AG busts Insurance Fraud

A DPS employee was arrested yesterday.  Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:

JACKSON—Today, Attorney General Jim Hood announced the arrest of a Hazlehurst woman charged with one count of insurance fraud.
Joyce Corley, 57, turned herself in to the Madison County Sheriff’s Department Wednesday following her indictment by a Madison County grand jury. Corley is accused of presenting an altered Explanation of Benefits to Southern Administrators and Benefit Consultants, Inc., of Ridgeland, in order to be reimbursed for medical expenses for which she had already received reimbursement. Her bond was set at $5,000.
If convicted, Corley faces up to three years in prison and a $5,000 fine. 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.
This case was investigated by Investigator Jerry Spell with the Attorney General’s Insurance Integrity Enforcement Bureau with assistance from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department. Special Assistant Attorney General Robert G. (“Bob”) Anderson will prosecute the case.

 Corley apparently works at the Mississippi Department of Public Safety:

Phew, I thought that was my new lady friend for a second but the names don't match up.

Interesting, she was responsible for millions of dollars of grant money at homeland security - makes one wonder how many documents she altered there, and if any of that money went missing. Looks like it's time for an audit!

10:10 Bro. Bennie Thompson of Bolton is the head of the Homeland Security Congressional Committee.... Let that sink in for a minute before you question her work there.

I knew Joyce years ago. She was such a sweet person - just went down the wrong path a long time ago. Sad for her family.

You would be incorrect. Bennie Thompson is not the head of Homeland Security Congressional Committee. A Republican is. And second, she is a state not a federal employee. A state with a Republican governor. Let that sink in for a minute. It will help you understand why she thought could take money that did not belong to her. She has clearly been around to many Republican staffers, contractors, and consultants.

Got news for you 5:37. The word 'congressional' has meaning. It means either a member of congress or an employee of that body. It does not mean a state employee. Please take your ass to the back of the class and roll up some more spit-balls.

Do you really, though, want to discuss money, favors and privilege back when Thompson was head of the Homeland Security Delegation some years back?

@6:29 It's bad to be ignorant. It's worse to be ignorant and think you are correct. Please do your research. "Corley apparently works at the Mississippi Department of Public Safety"-This is a Mississippi Agency, not a federal agency.

Again, Bennie Thompson may have be head "a few years back", but he aint head now. A Republican from Texas is, I believe.

P.S. Before you comment, let Google be your friend.

6:29 pm The majority party " heads" all the committees in both the House and the Senate.
The majority party in both the House and the Senate is now Republican.
The Democrats can't " obstruct" anything the Republicans want to do unless enough Republicans choose to vote with the Democrats.
You are not alone obviously in not understanding how Congress works if the posts I read blaming the media and Democrats ( including those no longer in office) for obstructing Republicans in this administration from getting " things done".
Look up which both has controlled the House and the Senate in past years and then decide which party has been "obstructionist" in which years.

7:05; Hate to see you wake up to this disappointment, but, Thompson is indeed the ranking member on the Homeland Security Commission, although he enjoys no power or privilege other than being tethered to the mainstream press. When the Dems were in power, he was even 'more rank', as he was then Chair. Thompson was never 'head' of any Mississippi Department of Public Safety committee, delegation or anything else. It appears you got your wires crossed. You posted at both 7:05 and 10:35, appearing to contradict yourself. Google is indeed a friend to all. But a good memory is also beneficial.

Who gives a shit about who is the chair or ranking member of any congressional committee - I want to know if Corley doctored any documents and steered money from federal grants to her own use.

I'd be willing to bet this isn't her first rodeo, and considering how DPS handles grant money, they probably have no idea...

7:04; I am 6:29. What do you see in my post that leads you to believe I don't know how government works? I said nothing about 'obstruction' or 'majority party'.

Do you post EVERY arrest that Jim Hood's office makes, or do you just single out people who work for DPS or other agencies you don't care for? Shameful.

Just when the Extreme-Irony-Buzzer goes off, 11:12. Can't you see it?

I post his press releases all the time when it involves a local case. But I suspect you already know that.

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.
