Sheriff sued

It appears law enforcement in Jackson will be dragged through the mud yet again.  The former Hinds County Chief Deputy sued Sheriff Victor Mason for sex discrimination, race discrimination, and sexual harassment yesterday in U.S. District Court.  The complaint contains quite a few lurid allegations as former Chief Deputy Cheryl Matory accused Sheriff Mason of channeling his inner Bill Clinton by trying to use her to arrange sexual encounters with another employee.  The complaint is posted below.  Ms. Matory is represented by attorney Lisa Ross.

The complaint makes quite a few lurid allegations.   Ms. Matory was a corporal at JPD before she became Chief Deputy.  However, she served in that position for a short period of time before she was demoted.  The case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. The alleged facts of the case begin on the second page.

Attorney Claire Barker represents the Sheriff. She said "We have reviewed the Complaint and deny all allegations. We cannot offer any further comment due to the fact that this is now in litigation. The Sheriff and the Hinds County Sheriff's Office remains committed to the continued efforts to serve and protect the citizens of Hinds County."

Damn good case against Mason and I've seen more than a few at the workplace complaint level as well as the EEOC level. Based on what I just read, I see no way for Mason to escape justice.

Is there no end to this type of thing in Jackson and Hinds? Bracy Coleman, several years back, was the tip of the iceberg. Yarber was his own iceberg. And now, Mason emerges as a floater.

"I meant everybody loves Richard" is going to be a very poor defense.

Worked with Mason for years. He is a complete idiot. Can't extract urine from a boot when he wets himself.

Mason is a fraud, one and done. He is a complete idiot, pull his service record it's all fluff. He has never done anything in his 30 + plus years.

Sheriff Mason to wife, " honey I'll be home for dinner"!
It amazes me that the sheriff hires an unqualified undersheriff and demote/fire her months later. Sheriff Mason must have been thinking with the other head. SAD! Give them HELL Attorney Lisa Ross!

Well this administration didn't make it a year. It's a sad day for Hinds County. Mason should be ashamed and then have his head examined for putting Pete Luke at the helm. This ship is sinking boys!!!

Kingfish said...

He's much better qualified than Matory. In case you haven't noticed, she is not back at JPD.

Pete's been around the HCSO off and on for over 20 years he is dedicated and knows what he's doing!

As much as I hate that Sheriff Mac is gone, good thing he's not here to see all of this, after he put all of his trust and endorsement towards Mason.

1. Pete Luke is not qualified for that position. He was not grandfathered in as he stated. He is an Accountant.

Did Sheriff Mason send these text?

Seriously, we are treating a complaint filed by Lisa Ross as a strong complaint??

After reading this shining example of Jackson's finest I am not demoralized one stinking bit because tomorrow morning I will roll out of my bed and do my "happy dance" thanking GOD that I moved north and left that shit storm behind. Over and Out....

This has nothing to do with Lisa Ross. She is doing her job as an attorney. It has to do with Sheriff Mason.

And I say again, Did he send the messages and if so what was the meaning of those messages?

Paragraph 19, she "worked" to her car?

Having worked with Cheryl Matory I can honestly say she is one of the most unprofessional, discourteous, rude, and untruthful people I have ever worked with. She was the type of person that was so ignorant she thought holding a cell phone away from her head muted it. You would be on the phone with her after she called to ask you for something and she would hold the phone away from herself while muttering things like "Yeah.. you're a stupid M.....F..." She of course never realized that everyone could hear her when she did this but wondered why no one wanted to help her or deal with her anymore.

I don't doubt that she was fired for not doing her job since she was too busy being a personal trainer at gyms in Jackson during business hours. We all know the JPD motto though, "If you get fired for being a leech be sure to file a law suit!"

Innocent till proven guilty. He has done a great job. So far.

This is the tip of the iceberg for Ole Victor. We who've known him, always knew he was a fraud. We voted out Tyrone and we're going to do the Same to you Victor..

Pete Luke was voted in on a closed special Legislative session to receive his certification between 2008-2010.

R.W Spooner will be your next MacMillan people.

Victor's doing the exact same thing Tyrone did, surrounding himself with ignorance and incompetent people for political favors during his campaign run. This too will be his downfall.

Spooner's your new Mac people.
Don't jump ship later folks, we already know who you are.

10:59, while that won't take long. This is an easy one.

How much will this cost the tax paying citizens of Hinds County ? Will this be mentioned in Victors weekly account to his followers on social media? Who let Pete Luke back in Hinds County? Wasn't he a die hard Tyrone man? He certainly stabbed Mac in the back a time or two. He is a great paper pusher though.

Victor's Twisted Dickery said...

"What do these texts mean?"

Is there anybody out there who actually asks that question?

It means he wants some pussy and wants his girl to set him up. She wouldn't so he demoted both of them. A hard dick denied has a decidedly vindictive twist to the left.

How stupid must you be to axe that question!

Anonymous said...

Victors pre-election circle tried to warn him! When he got elected, he was like a gambler with the county's budget running around a casino!
He can redeem himself! Take a deep breath, put on you big boy pants, sit down with your loyal supporters and re-group. The people of Hinds County will forget all this shigity by the 4th of July. We love you Victor!!

Victors problems are only gonna get worse. Arrogance, and his ego will be his downfall. Same as Tyrone..They just can't help it, or get it..

One and done!

Anonymous said...

That's a false claim by a disgruntled employee who was demoted after given an opportunity to make history in a good way. When that opportunity was unable to be taken because of incompetence, she was demoted. Which provided her another opportunity to recover and work herself back into a position of authority. Instead, she threw in the towel and made outrageous allegations. Victor Mason will come out of this with his reputation in tact. He will continue to be a good sheriff for years to come.

Anonymous said...

Victor Mason is fraudulent as a law enforcement Officer. The real Mason has NEVER done anything, he perpetuates being a well oiled lawman. He is oblivious to the law never worked and real cases. He has had handouts his whole career. His arrogance is pitiful and his law enforcement acumen is atrocious. One term Sheriff, after 30 plus years of doing nothing it's time to take your old ass home.

Anonymous said...

5:57, very well put. He was hidden on Task Forces for his whole S.O career by McMillan. The kept text messages will be her proof that he did it ( That Simple )
He's been catered too and given his whole career by everybody.

Just wait till after the Mayors election, things will reveal themselves then.

Anonymous said...

Victor has managed to accomplish in six months, what took Tyrone three years to accomplish. Piss off EVERYBODY that voted for him and helped him get elected. Mark this Post, he'll lose by a Landslide in August..
Nobody who endorsed him will do it again..
Bye bye Victor.
It was all about your high 4 anyway.

August? 2019?

Mason has done a great job. Lots of Tyrone supporters on here. Either he sent the texts or not, time will tell. But he has been a better sheriff than his predecessor. No doubt.

Nothing To See Here.. said...

"...will come out of this with his reputation in tact." Really?

"He will continue to be a good sheriff for years to come." Really?

Thanks Auntee.

You people could care less about the sexual indiscretions of elected officials. It's simply expected, part of the play-book, ho-hum, ordinary behavior.

Anonymous said...

Paraphrasing page 5 of the complaint:

“ What if the Hinds County Sheriff’s office smelled like ass ” .

If true, all I can say is Boy Howdy.

Anonymous said...

More of the same..Hinds County believes it's ok for its leaders to have sexual indiscretions as a prerequisite..

I.e. Robert Shuler Smith & Tony Yarber..
We'll vote all of you out and put INTEGRITY back in office.

Spooner for Sheriff.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
