New Trial Date Set for Coahoma County Woman


COAHOMA COUNTY—The Coahoma County Sheriff’s Office has reported a recent development in the case of Shereka Jurden, who was arrested on August 9, 2020, on charges of Felony Child Abuse. According to official records, Jurden’s bond was initially set at a substantial $150,000.00.

Jurden, who has been awaiting trial since her arrest, was scheduled to face trial on May 15 for the aforementioned charges. However, due to unpreparedness on the part of the District Attorney’s office, the trial was postponed. A new trial date has now been set for July 10, 2023.

In a recent turn of events, Jurden’s attorney requested a reduction in her bond amount. The request was heard by Circuit Judge Nowell, who granted the bond reduction from $150,000.00 to $15,000.00.
