Justice Court Judge indicted

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:

Madison County Judge Arrested for Simple Assault on a Vulnerable Person
February 13, 2015

Jackson, MS—A Madison County Judge has been arrested for simple assault on a vulnerable person, confirmed Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Madison County Justice Court Judge Bill Weisenberger turned himself in to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office Thursday following indictment by a Madison County Grand Jury.

The indictment accuses the defendant of striking the vulnerable person in the head .  The  assault is alleged to have occurred during a visit to The Canton Flea Market. 

“The law does not discriminate, and the Grand Jury has given us our marching orders,” said Attorney General Hood.  “We look forward to presenting the facts of this case in court.”

The defendant was released on a $10,000 bond.  If convicted, he faces up to five years behind bars.    The charge against him is a felony.

The case is being investigated by Victor Mason (Yes, THE Victor Mason) and will be prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander of the Attorney General’s Office Public Integrity Division following recusal by the Madison County District Attorney’s Office.

Victor Mason is a, ... en'm he'ghm, excuse me, retired JPD officer, who has been spending time at the A.G.'s office for the last several months, waiting to qualify to run for Hinds County Sheriff. If nothing more, he is a "sharp dressed dude".

He be cool, real cool. Wonder who did the investigation for, um, "with" Mason.

But, but, BUT a SPLC-loving, leftist, Maddow groupie, atheist white male goes off the deep end killing 3 Muslim students in NoCarolina and not a peep outta ol' DonnerKay.

Had that been a killer with Tea Party or conservative or Republican connections the LaddFraud would be wall-to-wall with the coverage.

Good news. Weisenberger is a redneck thug who had no business on the bench or wearing a bag. An arrogant bully and a jerk.

Didn't give a damn about the law, or make an effort to learn it. Good riddance. Hope he goes to prison.

Anonymous said...

I will be watching how Victor Mason handles this investigation. I think he will make a very good sheriff for Hinds county. So far he has my vote.

Thanks for correcting the bag thing. Been wondering what the hell this guy was doing wearing a bag (over his head or a nice Guicci?)........

I don't know what happened one way or the other. But for an elected official, (especially a judge) in this day and time, to slap or hit someone followed by a racial slur in a an area with so many witnesses seems odd.
Now, if it were in the 70's and it was justice court judge Dallas Williams....then I could believe it.

five to one odds Kingfish has one of the players on the radio show nobody ever listens to next week.

This incident was the logical conclusion.

After Weisenberger was elected justice court judge, he continued to serve as a volunteer medic with the Sheriff's swat team.

This was in clear violation of state law (both separation of powers under the Constitution of 1892, and many AG opinions.) You can't serve in both the judicial and executive branches.

He was told this by lawyers and judges. He ignored it. "That ain't gonna be a problem," is what he said when challenged on it.

He thought he was above the law. He was a judge -- albeit not in a "real" court -- and a constable (fake cop).

And he got eat-up with all that small-time power.

A stupid redneck who brought shame on the state is about to go down. It's a good thing.

Anonymous said...

Im sure none of the people posting saw what happened-that's why we have court, innocent til proven guilty. I like Bill and although I think he is overzealous at times, I like him and pray he is proven innocent. He lost his son in a tragic accident and he and his family have worked in law enforcement and with fire department for years. Wish for good things not bad onto people.

Anonymous said...

Do your homework 5:32 he was not a fake cop. Before ever being elected as a constable he was a law enforcement officer who went to the police academy. You know the 10 week course which you have not the balls to go through. And as Bill can be obnoxious at times he is not stupid enough to hit and slander someone rather racial or not in public or not. This whole case stems from the naacp not wanting Bill in office in the first place. That RACIST William truly of the canton naacp is the one pushing for this prosecuting. The A G's office does not have the balls to stand up to him(William truly)

Anonymous said...

I don't know the man nor do I know what happened.

However the thought of a Judge (even a Justice Court Judge), directing traffic/parking at a flea market is sad & funny at the same time.

Anonymous said...

5:32 What is the real reason you are spouting so much venom in your post???? What charge did Bill arrest you on or what did he charge you with in his court???? It had to be something or you would not be this adamant. It is obvious that this is a lot more than what you have posted on this blog. Remember, if you do not break the law, you can not get arrested or hauled into court!

That shit has to be made up.

He was working WITH the sheriff's office while a JUDGE?!

That wasn't sarcasm. That was disbelief.

A judge doubling as a cop is pissing on the very notion of a system fair to the accused.

Nixon would be proud.

Anonymous said...

