Walnut Grove mayor indicted.

A federal grand jury indicted Walnut Grove Mayor Grady Sims for allegedly sexually assaulting a prisoner and then tampering with a witness to interfere with an investigation. Mr. Sims will face an initial appearance in federal court today.




Count one states Mr. Sims "sexually assaulted "the victim"*, an inmate under the custody and control of SIMS at the Walnut Grove Transition Center, resulting in bodily injury to "the victim"....

Count two alleges Mr. Sims "did knowingly attempt to corruptly persuade "the victim" by instructing "the victim" to lie to investigators regarding the events in Count 1, with the intent to influence the testimony of "the victim" in an official proceeding, namely a federal grand jury proceeding.."



Looks like this is not the first time the Mayor has drawn scrutiny when it comes to prisons.

wonder if MP is code for male prisoner. that makes it more salacious

12:56 - don't know what MP is code for, but Walnut Grove is a facility for young boys and men - only. It has no female inmates.

City of Flowood almost lost their rights to inmate labor over these kind of hijinks a few years ago.

the transition centers housed both male and females.

If he likes having sex with male prisoners so much I guess this situation will be a great improvement to his mundane life.

Walnut Grove is real quiet, the town is all old buildings, the prison was a boon for the economy

First, Sims was warden from October 2009 - Jan 2010 of the Walnut Grove Transition Centers #1 and #2 one housing males and one housing females. WGTC are private facilities housing MDOC inmates. Both were restitution centers. The Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility is totally separate and houses male juvenile inmates. The facility is owned by the state and walnut grove correctional authority and is managed by a private firm called GEO.

I was the "Linda" poster. I'm not sure if KF posted it or not. I'm not sure of how to really articulate my point, but I offer the following:

Small town people know about things going on and go to great measure to hide them. The greater the prominence in a small town, the greater the hiding/ignoring/denying the truth.

For God's sake they all put on bumper stickers many years ago saying, "I love Dr. ___," after he was brought to court over claiming medicare benefits on people that were deceased.

9:30 You articulated your point quite well.
It's not just small towns or even all small towns. In a city, it can be a social or organized group that has a member accused of wrong doing.
It's a combination of denial and a tribal mentality that develops in toxic groups.
The problem comes when the mentality becomes a part of the cultural values. Then it's not about "defending your own kind" anymore, it's condoning and encouraging wrong doing. It's then about sending the wrong message to the next generation.
This is why we have Sims and Dedmon and Graham and Irby and Bell and Frazier all the others we've had in disgrace on this blog.

Isn't Walnut Grove a town on Little Louse on the Prairie.

I think we should have a caption contest for the picture.

"Ya'll stay here and ask me questions. I'm gonna go over yonder."

"...and right over there is where we are building the town discotheque and sex dungeon. The dungeon will, of course, be in the basement. Above the disco will be a revolving restaurant offering 360 degree, panoramic views of our beautiful downtown, that will serve locally produced and sourced, seasonal ingredients, fresh from the farm."

"Look! It's Godzilla!" (then runs away)

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time.
