DA posts Ben Allen's SSN online

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith filed a motion in State v. Benjamin Allen.  The motion doesn't really ask the court to take any action but instead makes allegations about how much money was embezzled and requests that the court take the motion into consideration when determining Mr. Allen's sentence.  The motion is posted below. 

The District Attorney also posted Mr. Allen's SSN and other personal information in the motion that appeared in the Mississippi Electronic Courts (MEC) system today in violation of the rules.  This website notified Judge Kidd's Court Administrator and the Circuit Clerk of the posting of the personal information.  This is the second time that Mr. Allen's SSN has been posted online.  Former Downtown Jackson Partners Secretary Linda Brune posted it online as well (along with her own) in an exhibit she submitted to the Madison County Court in Downtown Jackson Partners v. Linda Brune

The motion includes allegations in the other nine counts of the ten count indictment for embezzlement.  However, the jury found Mr. Allen innocent of those charges last week.  Don't be surprised if the defense submits a motion to strike.

Was the Mayor of Terry a Federal or a State court and what does that have to do with Ben?

The Mayor of Terry, MS was a duly elected public official. The Mayor was indicted on several counts of embezzlement of tax payer dollars and choose to plead guilty to,at least one count. Please enlighten me as to what aspect of the law, this Motion at issue has to do with the State v. Beni Allen.
This is a question to which anyone who has an idea is free to answer. Thanks

Ben Allen's lawyers should research the average embezzlement sentence in Hinds County and request a sentence commensurate with others, pre trial intervention. I bet Michael Brown's victim is wondering if Hinds will get to his case before Brown is finished serving his Rankin sentence.

@3:36 - The only Hinds county conviction showing on his MDOC prisoner sheet is five years for forgery. If he has to serve all of his time for the Rankin county convictions, and if he lives that long, he'll be about 80 when he's done with that. My hope is that he rots in prison and he never sets foot into the outside world again.

3:35 here... correction State v. Ben Allen; sorry for the typo. The question remains, however.

Damn, I must need to go back to Law & Order, S1/Eps 3 and check my legal education. Our esteemed District Attorney states, without question, that the state PROVED all these items of embezzlement. I thought that once the jury found that there was no embezzlement, that would mean that the state DID NOT prove those facts.

Is it me, or does RSS need to go back to law school? He is asking to judge to consider all that he claimed in his simplistic mind of this grand scheme, but the jury --- supposedly of B Allen's peers ---- didn't find those wet dreams to be proven.

Somebody help me out here.

It's difficult to fill out legal documents when you're stoned. Let's just go ahead and get that out of the way so all the drama will die down.

I don't know who typed this document, but it's obvious they don't know how to spell or use spell check. And this is supposed to be a legal document? JPS at it's best or should I said RSS office workers at their best

I agree with 8:28. It must indeed be a rough road to be the standard bearer for the redaction of social security numbers. That was a mighty brave call and one from which most of us mortals would shrink.

8:28 Thank you for that comment, Ben!

I am definitely no fan of RSS or of Ben Allen but I do know that I personally campaigned for Ben when he first ran for Jackson city council. I quickly learned he could not be trusted as far as his word on votes to be taken, there were a couple of occasions where he promised to vote one way outside the council chambers & then less than 30 minutes later he would vote the opposite. I also know the assessment that is levied on the downtown partners is not voluntary and is collected as a tax levy (special assessment) by the Tax Collector. I don't know if Ben is guilty of all charges but is definitely guilty of poor judgement and misrepresentation.

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.