With all the racist posting that goes on here on JJ, some redneck screws up in more ways than one, and people still come to his aid. The evidence could lay at their feet and they would still defend him. It really shows the true nature of the majority of posters on this site.

Picture That said...

He was serving (but rarely) as a volunteer medic and first responder, not in a law enforcement capacity. In Podunk, Mississippi, it's not unusual for people to wear multiple hats when needed. You might even find a dentist serving as NAACP chairman while running unsuccessfully for office following a stint as irrational mayor.

Anonymous said...

There are supposedly 'eye witnesses' to the slapping incident at the flea market. Lets see if they come to court testify.

Bill should have let being a cop go when he was elected a judge but he couldn't. Why, I've got no clue but it appears now that he will have to let it go and no agency in Madison county or the state will hire him. I guess now he will have to live off the money made when the family land was sold and be content to work at Tractor Supply like he has been doing.

Anonymous said...

"And as Bill can be obnoxious at times he is not stupid enough to hit and slander someone rather racial or not in public or not. "

About ten witnesses who gave newspaper interviews at the time of the incident said otherwise. No witness disputed the events in the indictment.

"Remember, if you do not break the law, you can not get arrested or hauled into court!"

Oh, horse**** and you know it. The Innocence Project has gotten 100s of wrongly-imprisoned, INNOCENT people who were framed or railroaded by crooked cops and prosecutors freed, several from Death Row.

Anonymous said...

Taking your comment at face value 8:38, if he "couldn't" (indicating inability) let go of enforcement power when he took judiciary power, he never had the proper proper psychological makeup to be a fair judge. A decent forensic shrink's notes on anyone who would be both cop and judge would be highly interesting.

Anonymous said...

You are absolutely correct, 7:49. The ignorance on here is glaringly obvious.

Anonymous said...

Its funny how people react. . .

Elected official in Jackson does something stupid = the sky is falling

Elected official in Madison County does something stupid = Much less attention (crickets, relatively).

One would think that a judge committing a violent crime against a disabled person (while using a racial slur) would invoke more outrage than Kenneth Stokes screwing over a bus company. But in Mississippi, it is the other way around. Is it any wonder this state is last in (just about) everything.

What about the black Jackson police officer who tried to kill the unarmed white redneck at St. Padded parade a couple years back? He's still employed with JPD, right? A baton to the head seems more serious than a slap across the face.

Anonymous said...

Um... 7:37, the video is still online. Do you really want to go there? The kid from Rankin County was clearly the aggressor and you know it. And "tried to kill" really??? Can you atleast TRY to show some objectivity.

Anonymous said...


The kid from rankin county did not assault the officer. And yes, tried to kill is an accurate term. Considering officers are trained that a blow to the head is potentially fatal, the officer was aware of what could hve happened. The officer let his thug emotions take over and he tried to kill the redneck.

Under no corcumstances is an officer allowed to strike the head with a baton. Unless lethal force is justified.

Libel? said...

How does KangFush get away with claiming somebody has 'banged every hot chick in town'?

He often claims to be an investigative reporter, a journalist, a news person. Now this?

Anonymous said...

Haha, wow!

The kid is clearly the aggressor. He swings at the cops (probably would have made contact if not for his friend holding him back) while calling them "f---ing n----r." The natural consequence followed - the disorderly kid was subdued with force.

Yes, the cop used a baton. Yes, the cop could have killed the kid IF that was what he wanted to do. The cop did not kill the kid, despite his ability to do so. Is every use of a baton by a police officer an attempt to kill?

. . . And the cop is the thug??? Okay, Al Sharpton.

I'm actually glad you posted. It shows just how many hoops people like you will jump through to abide by your double standard. It is an excellent illustration of just how ridiculous you and your ilk are. I will pray for you.

The point stands: you guys have a double standard, and it is obvious to everyone but you.

The Jack Abbott reference should have given away it was a joke.

Harvey and Gaillett would have diligently overseen the implementation of the Siemens contract. Lumumba was largely detached from his responsibilities as hands on chief executive. Willie Bell was over his head.Kishia Powell is doing a good job.

Anonymous said...

The redneck never swang at the officer. He was pushed by the female. He shouldn't have insulted the officer, but the officer had no right to use lethal force.

And yes, the JPD officer was a thug. The majority are. Any respectable officer of the law would agree that the thug should have been relieved of his duties

Glad you feel so strongly though. Next time your neighbor calls me a cracker, I'll be sure to bash his skull in with a baton, since you seem that as an appropriate response to verbal insults.

