Court records: 18-year-old charged in drive-by shooting was free on bond after weapons arrest

By Kyle Feldscher

An 18-year-old Ann Arbor man is charged with shooting an 18-year-old man in the shoulder Sunday morning while he was free on bond in a separate case, court records show.

Torrey Juide is charged with assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to court records. He was arraigned Monday at the Washtenaw County Jail, where he was held as of 3 p.m. Monday.

Juide is charged with shooting an 18-year-old Ypsilanti man once in the shoulder sometime before 1:58 a.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of South State Street. Ann Arbor police Detective Bill Stanford said the two teens knew each other and had previous confrontations.

“It was a drive-by type shooting,” Stanford said. “There were multiple witnesses and a distinct vehicle involved. We tracked the vehicle to Tecumseh and were able to make the arrest.”

Juide and an 18-year-old woman were arrested Sunday in Tecumseh by Ann Arbor police investigators, with the assistance of the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office and the Tecumseh police.

Stanford said he was told Juide’s bond was set at $50,000 cash. There was no record of the bond available from jail records Monday afternoon. The 18-year-old woman who was also arrested in the case was not charged, Stanford said.

Officials from the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office were not immediately available to comment on the decision to not charge the woman.

The incident came a little more than a month after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace.

Juide was charged with possession of a billy club and carrying a concealed weapon earlier this year. Detective Chris Fitzpatrick, of the Ann Arbor Police Department, said the charges stemmed from a December incident.

“It was a suspicious subjects call, a possible drug dealing complaint,” Fitzpatrick said. “Officers came across him and he had a billy club in the car and it was his.”

Magistrate Thomas Truesdell, records show, arraigned Juide on the charges on Jan. 15. Truesdell gave him a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, allowing him to leave the jail for free.

On Feb. 21, Juide pleaded guilty to an added third count of disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor, records show. In exchange, the felony charges of possession of a billy club and carrying a concealed weapon were dismissed.

He was scheduled to be sentenced in the case on April 19, according to court records.

The allegations against Juide will surely raise more questions about the amount of bond given to accused criminals, who then go on to be charged in other crimes while their cases are pending.

In the last two weeks, Javare Holmes was arrested and charged with 11 felonies — all committed while he was free on bond from a May 2012 case. The news that Holmes was able to leave jail and allegedly commit more crimes upset many members of the community.

Juide graduated from Skyline High School in June 2012 and is a former member of the school’s varsity football team.

Update this case please


Sun, Mar 31, 2013 : 8:52 p.m.

Ann Arbor has a gang problem and you guys are idiots, start looking into what these people getting locked up are repping


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 1:55 p.m.

My earlier comment was taken down, my point was --kids do make bad decisions, can we as a community come together and help each other. Everyone is not a great parent, if you see a kid doing something stupid try to step in and say something. I think we are to scared to get into someone's personal business but the fact is if someone would have stepped into this young mans life sooner, he maybe would have understood there was a better way to handle this situation. I do believe family is to blame, we all have aunts and uncles and friends who would rather watch the kid make mistakes that to tell him the cold truth, stop acting stupid and have some sense. I am harsh with my kids and harsh on anyone they hand around with and I do offend people at times but its out of love. Kids need guidence from adults I think people have forgotton that. No you cannot hang out all hours of the night, yes you have to be in at a certain time, no you cannot smoke weed and do stupid stuff. Go to school, get a job and live a productive life. Crazy right?


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 6:29 a.m.

what makes a drive-by shooting stand out from a regular shooting. what is the point on how it was shut.?


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 4:39 a.m.

So he was out on bond for having a billy club... ...then goes on to shoot someone, who survives... Does anyone else see the NEXT crime being more serious or even deadly? Again, quite possibly while out on yet, another bond...


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 1:25 a.m.

WAIT! There may be an untold part to this story like the judge could not send the shooter to jail because of overcrowding do to those imprisoned for selling weed.


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 4:35 a.m.

I'm sure there's plenty of nonviolent offenders who would love to take his place in the free world...


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 3:24 p.m.

Magistrate Thomas Truesdell - words cannot describe his incompetence.

Patrick Maurer

Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 2:26 p.m.

Another Truesddell fiasco. It is time for him to be fired. He is the revolving door in the criminal (justice?) system.


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 2:24 p.m.

