Another Hinds County prosecutor is indicted

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Hinds County Assistant District Attorney Jamie McBride for two counts of conspiring to hinder prosecution of criminal defendants.  The indictment alleges he acted as a partner in crime with Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith and former Assistant District Attorney Ivon Johnson.  The indictment states:


that, ROBERT SHULER SMITH and JAMIE K. McBRIDE, in the First Judicial District of Hinds County, Mississippi on or about and between the dates of December 1, 2015, and June 22, 2016,  did then and there knowingly, unlawfully and feloniously, without authority of law, conspire with  Ivon Johnson and with others known and unknown to the Grand Jury to commit the crime of Hindering Prosecution in the First Degree in violation of § 97-9-105 of the Mississippi Code, 1972, as amended, by conspiring to hinder the prosecution, conviction and punishment of Christopher Butler in Hinds County Cause Numbers 12-452 and 12-831....
The case is assigned to special Judge Larry Roberts.

Damn. Hate this for Jamie McBride. Wish him the best.

Has he been arrested and charged? If so, when will the charges be dropped?

Jamie is one of the good guys. This AG's office may have gone overboard on this one.

White AG and white ADA...say it ain't so.

6:39 Agree. Jamie is one of the good guys. Never had a problem. The AG's likely gone overboard here.

No way McBride is involved in wrongdoing. Something is not right about this,

Wow, ruin a guy's career because he tells you he has no personal knowledge of wrongdoing and just indicts and prosecuted the child molesters and rapists?

Jamie was in charge of prosecuting molesters and rapist. I wonder how much money he made dropping charges for guilty people. Shame.

I can not imagine Jamie being involved in this. He is one of the good guys for sure.

You mean one of the semi-good guys, or one of the formerly good guys. Mississippi is littered with white supposedly "good guys".

Don't think some people understand what the AG and the FBI have on these people. They confiscated cell phones from prisoners at the jail with incriminating evidence on them. They got text, emails, cooperating witnesses looking to cut deals. They got witnesses who will say the AD is a dope user. This stuff is long and deep.

Jamie McBride has never taken a dime and has spent his career putting societies worst in jail.

Well put 8:25. Well put. His ass is toast. Those of us privy to the insider "gossip" know that if ten percent of the talk is true, he better pack some Vaseline.

Anonymous said...

Right 8:25 that's why they were indicted Federally. No, wait, they weren't. For all the "Feds" involvement there sure seems to be little to no press releases from them. And that's not exactly their MO. They arrest anyone, its a full blown press release.

There is one competent attorney in all this, that isn't charged or under investigation. And he's working for Smith. Jamie McBride, for those of us who have had cases against him, have found him to be honest, forthright, and hard working. The AG made a big mistake here. Jamie's crime was doing an affidavit that bucked the AG's story. I'll be very interested if anyone is standing in either entity, once this is over.

Jamie did a yeoman's work prosecuting some of the biggest pieces of **** in Hinds County. If he's been sucked up in Eyebrows' misdeeds, it's a sad day for all.

So the AG is 100% right in everything he tries to charge/convict RSS of but RSS's right hand man for years is squeaky clean?? What's up with all these folks jumping on the "innocent until proven guilty" bandwagon tonight?? I've never see that before on this site.

Anonymous said...

@9:36
Right, and we haven't seen an affavit from Shaun or Pat swearing that McBride's affidavit was false.

Anonymous said...

@9:00 apparently because these people have a working knowledge of the local criminal justice system and know that there is no way McBride is involved in wrongdoing.

Anonymous said...

If he is innocent/upstanding and RSS is guilty why didn't he bail when all the others did, refuse to do an affidavit and tell investigators what, if anything, he knew? If nothing else this is a "lay down with dogs, wake up with fleas", "that's what you get" situation. BUT since Ivon was wearing a wire for last 9 months or so it's going to be much worse than we all anticipate. Damn Snitches..

kim wade said...

Present indictment aside, it still looks like the original arrest of RSS in June was made to stop the grand jury proceedings set for that day by RSS.
Thus, the AG's office would be guilty of interfering w the grand jury process and prosecution also.
They either rushed to the arrest to stop grand jury from meeting or they are incredibly incompetent given it was such a high profile arrest.
There's more to all this......gotta be!

Ben Framed said...

Are there any of Jamie's relatives and close friends who have not yet posted on his behalf?

Case files are full of guilty pleas from people who would never violate the law.

Anonymous said...

Now this adds an enexpected unwanted wrinkle.

Jamie is as stated generally perceived as beyond reproach having worked in Madison, Hinds, and Rankin counties prosecuting our least savory child molesters and such.

He filed an affidavit....and gets indicted?

With the addition of Jamie this case takes a whole new posture IMO

Anonymous said...

12:25. That's just it. Jamie would not knowingly violate the law. Something is bad wrong here.

Anonymous said...

