Ben Allen files motion to dismiss

Ben Allen filed a motion to dismiss his indictment today in Hinds County Circuit Court.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted him in March for alleged embezzlement and misuse of Downtown Jackson Partners' funds.  Mr. Allen is the Executive Director of Downtown Jackson Partners. The indictment also charged Mr. Allen with making improper campaign donations to Mayor Tony Yarber's inaugural gala.  The grand jury also indicted two State Auditor investigators for allegedly obstructing justice and spiking an investigation of Mr. Allen. The case is assigned to Judge Winston Kidd.

Not sure how Ben sees the D.A. being jailed as a signal that Allen's case should be dropped. Do we want to advocate that every pending case the D.A. has be dropped, or just Ben's?

Not sure RSS will be around to answer the Motion. He may be "tied up" in shiny new cuff links.

4:11. Read the motion...dumbass. Straight forward. RSS tried to screw him.

So DJP was defrauding their insurance company by placing a commercial auto on a personal policy but still using it for business use?

So you imagine the background work and this motion were started and completed in the last 24 hours? Been watching too much Law and Order.

Keep digging... I'm sure you'll get a big scoop someday.

This is a factual based motion with accompanying exhibits to support it. That's called "working", something this DA does very little of...

Hmmm, who is fond of using 'dumbass'?

I found that if you click on "share" you can email the Scrbd document to yourself so that you can read it as a larger document. It is worth the read.
I am livid at RSS after reading this. There was no embezzlement by Benn Allen of public funds or goods for his personal benefit. All of the expenses were authorized by JDP, a private corporation, for business purposes and accounted for to an accounting group which audited the agency annually. His Board authorized it all and knew about it all.
So WTF RSS? Why did you do this to Mr. Allen? I hope the AG puts you dumb young ass under the jail. obviously you should never have been given the kind of powers that one has leading a grand jury, which as they say can "indict a ham sandwich" if the DA tells them to, or any innocent person you choose like Mr. Allen. I hope your law degree also is yanked ASAP.

5:26. Just read it. Thank you for your comments. You saved me a lot of time and effort. AGREE.

74. 4:11 and 4:37 same "person". There will be plenty PLENTY of opportunity to explain your theory in detail I would bet.

QUEEN BEE said...

WHO says that RSS will be jailed? Based on what exactly? And, if so, get ready to jail most of the DA's in the state, then.

@6:09. Under OATH I would think?? With evidence?? This will be fun.

Dang. I have just read the entire motion. It makes me sick. The abuse of power is overwhelming. I don't know Mr. Allen, but seems to me that Shuler Smith had a case of vendetta, not even "overreach". Much more than that.

I hope that he has some recourse to go after his ridiculous DA. He should be disbarred. Ridiculous.

Ben Allen got phucked.

Who is the "disgruntled employee"? Keep reading about it. Who is person? Name? Occupation? History?

The one who caught Ben with his hand in the cookie jar ... dumbass.

Has RSS been involved in other shit storm cases like this? What is his past history. Read it and it is pathetic!

8:47. Suspense here. What is her name and her history?

@4:37 - "Personal" insurance policies are for "personally owned" cars. Commercial Insurance policies are for cars owned by a corp, LLC, etc. If tgat truck is titled to him, it is properly insured under his "personal" insurance policy. There is a "business use" classification specifically designed for personally owned vehicles used for business purposes. There is nothing at all improper about this.

Who is Ben Allen?

Anonymous said...

@9:57, 4:37 here. As an agent I am well aware of that loophole. Until an accident occurs doing business for DJP and a lawsuit arises. The "for business use" is a grey area on a personal auto policy, and one I really don't like to rely on to save a few hundred dollars annually, especially for a group with the names behind DJP. Also, I would like to think Ben Allen isn't the type to be using an 88 Chevy pickup on a personal level with some mixed business use thrown in, as the business use endorsement is intended(salesmen, insurance and real estate agents, and the like). If I were a betting man, and one that likes to keep a lower E&O premium, I would venture to say that truck is used 100% solely for the use of DJP and they were skirting the lines to pay a little less....but what do I know. If I were of the status of some of the board members I would look at the coverage differences between the two, and certainly they aren't saving a whole heap on an '88 Chevy.

Read it.BOGUS BOGUS BOGUS. Ben is soooo not guilty. As far as the woman is concerned fry her. I would not want to be her attorney.

Anonymous said...

This may be an accurate presentation of the facts, but what it is now is the defendant's version of what took place and interpretation of the law. It's a motion to dismiss by the defendant's counsel and will have weight only when a judge agrees.

Anonymous said...

Suprise. Dennis Sweet was the woman's off-the-record lawyer. Dennis Sweet and RSS are BFFs. connect the dots. it's not that difficult.

I am 4:11 and I'm not the same as any other poster on this thread. I merely asked a question as to whether Ben Allen's attorney thinks he can 'seize the moment' to have his client's case thrown out simply because a ham sandwich with eyebrows has been indicted. Not sure that equates to being a dumbass.

Whether the case against Allen is weak, based on fabrication and vendetta, whether he got phucked or phucked others and is guilty as sin should be handled by the system of justice, not by a bunch of wannabee courtroom yawners posting on a local blog.

Don't worry Bogus Bogus Bogus. That woman is far too smart to allow a puke like you to represent her.

You soooo told everybody here off. Way to go. You are righteous.

BTW, JJ is read statewide and by numerous readers nationally.

Great motion. It is mind blowing RSS pursued this case. He needs to be out of office. Now.

★★★ [AND] now we begin to see the developing Smith narrative on different comments today throughout JJ that his legal problem is the result of white NEJackson Republicans co-opting Hood and the FBI to get Ben Allen's indictment dismissed. ★★★

@8:01. Nail meet head. Can you spell joke?

The woman scorned is self-styled "Jackson's Oldest Teenager" and there was no romantic interest on Ben's part, of that we are all certain. So glad this may be over for Ben Allen.

Suspense 8:47 That woman was No Billed by a Hinds County Grand Jury in September of 2015 because the evidence manifested by the DJP thugs was lacking credibility. That fact lost in the storm of attempting to focus attention away from Ben Allen. DJP vultures then go to Madison County to file a civil suit. Will they continue to county shop until they find a judge/jury (someone?) who will be more receptive to their ploy? BTW that attorney IS being paid by DJP. Going to get that tattle tale for "tarnishing Ben's good name"

Kingfish said...

Funny you should say that. After your last comment alleging such, I went and looked. Ms. Brune's name didn't appear anywhere on the public no bill lists that are in the circuit clerks oFfice.

However, her name DOES appear on the computer screens for the clerk but that is because it's tied in
To the DA's system. So why isn't that info made public and how do you know about it?

Anonymous said...

Because I have a copy of the No Bill, signed and delivered.

Kingfish said...

So send me a copy at kingfish1935@gmail.com. You were raising cane that I didn't mention she was no billed. The D.A. for whatever reason did not place her on the public lists. Take it up with him.

Calm down, Linda.

Nothing new about the DA's friends and friends of friends and attorneys being "no billed"

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. 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.
