though she continues to possess her Florida license to practice law, Jackie Fulford has been ‘crippled’ by Jack Campbell. As for Don Odham, the imposter, he premiered in the Fatal Attraction episode—clearly interacting with witness, Trentin Ross.

In 2016, a case integrity review report led a judge in Ocala, Florida to overturn a prison inmate’s prison sentence. It’s been reported that newly elected State Attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit (Jacksonville/Duval County), Melissa Nelson (Republican), may form an integrity team to review past cases for mistakes. No attorney in Tallahassee has called for the review of any cases presided over by former Second Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford. Pam Bondi’s office handles appeals—Bondi has not done anything to overturn Fulford’s judicial rulings. The back-scratching in Tallahassee has run amuck!

DeShon Thomas was KIDNAPPED! He was stripped away from his family six years ago based on LIES, LIES, LIES, and more LIES!