Open your eyes and set your racist hearts aside...said:

@ Kim Wade, NOW YOURE ON TO SOMETHING!!! Finally someone sees this for what it REALLY is...it has been obvious from the very beginning! If Ivon was their informant, he told them what was about to go down at Grand Jury! Based on McBrides affidavit, two of their assistants were scared and anxious about being indicted in the days leading up to RSS's arrest! Then, you have RSS being arrested just moments before he's prepared to make Grand Jury presentments!!! Anyone with any piece of a brain can see what this is!
It has been crystal clear from the very beginning that Smith's arrest was an attempt to keep the Grand Jury from hearing whatever he was prepared to present that day!
After the Ben Allen indictment, I'm willing to bet there were a lot of anxious "individuals" all over Hinds County wondering who would be next. There is a ton of corruption in Hinds County, and my hope is that DA Smith continues in his pursuit to bring down any and every corrupt individual...whomever they may be!

This is bullshit.

Oh, man, not Jamie. He's one of the good guys. This is awful.

Anonymous said...

Jamie is an honest, hardworking attorney whom I have known for years. The likelihood of his knowingly doing something wrong is slim to none, and I predict he will be cleared of all charges.

What the heck is really doing on here? Did dirty cops plant dope on Christopher Butler, and did RSS piss off the cops by planning to present dirty cop evidence to a grand jury? Is Hood covering for dirty cops?

Anonymous said...

Jamie McBride avoiding prosecuting cases and spends most of his time at Buffalo Wild Wings ! There are cases upon cases he let child molesters walked. He also were agreeing to bonds that the county prosecutor was supposed to handle and got called out for it

By noon today, some of you "defenders" will be sorely disappointed. Hide and watch.

? What does Inmate/Convict Christopher Butler have on the Hinds County DA for him to put his career on the line and most of his Assistant DA's on the line for a god damn, lying, freeking piece of shit, INMATE!

If RSS will put his job on the line for a Convict , what other under the table illegal bullshit has he done? What ever Convict Butler is doing for the DA, it must be MIND BLOWING REAL GOOD!

This is troubling on so many levels. Whether the allegations of bought justice are true or false, our justice system fails when prosecutors' integrity is questioned. While prosecutorial abuse is not a new phenomenon, prosecutorial criminality is a damn sight worse. Just disgusting.

Jamie is a "good guy". Good guys can make major judgement errors that are criminal in nature.
The question one of intent if that is the case.
It is obvious at this point that many of those posting just don't know, including me.
I would hope that the AG would have much more evidence than it appears prior to presentation of the case to a Grand Jury.
I have faith in Jamie and our justice system as well.
A lie is by nature intentional, a mistake is just that, a mistake.
I hope that this case hinges on more than the difference twixed the two.

With all respect to Judge Roberts, how is it that Senior Status Judge Larry Roberts (State v. McBride, case # 2016-cr-837-LER) is appointed on a Hinds County case that was just filed yesterday, September 7th? There have been no recusals by the local judges, but a Senior Status Judge from Meridian is assigned a brand new case as soon as it is filed in Hinds County. There is no Supreme Court Order appointing Judge Roberts to this case. How does that happen? The capias does not name a judge in the body of the capias (the space for the judge's name is blank), so it looks like Mr. McBride's Capias may not be worth the paper it is written on.

Anonymous said...

Thanks 9:43. Everybody official is stupid except you stupid anonymous our bloggers (like me).

Anonymous said...

I didn't see the capias included on the blog. Did I miss it or did you see a copy of that elsewhere @ 9:43?
It appears that the clerk assumed, perhaps wrongfully, that the previous Supreme Court Order appointing Roberts continues to be effective.

Anonymous said...

As for the previous refusals:
The parties are essentially the same, the facts haven't changed and the issues are still the issues all envolving the DA and his staff and the same criminal defendants such as Butler. Furthermore, and most important is that once a judge has recused him/herself, that judge is prohibited from "unrecusing" him/herself.

Anonymous said...

11:21 I think that you meant "previous refusals".
Otherwise I pretty much agree, especially the part about no unrecusing once a judge has recused.

Good point about Peters and DeLaughter. Everybody also thought Trent Lott and Dickie Scruggs were above reproach. And Jimmy Swaggart. And Tammy Faye Bakker. Wait....what was the man's name who used to be president of Mississippi College and wound up with a bunch of hookers and a slush fund? Noble? How ironic.

All admirable people. The list is a long one. Meanwhile, there are several black SUVs roaming around Canton.

It has been said prosecuting attorneys now have so much influence on grand juries that "by and large" they could get them to "indict a ham sandwich." I bet they only presented their side to the jurors. This indictment means nothing but a one-sided slanted view by an already biased group of prosecutors.

someoneinnorthms said...

So, 5:08 . . . an indictment? That's what you described.

Anonymous said...

People are sentenced to years in prison on a daily basis. Each of these prison terms, 5:08 PM, is based on that "one-sided slanted" document referred to as an indictment.

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.
