Prosecutors say couple admits igniting firebomb outside abortion clinic
The couple accused of igniting a Molotov cocktail outside a local abortion clinic have admitted that she made and ignited the explosive device and that he drove her to the clinic, prosecutors said today.
Patricia Dannielle Hughes, 24 and her boyfriend, Jeremy Lee Dunahoe, 18, of the 100 block of Lister Street made their initial court appearances today. They said they could not afford to hire their own lawyers so the judge appointed lawyers to represent them.
Bond for Hughes was set at $40,000 and bond for Dunahoe was set at $35,000. Both are currently held in the parish jail. Caddo District Judge Ramona Emanuel specifically ordered them to stay away from Hope Medical Group for Women if they are able to make bond.
Local authorities would not say what they knew about motive but said the couple is not believed to be part of an organized group.
They have not disclosed how the couple, who were arrested Saturday, became suspects.
Fire Department investigators said Hughes told them she made a Molotov cocktail at their home on Dec. 12 and was driven to the Kings Highway clinic by Dunahoe. The explosive device was placed on a sidewalk about three feet from the building and ignited. The clinic was not damaged.
Authorities said Dunahoe admitted knowing what was going to happen and driving Hughes to the clinic.
Hughes was booked on charges of manufacture of an incendiary device. Dunahoe was charged as an accessory after the fact to the manufacture and possession of an incendiary device.
Surveillance video from the clinic shows a woman igniting the fire bomb and then running to a car.
Robert's commentary begins here:
I am encouraged to see they had different last names yet lived at the same residence and I have never heard of them. EVER! Let me explain why this seemingly contrary fact to righteousness could be encouraging.
While I do not wish for a past tragedy to have happened on this couple..... It is my hope this indicates that they were damaged by the abortionist in some manner- perhaps came to their senses over the willful killing and struck out in rage. Perhaps sexually molested?
It would be better for natural consequences of an abortion to have this couple attack and get arrested instead of a REAL defender being taken off the streets.
Prayers for their change of heart to continue- right on through to their repentance of sin and salvation. May post abortive rage be their defense- (places blame back on the baby killers where it belongs) with no ties to abortion abolitionists may help as well toward their earthly salvation of no jail time-probation only- so that they may grow in Christ and learn from their mistakes- that Molotov cocktails will most likely bounce off buildings to break away from the structure.
I remember learning this in one of the John Brockhoeft's Prison Letters sent out monthly through Shelley back in the early 90s. I forget which defender, Shelly or Johnny B mentioned this should be a lesson learned from their previous failed attempts.
It is my opinion that lessons are best learned when the cost of learning is at the expense of another's past mistakes- rather than any possible future events in a defender's own life.