And if any cops out there are reading this, if my friend or family was struck in the head by a thug officer I would blow said officers brains out.

Anonymous said...

The mere fact that the thug officer never recieved disciplinary action shows how pathetic JPD is.

Anonymous said...

1:16 and 1:18 (since you are clearly the same person), did you watch the video? Maybe a "swing" was not the right thing to call what the kid did (because it was so uncoordinated), but the kid definitely went after the officer (and likely would have succeeded had his friend not held him back. Once again, you're doing mental gymnastics to take the "right" side.

What is your opinion about the Michael Brown case? Considering your opinions about this Rankin County thug, your explanation should be interesting.

Say what you want about Bill Weisenberger. You can't deny how awesome he looks in the Madison County Sheriff's Office SWAT uniform at the Christmas Toy Drive at Wal Mart on Sheriff Randy Tucker's Facebook page this past December.

Why don't some of you jerks form y'all a KKK chapter and get you some white sheets and go for it! I read an article today comparing ISIS to the KKK. Both claim to be religious fundamentalist, one Islamic the other Christain. Put a bunch of fundamentalist in a sack, shake them up and when you pour them they all look the same!

Anonymous said...

I think that 1:16 is off his/her meds. Sounds like he/she has been hit in the head a time or two. And so 1:16 you would commit a more severe crime than would be committed against your family. Go to Whitfield you psychopathic nut job.

Anonymous said...

6:05 I missed the photos/videos of the KKK decapitating anyone last month, or the threat by the KKK today to burn alive all the prisoners they displayed in cages TODAY.

Please provide a reference for your belief to show it's not a delusion - you must read more papers than I do.

Anonymous said...

8:16, are you REALLY trying to take up for the KKK? Are you out of your mind??

Anonymous said...

8:16 is sticking up for the KKK. No, these commenters are soooooo not racist.

Your KKK mentality is dying out. Sure, the KKK might not have done those things in the past month or today. Why, you ask? Because the KKK is a dying breed that is composed of the lowest of the low in the most remote, obscure, and backwards parts of even this State. They simply do not have the resources or the influence to do what they did in the past.

The recent KKK inactivity has nothing to do with whether or not they are more decent than ISIS. I love how you had to narrow that down as being in the last month.

When the KKK still had influence in this Country and State, the type of behavior you have described was standard and accepted (against African-Americans, Jews, Catholics, Atheists, and just about anyone else who doesn't have sex with their cousins).

Keep commenting. It makes it even more clear how little stock we should put into your opinions.

Weisenberger never arrested me.

But I've practiced law in that courtroom, plenty.

I send an affidavit to the commission on judicial performance when he sentenced a black man to 5 days in prison for a DUI 1st offense, when the maximum is 48 hours. He did this while he was under investigation for the flea market incident.

I'm a right-winger who hates when people play the race card. I think Bill Truly is a race-baiting piece of filth, and I don't give two damns for the NAACP.

But Bill Weisenberger is a redneck thug, who had no business wearing a badge or a judge's robe.

He also sentenced someone for a crime that doesn't exist.

Now come on back at me, Billy Bob. Bill didn't arrest me. He's just a stupid piece of shit.

Anonymous said...

9:09 if you were an actual lawyer you would know that misdemeanor convictions do not go to prison. And what crime does not exist are you talking about?

Anonymous said...

I'm not 9:09 but if you don't think 5 days in jail is imprisonment, my guess is you are one of this guy's comrades (or more fittingly a fellow super soldier) who believed it was ok for a judge to wear a badge.

On a related note, wtf was that sheriff thinking?

6:05: I'm responding to your response to my post about KKK and ISIS. You, sir are a fool. Of course the article was comparing the KKK and their past record to ISIS and their current horrific activities. Now would you like for me to go further? If you do, post your email address and I will compile several attachments for you. I don't think you can attach photos to this thread. I tell you what idiot, just goggle Emmitt Till and choose images, then get back with me. By the way, I don't think justice has been served in the Till killing.

Someone should show 3:23 pictures of Ralph Weems after he was savagely beaten by a black mob. I don't believe justice has been served in that case either.

4:44... You don't want to get in pissin match with me on this. You will lose the argument. You see, there is no way to tell what the true numbers would be because there was a time not to long ago that killing a black man wouldn't even get documented. You are either to young or to dumb or you yourself are so full of racist rage you can't deal with facts. I'm a white man who grew up in the Delta, I wittnessed a black farm worker get his ass slapped around for breaking a plough share. Question: was there not two arrested made in the Ralph Weems case? The Till family has been waiting on justice since 1956!

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.