Shame on all of you that would comment on this post like you know this kid you all didn't know the situation that took place that night so how dare you say they should give him time for this.I know Torrey personally and he was always a loving good guy he always kept a smile on his face so if your going to comment please think about what you say because it hurts when I come on here and see people saying give him 11 years Torrey is like a big brother to me. #FreeTJuide


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 4:42 a.m.

Who cares about a smile? If he had shot a member of your family would you be saying the same? ...or would you be joining the others with your pitchfork and torch asking for prison time?

Susan Ursus

Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 3:49 a.m.

He smiled a lot? How is that even relevant? He SHOT SOMEONE WHILE ON BOND. Once you shoot someone, you cease to be a "loving good guy." This guy is a murder waiting to happen unless he gets a good, long time out.


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 5:39 p.m.

I do know Torrey and what is being said is true. He was a good kid but something changed somewhere to where he wanted to be a thug.I think the main point your are forgeting is he shot someone and could have killed him. This violence needs to stop and he needs to stop. He should have been at home chilling while out on bond instead of out casuing havoc. He could have killed someone.


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 2:48 p.m.

So are you saying that what he is accused of didn't happen? That he didn't really shoot somebody? And at a hotel where there were lots of witnesses nearby ( and likely dozens of people INSIDE the building sleeping) who were all put at risk when bullets started flying? Or are you saying that he had a smile on his face when he did it?


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 1:07 p.m.

I see a lot of people making jokes and mocking the ACLU and the BOE, and anyone who may say anything positive about the kid. There's a real issue here though, these kids are out of hand! Last year it was article after article about robberies from the two convicted in the delivery robberies to the Northside liquor store robbery as well as the man convicted with pizza robbery in Ypsi along with a femal and that guy is now facing murder charges in the West Wililow shooting. This year I am again seeing a repeat of young criminals. I won't point fingers saying home failed them, school failed them, etc. But I do think we as a society should be concerned at this growing pattern of young criminals. Its saddening to see in my account. Where are these kids becoming lost at? Its easy to blame a parent but I highly doubt every criminal had unloving, bad or neglectful parents. All the jokes in the world can be made, we can poke fun at all the entities we like but the reality is there's a real problem lying in front of us. And would everyone be so crass if these perpetrators were their kids, relatives or neighbors? Would blame still be pointed?

We can start solving the problem by keeping criminals of all ages where they belong--in prison. I've lost track of how many years in a row Lansing has been balancing the budget by dumping criminals back out on the street. The fact is, no treatment for criminality works particularly well. The sooner the Governor and the Legislature figure that out the better for all of us.


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 11:55 a.m.

This is clearly Ann Arbor Public School's fault, Skyline should have done a better job educating him.

RE: "The news that Holmes was able to leave jail and allegedly commit more crimes upset many members of the community." - Hah! Kyle, are you developing a knack for understatement? ;-) That line certainly qualifies and I think outrage extends well beyond the artificial borders of "pro-gun / anti-gun." Since I'm a gun owner and possess a license to "carry concealed" (pistols) - I can report that I am 100% convinced that I'd suffer severe legal consequences if I used my gun in any way but in defense of life (or for hunting if carrying an appropriate pistol and wanted it concealed to keep it dry). So it'll be of great interest to see how Mr. Juide fares with a jury. Likewise, it's accurate to say WE are outraged at the way Mr. Holmes was let loose on bond, only to commit a long string of burglaries. More gun laws which affect only honest gun owners while going easy on actual violent gun-using criminals? NO, I DON'T THINK SO. We're getting wise to the "Feel Good" gun control laws: they don't even work after they're passed - except to threaten the freedom of non-criminals who're in the vast majority. Regardless of the idea they make legislators like Debbie Stabenaw and Dianne Feinstein look good. Regardless of the idea that Barack Obama looks good to his fans after calling for more gun bans, owner registrations, etc. - which have nothing to do with the horrific crime which prompted him. It's silly ideological crap but it's more than that too: we pay for police to be out catching criminals who not only are released to do more crimes, they must be encouraged to keep using violence since there's NO restraint on them! We expect our law enforcement men and women to remain dedicated, but our own judges send the criminals back on the street to undermine police spirit. Why should anyone have to face the same dangerous criminals over and over as a "routine" part of their job?!

Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 1:27 a.m.

Wait so for clarification, what does the guy with 11 felonies have to do with this incident? I'm confused.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 11:54 p.m.

"the felony charges of possession of a billy club and carrying a concealed weapon were dismissed." Right as usual, what's the point of adding more gun laws when the ones we already have ARE NOT BEING ENFORCED????


