Kenosha’s DJ Droop will hopefully no longer be in the hizouse – courthouse, that is. A liberal Kenosha Assistant District Attorney made almost all of the charges go away for less than the price of a speeding ticket last Thursday.
Democrat Sydney Star entered into a plea agreement with Ronald Akiyas Gordon, who is also known as DJ Droop. Gordon didn’t take his multiple warrants seriously, and neither did the Kenosha DA’s office, run by Michael Graveley (D).
Gordon got an OWI in 2012 and hasn’t had his license since. He still drives, however, and didn’t install an ignition interlock device in his vehicle as ordered by the court. Having his license revoked and breathalyzer in his car is supposed to protect Kenosha County from death or great bodily harm. DJ Droop doesn’t care, and neither does the Kenosha DA’s office.
Kenosha County 2019CT258
On March 3, 2019, Gordon was stopped and arrested for driving on a revoked (due to OWI) license and failure to install ignition interlock. He was charged with both misdemeanors on April 2, 2019. He was released on a no-cash bail. He missed his very first court date of May 16, 2019, and Judge Schroeder ordered a $500 cash bond.
On August 19, 2019, the Kenosha DA’s office charged Gordon with bailjumping for missing court several times.
After almost three years on the run, Gordon was arrested on January 9, 2023, by the Pleasant Prairie Police Department for driving on a revoked (due to OWI) license, failure to install ignition interlock, and bailjumping. His girlfriend posted $600 cash bail and he was released pending a new court date. He was charged formally by the DA on February 1, 2023. Gordon was in court for this hearing. He was given a no-cash bail.
Three days later, Gordon was again arrested for driving on a revoked (due to OWI) license, no insurance, and bailjumping. He paid $2,000 cash bail and was released with a court date. On March 9, 2023, Gordon missed court again and a court commissioner ordered a $500 cash warrant.
On March 11, 2023, Gordon was involved in a disturbance at George’s Club Highview Tavern and police came. They charged him with obstructing an officer and took him in on the warrants.
In all, between all four criminal cases spanning four years, Gordon faced ten misdemeanor charges and almost eight years in the county jail:
5 Counts of Bailjumping
2 Counts of Failure to Install Ignition Interlock
3 Counts of Driving on a Revoked (due to OWI) License
Prosecutor Sydney Star dismissed 2 cases outright, and dismissed eight of the ten charges. He pled guilty to 2 counts of driving on a revoked (due to OWI) license. He was fined $150 per charges, less than a speeding ticket.
Gordon has a lengthy criminal history:
(3) Domestic Battery
Burglary any Building or Dwelling
(6) Disorderly Conduct
(4) Resist/Obstruct Officer
(7) Bail Jumping
Criminal Damage to Property
Criminal Trespass to Dwelling
Intentionally Contact Victim or Co-Actor
1 Year 7 month Prison Sentence
(3) Operating While Suspended/Revoked
Urinating in Public
Possession of THC
Possession of Intoxicants in Motor Vehicle
Uncharacteristically, Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Gerad Dougvillo signed off on this plea deal. The overly-generous deal was reached with the DA, undoubtedly due to Gordon’s ties to BLM and other left-wing organizations. This sends a message that in Kenosha County, skipping court, driving on a revoked license, OWI, and other crimes will be treated lightly, if you have the right political stance.
KCE isn’t the only media outlet that has noticed the soft-on-crime criminal justice system in Kenosha. Mark Belling, a conservative radio host out of Milwaukee, recently went on a long rant about just how weak the Criminal justice system in Kenosha. (00:09:45 Minute mark)
Let’s hope Gordon stays out of trouble.
