Pisgah Man Will be Allowed the Opportunity to Make Bond

A Pisgah man will be allowed the opportunity to make bond – in Jackson County – for the December 11th shooting death of a Henagar man.

According to court documents, Shawnon Ray Jordan, 44 of Henagar – was shot at a location on County Road 88 in Pisgah; he was taken to Erlanger Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.  Joshua Goolesby, 32 of Pisgah, was taken into custody by Jackson County and DeKalb County Deputies – charged with murder – and certain person forbidden to possess a firearm.

He was in court last Wednesday, before the Jackson County District Court Judge Don Word, for an Aniah’s law hearing which could have resulted in him being held without bond. Through an agreement made with both the state and the defense attorneys bond for Goolesby was set at $150,000 – with conditions that include electronic monitoring, and that he also have no contact with the victim’s family.

Defense attorney Jay Forrest Fleming of Huntsville, filed a motion, asking for a preliminary hearing for Goolesby.
