Bramlett to Replace Guest

Governor Phil Bryant issued the following statement.


Gov. Phil Bryant announced today he has appointed John K. (Bubba) Bramlett, Jr. as District Attorney of the 20th Circuit Court District. He replaces Congressman-elect Michael Guest who was elected to represent Mississippi’s Third Congressional District.

Guest’s retirement will be effective Dec. 31, 2018, and Bramlett’s appointment will be effective Jan. 1, 2019. He will serve the remainder of the term.

The 20th Circuit Court District encompasses Madison and Rankin counties.

“Bubba has faithfully served the people of the 20th Circuit Court District in two different roles over the years, and I am pleased he has accepted this appointment,” Gov. Bryant said. “His experience as both a prosecutor and in private practice make him well-qualified. I know he will continue his outstanding work as the Madison and Rankin counties District Attorney.”

Bramlett has served as an Assistant District Attorney in the 20th Circuit Court District since 2015, where his caseload includes drug possession, drug trafficking, kidnapping, aggravated assault, DUI death, and murder cases in Madison County. He oversees and actively prosecutes felony cases from inception through verdict.

“I am honored and humbled by this appointment to serve as District Attorney for the wonderful people of Madison and Rankin counties,” said Bramlett. “I am deeply grateful to Governor Bryant for the high level of confidence and trust he has placed in me to lead this outstanding office in its tireless work for justice. We look forward to working diligently with our exceptional law enforcement to ensure our people are protected, victims are served, and our communities remain among the safest in the world to live, work, worship, and raise our families.”

Prior to joining the 20th Circuit Court District Bramlett was in private practice at the Bramlett Law Office from 2004-2015 in Brandon, Miss. His practice had an emphasis on civil and criminal litigation primarily in Madison and Rankin counties.

Additionally, he served the 20th Circuit Court District as a special prosecutor and assistant district attorney for crimes against children from 2000-2004. His caseload consisted of felonious child abuse, aggravated assault, rape, kidnapping, sexual battery, gratification of lust and murder cases that involved child victims in Rankin County. From 1992-2000 he was the County Attorney for Rankin County.

Bramlett holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of Mississippi and a Juris Doctorate from the Mississippi College School of Law.

Another Mary Hawkins Butler “worshipper”. She says jump and Bubba JUMPS. Here we go again.

Well, he has to win re-election too.

4:51, It is obvious that you don’t know Bubba Bramlet or you would not make such an asinine statement. I have known Bubba since he was Rankin County prosecutor in the 1990s. He is straight up and doesn’t worship anyone except the Lord. He doesn’t jump for Mary or anyone else.

Bubba sounds perfect for that job.

Savvy call by the Guv. Bubba is a Brandon native, so he will be strong in both counties of the district.

You people disgust me!!! Most of the people who post here are not happy people. If you really know, or even care about others, you wouldn't be so negative.

Anonymous said...

4:51 is so off base, it’s laughable. Just throw a post up and see if it sticks. Hint: that one didn’t.

When will people quit calling their children or themselves “Bubba”? It’s never been a real name and never will.

As long as Mary Hawkins is mayor the DA office will be controlled by her.

I may like him, don’t know anything about him. But, do I have to call him Buuba???

@4:51

Please enlighten the rest of us as to some of the things about which Mayor Mary has told Mr. Bramlett to "jump." I would truly love to hear about them. I'll be waiting on the edge of my chair.

There is a Bubba on "In the Heat of the Night" really I saw it on tv at lunch time today.

8:41, What makes you think that Mary Hawkins.controls or even is interested in the DA’s office operations? The DA prosecutes felony cases which have little or nothing to do with Mary or the city of Madison

Sometimes it is better to remain silent and have the world think you a fool than to open your mouth and confirm the fact!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I too am unclear how Mayor Mary controls Rankin County.

Another of Bryant's Inane Appointments said...

I have not heard from a soul in Madison who has ever heard of this guy and have asked many who the hell he is. I'm not interested in who does or doesn't control him but it would be nice if anybody in these parts had ever heard of him.

Another of Feel Brant's inane appointments, as we are still smarting from the wounds he inflicted when he blessed us with Annie-Oakley-Hyde-Smith.

As someone said above, this guy will have to eventually RUN for this office (although the governor did not mention that in his little appointment speech).

And can we please stop with the family's posts?

What? A white, male, republican appointed by Philbilly? Clutch my pearls! Don’t know the guy. But, any friend of Philbilly isn’t a friend of mine. It’s time for him to retire to the barn. He’s embarrassed our state enough.

I had another Rankin/Madison ADA tell me that he was for sure going to get the job. He went around trying to tell people he could get them jobs at the DA's office, etc. Looks like that particular ADA was wrong... how embarrassing for him! look forward to working with you, BUBBA!

to 4:51pm, mary hawkins could maybe control a bad hair day. she does not control the district atty.

Anonymous said...

Mary has nothing to do with the DA, both Guest and Bramlett are Brandon boys. If anyone "controls" that position, as you say, it's Rankin County. Mary may be the queen of brick city, but that's about as far as she goes. Side note, I grew up with Bubba and he is a solid guy. He was very active in church when I was a yute. I've always respected him.

Anonymous said...

to 7:02 ...im not family. bubba been around 30 years, about 15 of those as an ADA and rankin county attorney. maybe you should try to pay attention a little more.

Anonymous said...

Phil might have appointed him per his duty, but I "feel" fairly certain the outgoing DA, Mr. Guest, hand picked his predecessor for this "appointment" to carry out the good work he's been doing, prosecuting thugs and criminals in Rankin and Madison Counties.

Anonymous said...

The identity politicos are out in full force over a guys name, "Bubba". You Dems and liberals need to play by your own rules to have any credibility these days. That's like me assuming a Mayor named Lumumba and a Counselman named Stokes don't care about the "republicans" in their city...wait...hold that thought.

Bubba Bramlett is a good man from a good family. He was a pretty good quarterback for the Brandon Bulldogs back in the early 1980's. The man has always been a leader! He'll be a good DA too.

Anonymous said...

@11:22am... if only his ability to be a "pretty good quarterback for the Brandon Bulldogs" was a key component to prosecuting cases. Am I to assume that he played on the same football team as Michael Guest?

Anonymous said...

@9:27 PM , If you can't figure out why your mayor would want cozy relations with the DA and/or FBI, you might want to pause and think about that. Perhaps you haven't been around here long?

Marty Miller seemed like a great candidate to me but I admittedly have no knowledge of Mr. Bramlett(Bubba) Geez.

Anonymous said...

Bubba is a good guy. I have worked on cases with him. He is fair, knowledgeable, and easy to work with, yet not a push over. The truth of the matter is that Madison Rankin judges run the court system with an iron fist and that’s not about to change regardless of who is DA.

Anonymous said...

So. I've heard that Marty resigned from the DA's office. Anybody know if that's correct?

Anonymous said...

Does he have a name other than Bubba? Please tell me he does. And no, 9:09, 90% of us have never heard of Bubba. Makes me wonder where in hell Bryant gets his recommendations. Maybe down at Boots 'N More.

Anonymous said...

It is indeed perfect that the prosecutor of Rankin County be named Bubba.

@4:29 pm. Nice try. He also represents Madison County (which includes the snobs of “Madison the City”). Oh! And he also lives in Madison County.

1:01 If he hasn’t already he certainly intends to.

Bubba Bramlett will make a great DA!

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. 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.
