So I just finished writing about Picasso Joseph Dejoachim being accused of First Degree Murder, assault and drive by shooting, and for the heck of it I thought, "I should check out that other guy on the jail roster whose last name is ALSO Dejoachim."
When I clicked on the name, I thought I was seeing double. I thought it was some kind of jail roster fluke. So I double checked, but it's not a mistake.
Socrates Jefferson DeJoachim, who must have had the same wannabe intellectual parents as Picasso Dejoachim, is ALSO charged with ATTEMPTED first degree murder, assault, and drive by shooting. In addition, there is a federal hold listed on the roster, which means the BIG law enforcement agencies want a piece of him, too...
Socrates has a birthday of November 23, 1988. He was booked into the jail the same hour as Picasso, on October 17. However, Socrates lists a different address, though also in North Minneapolis:
3751 Lyndale Ave. N.
The property is a rental owned by Mark G. Langmade of Plymouth, MN.
And, like his relative, Socrates has a rap sheet as long as your arm. Here it is, and keep in mind not all CHARGES are necessarily CONVICTIONS.
27-CR-07-041178 DE JOACHIM, SOCRATES J 11/23/1988 06/20/2007 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Brookdale Crim/Traf Mandatory Closed Traffic - Careless Driving Drivers' Licenses - Driving without License in Possession
27-CR-10-38802 DEJOACHIM, SOCRATES JEFFERSON 11/23/1988 08/24/2010 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Carry/Possess Pistol w/out Permit - Public Place - Gross Misdemeanor; Second or Subsequent - Felony
This charge would tend to imply Socrates picked up a felony conviction in Chi--
I mean, um, outside of Minnesota. In some other state. This charge was serious enough that I looked into how it was resolved and, yes, he was convicted. In fact, he owes $50 on the charge right now. He was sentenced to a year but it was stayed. Had a year of probation and completed it.

Oh, how ironic since he's now accused of DRIVE BY SHOOTING.
A bunch of online mugshot sites list the fact Socrates was arrested, but only Busted Mug Shots Dot Com has escaped the cloud of lame hanging over the other sites and has an actual image, click here.
As with Picasso DeJoachim, this blog is trying to learn what ATTEMPTED murder these two are accused of committing.
