just let him go already. anyone who has been to his hearings can see that the prosecution has nothing on this guy. what ever happened to your right to a fair and speedy trial? this happened in Dec. 09 and here it is nearing 2011 with probably another year or so before he actually makes it to trial. violation of constitutional rights? i think so.

no one has the right to say anything, you wasnt there so you dont know what happened! I agree with josh, get it over with and whatever happens happens, how many child molestors are let go every year??? thats just the same as murder without self defense but yet they get there court over with in 3 months time with a slap on the wrist and probation and able to live a life outside of bars, but everyone else for child support, bad checks, etc get 5 to 10 years??

Shakin my head hella hard at all these over the internet tough guys. Hahahaha. The dude is gonna rot in prison. Thats where he belongs. And I can't lie I laugh every time i see the guy's picture cuz he is sure gonna make someone a nice little g/f in prison. The dude has been locked up since it happend and has caught how many other assault charges in there?? That surely don't help his case at all. Self defense is stabbing a guy maybe once or twice but over twenty times is way beyond self defense. Better hope he has a good lawyer to help him try to prove that one..

I can't wait for Trial I hope all of you are there to see what really happened; at this point everyone is speculating what happened. There is only one thing we all KNOW Jimmy is dead and Waylon Hedrick admitted doing it, that he is in jail awaiting trial. That’s all anyone on this page knows. There are only four people that REALLY know what happened that night, the Victim, the murder, the witness and God. Since no one on this page are the above I would say you don’t know.
You say "what ever happened to your right to a fair and speedy trial? this happened in Dec. 09 and here it is nearing 2011 with probably another year or so before he actually makes it to trial. violation of constitutional rights?" (Oh and I left all of your mistakes so you can read it) Waylon gave up his "rights" when he decided to STAB, and kill someone?.....What about our right to spend time with our loved one, Jimmy Jr. to meet his Daddy, or for Waylon’s child to have a daddy for that matter. Waylon took that from us when he took Jimmy's life? I even feel sorry for Waylon’s Mom, as a mother I could not imagine what it must feel like to know that you raised a murder? It’s just sad at how many lives were changed by one person’s decision.
Also here is a little bit of reading for you Waylon fans:

Here is some info on “speedy trial”
Speedy trial;
Defendants in criminal cases have the right to a speedy trial. In Barker v. Wingo, 407 U.S. 514 (1972), the Supreme Court laid down a four-part case-by-case balancing test for determining whether the defendant's speedy trial right has been violated in the case. The four factors are:
• Length of delay: A delay of a year or more from the date on which the speedy trial right "attaches" (the date of arrest or indictment, whichever first occurs) was termed "presumptively prejudicial," but the Court has never explicitly ruled that any absolute time limit applies.
• Reason for the delay: The prosecution may not excessively delay the trial for its own advantage, but a trial may be delayed to secure the presence of an absent witness or other practical considerations.
• Time and manner in which the defendant has asserted his right: If a defendant agrees to the delay when it works to his own benefit, he cannot later claim that he has been unduly delayed.
• Degree of prejudice to the defendant which the delay has caused.
In Strunk v. United States, 412 U.S. 434 (1973), the Supreme Court ruled that if the reviewing court finds that a defendant's right to a speedy trial was violated, then the indictment must be dismissed and/or the conviction overturned. The Court has held that, since the delayed trial is the state action which violates the defendant's rights, no other remedy would be appropriate. Thus, a reversal or dismissal of a criminal case on speedy trial grounds means that no further prosecution for the alleged offense can take place.
Sounds to me like Wayon/ his consel may have agreed to delay the trial for their benefit? I don’t know and really I don’t care, I think both families are ready for this to be over.

He wouldn't be in there if he didn't kill someone? So Waylon is always the Victim, Right? Is that what you are saying? I am not trying to be mean at all just the facts. He kills someone, he confessed, he went to jail, he gets into two or three fights in jail? I mean, do you not see a pattern?

We all do things that we regret but we dnt post them on the Internet for everyone to c it's just wrong. There is a lot of ppl that have killed other ppl over stupid little thing such as money and stuff but there is more to stories than what u or anyone could c. Waylon is rly a kind hearted guy and I know that if he could take it back he would. But u can't change the past and just have to move on and forgive bc that's the only thing u can do. The fights he got into n jail were for defending himself.

Kind hearted people do not KILL people they just dont do it? Waylon is always claiming to "defend" himself? Accourding to everyone else he is a ver picked on person?? Waylon cant take it back, trust me we wish he could too. Do you know what we would do for 30 minutes with our Jimmy, you get 30 minutes with Waylon. If Waylon would take it back if he could and this is so hard for him then he needs to tel the whole truth, take is punishment and be done.Why drag it on, I don't understandt, it dont make sense if he did it and he admitted to doing it why does there need to be a trial? Again I am not a mean person, I just want to understand?

I'm sry for ur loss but Waylon is a good hearted guy. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And I know that if there was a way to go back to that night and change things Waylon would do anything to go back. Even rly good ppl do crapy things sometimes. But does that mean we should hold grudges? Not forgive? I noticed n ur first comment that u used god as knowing what happend that night, but according to the bible we killed jesus who was absolutly perfect and we still got forgiveness. I am truly sorry about ur loss and I hope that u will b able to find it in ur heart to forgive Waylon. And I know its hard to do but god is with ur loved one right now.

You seem like a very nice person, and I don't really know how I feel about forgiving him, maybe someday I don't know but I know I cannot right now. However, you didn't answer my question if he could go back and do it all over then that means he knows he did something wrong. Why go through this whole trial thing if he knows what he did was wrong? Waylon made a decision to do what he did, no one forced him to do anything so that's really not being at the wrong place at the wrong time? Just think if the roles were reversed would you feel the same? I can tell you with confidence that if my family member took another persons life then they should stand up take it like a man.
Being at the wrong place at the wrong time once again makes Waylon a Victim. He is not the victim here. You know the most victimized are the children. Jim's baby will never have met his dad and Waylon's child who will have to see his Daddy behind bars. It is all just sad all the way around.

If things would have been reversed, yes I would b vry sad and I know where u r coming from bc when I found out what happened I was vry sad. But like u said earlier there are only 3 ppl who knows what happened that night. So just listen to them and c if u separate what happened from lies. I know u r angry with Waylon at this point and time and I know if u do get to where u can. Maybe if u just listen to what Waylon says then u can c that even though this situation happened he does know what happened. I'm not saying he's the victim I'm just saying give him a chance to explain how things occured.