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 4:34 a.m.

@TessM, I didn't vote on your comment but think it might help to explain that Ricebrnr's point is valid. The laws concerning concealed weapons apply MOSTLY to guns but include knives, clubs, etc. as a convenience to law enforcement and prosecutors. Police and prosecutors follow up: by treating concealment of knives, etc. AS IF they were guns. It's worth mentioning that there's a kind of generalization involved in the anti-gun-owner thinking: right now, in the UK, they're talking about applying "gun-like" restrictions to certain kinds of kitchen knives. So it's fair to "generalize" as Ricebrnr did in his statement. Pont of fact: Ricebrnr's response was to the way lawbreakers are given undeserved generosity regardless of the strictness of the law or how many new laws are generated to "stop criminals."


Tue, Mar 26, 2013 : 12:10 a.m.

I think in this case the "concealed weapon" was the billy club. The carrying concealed weapon charge is not limited to guns but can included weapons like switchblade knives and brass knuckles.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 11:38 p.m.

This guy probabbly had a bad childhood and is just misunderstood......maybe one more chance is in order.


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 4:31 a.m.

Oh yeah, because Ann Arbor is so incredibly rough and ghetto...


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 11:29 p.m.

This person should have been locked up for a mandatory 10 years for gun possession plus a sentence for his crime. Now he has a shooting victim in the hospital. It will cost society a lot of money for the victim, this guy's trial, etc., plus keeping his victim on SSI forever. This is exactly why people are against stricter gun laws for legal firearms. Because criminals have no limits on how many guns they can have or what they do with them. This whole story is shameful and repeated everyday all over this country. Illegal gun possession and use is treated like a joke. But a medical student from Tennessee showing up by mistake with her legal weapon in NY is thrown into prison and charged with a felony. I wish there were no guns, but all Congress wants to do is limit them for legal gun owners, not to make it tougher for criminals to have them.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 11:28 p.m.

For me, the big difference between Javare Holmes and Torrey Juide is that Javare Holmes skipped out on his court appearance while out on bond. The very purpose of bond is to ensure that the defendant returns to court. When Holmes skipped out, he demonstrated that losing his money was not a sufficient incentive to return to court. By itself, that should have automatically earned him a "flight risk" designation and eliminated the possibility of a low bond or 10%-bond on future arrests. Juide just seems to be running wild and escalating his behavior, and the magistrate rightly upped his bond to 50-large, cash money.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 10:46 p.m.

If the allegations are true, perhaps the BOE may have missed a teachable moment or two before he graduated from Skyline....oops according to the BOE he isn't an adult anyway at 18 because either the BOE cannot count or shuns societal norms for defining an adult, so no worries in the alternative realty in which the BOE dwells, thank goodness there are some adults oriented to reality in this town to try to keep it safe.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 10:34 p.m.

Ummmm....wasn't another violent crime committed recently by someone out on bond? or just out of jail? I can't remember so I can't look it up, but I swear I've read it recently. Someone help me out?


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 10:35 p.m.

Yeah never mind. I didn't catch that last paragraph. :/


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 10:10 p.m.

Sounds like yet another graduate of the Morris school of criminology...

is it true jesse jackson is coming to a2 to comment?


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 9:12 p.m.

This nails it perfectly, multiple felonies and allowed on the streets..............You hear people talk about enforcing laws on the books to reduce crime, this is a classic example of how it is not being done.


Mon, Mar 25, 2013 : 9:08 p.m.

Although I feel the original bond allowing him out o fjail for free, was too low. I find it disgusting, that after with intent to commit murder and other crimes as a result of this drive by shooting while out on bond, the new bond is set at $50,000. Once MIGHT be a forgivable instance, but come on, the 2nd time it should be a extremely high bond, as it appears this young man just does not "get it"!


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 4:29 a.m.

I guess I always thought that intent to murder was a violation of bond, therefore would be revoked...


Wed, Mar 27, 2013 : 1:14 a.m.

I agree. I do not know why setting bond is not dictated by law rather than letting a judge determine subjectively the size of the bond after spending five minutes reviewing details of the case.

Gorsh !!! Is this article suggesting that maybe these judges are a bit to LIBERAL ???? Naw ..I am sure these fair minded judges just saw the potential good in these young men, and didn't want to hamper their rehabilitation. Someone smoking a cigar near a school would probably get a higher bond . Ya Gotta luv dem ol' liberals.
