Levi C. Acre-Kendell was charged with first degree reckless homicide earlier this month and is now facing additional bail jumping charges. The incident occurred in Wisconsin when Kendell who is from Minnesota stabbed Peter Kelly. Both men had been fishing on the St. Croix River when an argument began. The argument apparently went on for many hours near the boat landing. The argument continued and Kendell allegedly stabbed Kelly and killed him. Kendall’s group of friends ended up fleeing the scene. Kendall’s bail was set at $125,000 dollars.
Recently, this case has been back in the news because Kendall ended up being released from custody. He has now also been charged with jumping bail after he posted two messages on twitter. Pursuant to his release conditions, he was not allowed to have contact with any of the friends that he was with during the encounter. However, his friends followed him on twitter and reported that they saw his messages. His messages said “If you are praying for me, please keep the Kelly family in mind as well, I never intended for this to happen and I wish it never did” and “going to Chipotle to gain back 15 pounds I lost.” He was then arrested in Isanti County, Minnesota.
This is just another example of how individuals get into more serious trouble when they decide to post online. If anyone as been charged with a crime, it is best to refrain from posting anything online. Individuals should not write on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. It is possible and likely that the posts will be used against you in court. It is also likely that even if the posts are deleted, that they can still be used against you. Each party can issue subpoenas from the corporations to find out what was posted. They have been many stories in the news about internet postings coming back to haunt Defendant’s in their criminal cases. Here, Kendell is not only violating his conditions of release but he is also implicating himself in his own case. If you have been charged with a crime, do not make any statements online or to anyone. Contact Minnesota criminal defense attorney to help you fight the charges against you.
