Alleged Perv Arrested

Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following statement. 

A Copiah County man turned himself in Wednesday on a nine count indictment that alleged he raped children over whom he was in a position of trust, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Michael Holifield, 45, of Crystal Springs was indicted by a Copiah County grand jury on four counts of sexual battery, three counts of gratification of lust, and two counts of statutory rape. He has since posted bond. Holifield is accused of having both sexual intercourse and oral sex with the children on multiple occasions and at multiple locations between March 2013 and November 2014.
If convicted on all nine counts, Holifield faces up to 225 years in prison. 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 AG Investigators Larry Ware and Crystal Tillman-Palmer. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Patrick Beasley.

He will be very popular in Parchman. Should make many new friends there.

What this article doesn’t say is the ‘children’ were 16 and very willing. I know that’s still illegal, but it could definitely be worse.

Makes no difference if they were willing. Against the law. I hate it BC I am friends with him and never would of thought this of him. So sad for his family and the victims

the ‘children’ were 16 and very willing.

Maybe he should tell them that. Better men than this scumbag have claimed that "she was 15 going on 35 and she was very willing".

Dammit !


Even if she looks 30 and your pecker's as hard as a skillet handle, STOP!

Even if she's ready and willing, below 18 she is NOT able. STOP!

If you can't control it, get help, but STOP !

Ok so I have to agree with 5:36 PM on this one. These aren’t “children”, they are teenage hoes. This guy should get a high-five and immediate release. Don’t send him away for the rest of his life, we as a society are better than that.

I agree with you @ 6:48pm

If you are a 45 year OLD man - what in the hell are you doing with a child that is damn near 30 years younger than you in the first place. I can give a rats ass if she was a willing participant!?

You want young - go after a 20 year old that has her own place - you still dealing with someone younger than you.

What was his position of trust? Veterinarian? Age of consent in MS is 16, unless sex with person in a position of authority,then 18.

5:36 pm and 5:08 pm either are pervs themselves or intellectual Neanderthals.

If the latter is the case, maybe you can understand this... we don't let athletes go "pro" before age 18 because , like with prostitution, the career is short, and the risks of injury are high and you need to make a lot of money that you can manage without being at the mercy of those who would con you out of it.

These girls are either addicted to drugs or alcohol, have been neglected and/or abused at home, or are mentally challenged ( girls with low IQs are guileless, incapable of making independent decisions, and yet still are sexually no different and thus easy preys) or have been groomed by adult predators.

In any of those scenarios, they are being victimized by someone who is either a predator or sexually and intellectually stunted and insecure.

Even when mature adults who have a great deal in common marry with a wide age difference, the youngest is risking years as a caretaker and/or of being an early widow or widower. They are also risking being " traded in" when they get older if the elder is sexually stunted. The level of financial risks are reduced if the elder person is rich and remains benevolent. With dementia, though, the most benevolent can lose that.

9:26 - I agree with you about 5:36 and 5:08. Dr. Holifield is/was our vet, too, and I always found it odd that there were numerous teenage girls hanging out in the back room at the clinic apparently doing nothing along the lines of working. I assume the victims were among those girls since the indictment mentions sex abuse from a position of authority. The girls did not appear neglected, mentally retarded, or addicted. I could hear them laughing, joking around, and apparently having a great time hanging out like average teenage girls do, while I was in an exam room with my pets. Normal, average girls also are susceptible to the attention and grooming of an older authority figure.

News flash. Teenagers are having sex. With each other and other adults.
You will not be able to stop it.

before all you experts on sex hurt yourselves obsessing over this, understand that the age of sexual consent in mississippi is 16. up until 1998 it was 14. strap that one on before you start with your stupid comments.

Fourth Failed Attempt said...

Methinks Kingfish is among the Tom Head followers since he will not allow one to ask whether the 'victims' were male or female.

Anonymous said...

So this is the criminal case, wonder if civil cases for sexual harassment will follow.

If these girls were his employees, it would seem to be a slam dunk quid pro quo case.

I hate this for his wife. She seems like a stand up person.

It is sexual battery to engage in sexual activity with a child over the age of 14 but under the age of 18 if the defendant is in a position of authority over the child. People in positions of authority include teachers, coaches, doctors and other medical providers, and adult family members. (Miss. Code Ann. §§ 97-3-95, 97-3-97).

Methinks Fourth Failed Attempt should try harder. News coverage clearly says "girls."

Honey Badger said...

My vet too, hate this for his wife and 4 children.

Thanks, 7:11. I tried real hard to add more gas to the prurient interest intended by this blog thread. It's not a crime to fantasize unless you document it on the internet.

Kingfish said...

All I did was post a press release as did all the other TV stations and the CL. I don't see you making similar comments on their websites or Facebook pages.

That's probably because I don't subscribe to the Ledger and have not watched television news in several years. I hang out here for news. Does that surprise you?

Sorry, Quid, but nowhere close to a slam dunk unless he had 15 or more employees at his one man clinic, which is rather doubtful.

The girls were two of his nieces. It was his wife's side of the family, so they weren't blood relatives to him.

There is no doubt that there are 16 year olds out there who look and act like much older girls, so the "16 going on 25" defense might be reasonable if she picked up the guy in a bar, or really, even if he picked her up in one. However, the second a 25-plus year old man learns the object of his desire is 16, and I don't care if she dresses like a Kardashian, drinks like a legislator during the week, and strips in New Orleans on the weekends, he knows better. Not "should know better," _KNOWS BETTER_. If he then lets his little head do the thinking, hey, 16 will get you...well, apparently, a hell of a lot more than 20. If the reports are (mostly) true and this guy knew how old the girls were, I have sympathy for everyone else involved but I don't have any for him.

I am really surprised they stopped at investigating him. His brothers fall from the same tree. They've been doing devious perv crap since they were young. Don't think this just happened and it hasn't happened before.

A child is a child is a child. All of you on here advocating for this guy are wrong.(period) You are just as bad as he is.

I am sorry for the wife and kids, but this is a wake-up call. Kids, do not be like your father. It is not written in stone. Don't let him off the hook either. You don't have to hate him, but you don't have to put up with bad behavior. He would/will keep doing it if he is not convicted of it one way or another and gets right with his Creator, his wife, children and his victims.

Can he redeem himself, until his heart stops beating, surely. This poison has been in his heart a long time and there is only One who can wipe it clean.

You people are disgusting. These girls are not teenaged hoes, addicted to drugs or any of the other things you accuse them of! They were under the legal age of consent. They are good girls, with good grades, regular church attenders. This man drugged them with veterinary sedatives and had his way with him. They were unable to consent, and even if they were, they were not of age to do so legally! They were not his employees, but he very much had a position of trust in their lives. In coming forward about the years of abuse he inflicted on them, they have lost friends and loved ones. How brave of them to stand up for themselves and put this predator behind bars! How dare you victim blame! How dare you.

I'm a little late to the game here. I just googled to see if he had been to trial yet. All I know is, when I first moved to town and knew nobody, I took one if my pets to this clinic. When I first laid eyes on this man I had a very unusual and uncomfortable feeling about him. I've also heard since that his wife wasn't all that surprised, claiming she "knew who she married". It's all just too creepy.

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.
