Yup, the day after Mr. Epps appeared at his arraignment last week, he went out and got another Benz. Wife got to have a car, you see. The Clarion-Ledger reported:
After the federal government moved to seize two Mercedes-Benz vehicles owned by former corrections commissioner Chris Epps, Epps walked out of a dealership on Friday with a third.Mrs. Epps works at Mid-Delta Home Health.
Epps and his wife visited the Jackson dealership to get a car for Catherlean Epps to drive to work the day after pleading not guilty to corruption charges in federal court, said Epps' attorney.
"Mr. and Mrs. Epps have obtained another vehicle so that Mrs. Epps could go to work every day. I don't know what make or model or year nor do I know whether the vehicle was leased or purchased," Epps' attorney John Colette said. "I'm assuming it was leased, but again, I just don't have any particulars."
