Gunn’s bond reduction motion denied

Alleged baby beater Linda Jessica Gunn was in court Sept. 16 seeking a reduction in her cash bond of $250,000 set by Judge Byron Smith Aug. 14. Judge Tommy Wilson heard out Gunn’s attorney J. Lansing Kimmey and denied the motion. Kimmey argued his client was entitled to reasonable bond because she had been in jail over 90 days without being indicted. He noted she is pregnant again and set for a psychological evaluation soon. ”All we are asking for is some reasonable bond. She has been in jail seven or eight months without an indictment. She has no previous record at all except of a shoplifting case,” Kimmey argued. Assistant district attorney Matt Bridges recounted the case against Gunn. ”She has admitted breaking her three-month-old daughter’s leg. The child had injuries to the head – head trauma. There were broken ribs. She admits to throwing the child up against a headboard multiple times,” Bridges said. Judge Wilson had some concerns over Lamar taxpayers paying for the birth of the child Gunn is currently carrying but was assured she had insurance. He then denied the bond reduction but agreed to reconsider if Gunn is not indicted by the December term Lamar grand jury.
