Weisenberger pleads guilty

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:

Former Madison County Judge Sentenced for Simple Assault

Jackson, Miss.- A former Madison County Judge was sentenced today for simple assault, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Former Madison County Justice Court Judge Bill Weisenberger, 58, of Madison, appeared before Senior Status Judge L. Breland Hilburn in Madison County Circuit Court, pleading guilty to misdemeanor simple assault. Weisenberger was accused of striking an individual in the head in an incident at the Canton Flea Market in 2014.

Judge Hilburn sentenced Weisenberger to serve six months in the custody of the Madison County Jail with six months suspended, followed by three months of supervised probation and three months of unsupervised probation.  Additionally, Weisenberger was ordered to pay a $500 fine, $500 to the Crime Victims Fund and serve 100 hours of community service at Our Daily Bread in Canton. He agreed to never seek public office or work in law enforcement again.

"Today's sentence represents the final chapter in a very unfortunate and unusual case," Attorney General Hood said.  "I want to thank Judge Hilburn's sentence and his order to the defendant to serve community service hours.  We also sincerely appreciated working with the victim and his family in their pursuit of justice."

Weisenberger was arrested in February 2015 following an indictment by a Madison County Grand Jury.  In April 2015, he was suspended from his position by the Mississippi Supreme Court. He later lost a re-election bid.

The case was investigated by Perry Tate and prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander of the Attorney General's Public Integrity Division, following recusal by the Madison County District Attorney's Office.

"We also sincerely appreciated working with the victim and his family in their pursuit of justice."

Justice prevailed in this one. Never thought I say this but, good job Stan Alexander. Weisenberger was the Wicked Weil of the North...

not even a slap on the wrist, more like a pat on the wrist.

At least a lesson in humility perhaps.

It was passed time for him to no longer be involved in public service. He had been loose cannon for too long and had the I can do no wrong, cant touch me mentality.

8:27 said it best. Hopefully a lesson in humility.

Is he actually going to serve 6 months in jail or is that what has been suspended?

9:18 I too am confused. Is the 6 months the same six months that was suspended?

Look back at the date of his indictment and tell us how many payroll checks he continued to draw over the past months.

Since the press account mentions six suspended, if he were sentenced to serve six but they were not suspended, wouldn't the sentence read, "Twelve months with six suspended" instead of "six months to serve with six suspended"?

He was paid full salary for over a year without sitting on the bench and hearing a single case.

I bet a good whoppin hunk that money he inherited from the sale of the family place in Glukstadt is in Carson's pocket. You know it has cost him a pretty penny to get off this light.

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. 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. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
