Hamby faints, pleads guilty

Dec 14, 2007 Full story: The South Mississippi Sun Herald 21

“I had to go live with my mother, to keep me away from everybody else.”

A former Hancock County elected law enforcement official fired his lawyer, got a new attorney and then passed out in court before pleading guilty to drug charges Thursday.

Former Constable Danny Hamby collapsed in Circuit Court on Thursday afternoon while entering an open guilty plea before Judge Roger Clark. He was charged with possession of crystal methamphetamine with intent to distribute and with transfer of a controlled substance.

Hamby narrowly missed striking his head on a courtroom table when he lost consciousness and suddenly pitched forward, toppling to the floor. He was resuscitated and, at the request of his mother, given a piece of peppermint. He was allowed to be seated while completing his plea. Read more

...It would've been better had he died of a heart attack in the courtroom. What a piece of scum this guy is......

I don't know what has happened to Danny in the last few years to turn him into someone he himself would have despised at one time.

I first met him over 15 years ago, and from what little I knew of him, he seemed like a nice guy. I've not really had enough interaction with him to know him that well. But, from conversations with him at that time, he seemed okay. My opinion did change after a while.

He's a habitual liar, a thief, a stupid-ass drug pusher, an arsonist and worst of all, a deadbeat dad. If any of you really know him, have you ever known him to talk about his kids or spend any time with them? I know for a fact that he doesn't pay a dime in child support. His mother has taken care of his punk ass for far too long. Hopefully, he gets gang raped in prison for the next few years.

I hope the judge isn't fooled by his lying, bullshit.

I'm not trying to defend Hamby. It's apparent he has some issues in his life. It's also obvious that you are someone who despises him but to go on another thread and suggest that he had something to do with someones murder is just plain ridiculous. Obviously, you have not been following that case and have major hatred toward Hamby to throw his name in there like you have.

As I replied in another thread, I really don't believe that Hamby is capable of murder- he just doesn't have it in him

Crickette, I think I owe you an apology. Yes, I hate Danny Hamby and believe me, I have good reasons to, but after re-reading my last post, I sound like I jerk. That's not really me. Sorry...nothing personal.

No apology necessary, I understand that many take issue with Hamby.... and for good reason.

It's about time there was a little justice for the corrupt, crooked, drug slinging, badge wearing "law enforcement officers" in "Hancrook" county. Maybe this will snowball & take down the rest of those low lifes.

on the flip side of that, there are also a lot of honest, caring hard-working law enforcement officers in Hancock county... who don't get the kudos that they deserve

I agree totally. I never meant to lump them all together. The crooks know who they are & the honest ones need to keep pressing the fight. I just wish they could all move on to bigger & better agencies like most of us did a long time ago.

Moving on to other agencies just puts a band aid on wanting to be home and making a difference there. Regardless of how much crap you take from upper echlons it still feels good to just get out there and do your job. After all these years I still miss that place and the guys on my shift.

His "current" girlfriend left him for a biker while he's in prison. He's wondering why she hasn't called or came to visit.... TRUE.....HILARIOUS!

Wow!!! I think if anyone has a reason to dislike him it would be me...seeing that's my father. Yeah he didn't have anything to do with us and he mother did take care of him, but that's none of your business and it makes you low and sorry to put out my family issues on the internet! Everyone of you are disgusting for the comments you have wrote on here!!!

Sweetheart, I am praying for you and your family. Your Dad needs help. Although he has committed crimes worthy of prison, I hope that they show him mercy and get him the help that he needs. My prayers are for all of you. Please keep your chin up, and don't read this garbage anymore! The righteous show mercy to those in need. A person never knows when they will be in need of mercy! A person receives what they put out, and if it is negative, then that is what they will receive.

I pray for the best for you and your family. Although it will not be easy, please take solice in the fact that there are people out here who care.

Danielle, it most certainly is our business, when a useless junkie thief is allowed out of jail time and time again so he can continue to use / sell drugs and steal from hard working citizens while THEY are at work.

Grandfather or not, I wouldn't let my kid hang with him. He doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself. Never did... never will. The only thing he'll ever be able to teach your child is how to be useless. If you want your child to end up using drugs, living in a camper and stealing people's shit, then, your dad is the "man" (not really) to teach him.

There's a pathetic drug culture in Fenton and Danny Hamby helped to create it. Piss on him.
