Former Hinds deputy justice court clerk arrested

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:

Former Deputy Clerk of Hinds County Justice Court Arrested for Alleged Extortion

Jackson, Miss.-  A former Hinds County employee has been arrested for extortion, accused of accepting an unlawful payment while she worked as a deputy clerk for the Hinds County Justice Court, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.

Lakisa Renee Schuller, 38, of Clinton, was arrested last week by deputies of the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office following the indictment by a Hinds County Grand Jury for one count of Extortion by Collecting Unauthorized Fees.  Schuller was booked into the Hinds County Jail then released on a $5,000 bond.

Schuller is accused of collecting $800 from a citizen as a monetary fee to clear/remove a civil judgement from his record. The unauthorized fee that Schuller allegedly collected was in violation of Mississippi Code Section 97-11-33.

The maximum sentence for extortion by a public official is five years in prison or a fine of $5,000 on each count and the public official shall be removed from office.
As with all cases, a charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Investigators Christopher Watkins and Larry Ware of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division investigated the case.  Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander will prosecute the case.

Wonder if Hood sent six men to arrest her like they did the DA for his misdemeanor?

@2:47PM... How does the saying go? "It'd be a lot cooler if he did."

I'm sure you think Hood did all of that to your buddy RSS, but I'm sure if the FBI was involved, they had more to say in it than Hood did.

Clean house Jim Hood.

Hood going to run for Guv so expect lots and lots of these cases against public officials. It's going to get even hotter in Mississippi.

Once the FBI and AG get in the door, there is no telling what they can dig up.

3:41 REALLY!!! Clean House Jim HOOD!!! HOOD would need to start with himself. As 4:16 said Hood is just making noise for his own political gains.
There will be many little fish who are about to be caught.
It is shameful that it takes an election to get Hood off his butt. Even now though Hood will not hurt looking for contract bid kickbacks, hiring friends at very nice salaries in the education dept. and on and on and on.
Hood is the state's lawyer and I have never seen an instance were he actually legitimately put this state first. I believe from all evidence he uses whatever cases situations to further HIMSELF.
He should be ranked right up there with stokes, bennie, yarber etc. etc. etc. THUG IN A SUIT

Hood is just making noise for his own political gains.

So pissing off the black Democratic Party Purely PatronageJob vote in Hinds County is an advantage for Yeller Dog Democrat Jim Hood?

Other than Wee Willie Weathervane Winter can't remember a single MSPolitico more stuck between a rock and black Democrat hardplace than a Gubernatorial seeking Jim Hood in 2019.

Surprised? Uh, no. Only surprised that she got caught. Trashing Jim Hood because he took a crook out of her position & hopefully in jail? Now, that's stupid. I do believe it's only a matter of time before Kenuf Stokes comes to her defense. After all, this was a conspiracy of the white man to prosecute her. White men shouldn't be allowed in Hinds county.

Is there any connection between this person and the DA?

8:17 - I've been wondering the same thing myself.

Kingfish said...

Nope. D.A. has nothing to do with Justice Court.

Her last name is Schuller? (Could it be Schuler?)Justice Court and DA's office might not be connected, but is she kin to RSS?

10:04 - stop grasping at straws.

It was just a question that many would like to know. We all know of the hiring practices in Jackson. Being related is one of the best ways to be qualified for a job in Jackson.

Another crook is sitting in the CEO's office at MBMC. Go get him

In most cases someone has already put the puzzle together and the pieces fit. I'm sure they have a witness and a paper trail. Stop playing the race or political card.

This woman is a con-artist and used her position at the courthouse to imply she had some kind of real power. She was low on the totem pole but still able to do harm. She is a menace and thinks the rules do not apply to her. Good riddance!

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.
