Lamar Adams began serving his 235-month sentence this week at a federal prison in Arkansas.

FCI is a minimum security prison in the eastern part of Arkansas.

CNBC needs to do an American Greed episode on this scummy piece of garbage. Quite a step down from his country club digs. Maybe they'll let him put Yeti Cooler stickers on his cell wall to make him feel ta home.

So is Vivie still living large in that CCJ home that was paid for with stolen money? If so, when the hell will she be evicted?

Maybe Brent and Jon will join him soon. Until then, they're still collecting BD pay.

Are they seriously still employed by Baker Donelson? I guess the appearance of impropriety means jack shit when you're bringing in money for the fat cat partners that run the show.

"Oh, you swindled people out of millions? No big, as long as you bill enough hours that we get our bonuses and I can buy that tricked out F250 I've had my eye on."

Integrity? Ethics? Propriety? Honor? Probity? Ha! These are meaningless words at BD. They may use them to swoon big dollar clients, but when two of their own abet and promote the BIGGEST PONZI SCHEME IN MISSISSIPPI HISTORY, they turn a blind eye, do a little wink-wink, nudge-nudge, and sweep it all under the rug.

No one should give BD a nickel of business until they at least suspend these guys. But they won't. Not one partner there has the rectitude to do the right thing, apparently.

19 years? Wow - by the time he gets out he will be a master at Jeopardy, Ping Pong and Billiards.

I pulled him up on the federal inmate locator (Arthur Lamar Adams), but I haven't been able to find Guy E "Butch" Evans. Is he or has he been in prison yet?

Anonymous said...

I looked him up on the locator too, along with his cellmate Benjam "Ben" Dover.

I thought PERS was the biggest ponzi scheme in Mississippi

So you didn’t get that job you wanted at BD?

Is he in the FCI or the camp?

@ File in a cake. Looks like Butler Snow is taking the rap for Billings.

Wow, lots of BD apologists here! The top brass must be handing out $100 bills for any employee who will post in favor of them.

Who needs ethics, responsibility to clients, and integrity when you have MONEY!?!?!?!?!?

all of you clowns talking about prison cells, big bubba, squealing like a pig and all your other trash talk, you dont know much about a federal minimum security prison do you? well got news for you, it looks like a junior college campus and is run just about the same way. granted its still confinement and ive never see anyone pull up and ask to voluntarily check in, and 19 years is a long time but if one has to do time, a minimum security club fed is as good as it gets. that place aint parchment farm .

I heard that Lamar's prison assignment will be inmate financial adviser and income tax preparer.

1:00 pm FYI - Guy "Butch" Evans has been in the Federal Prison in Yazoo City for quite some time now. They wouldn't even let him go to his own father's funeral. He is paying his dues. Enuff said!

Baker Donelson has like 800 attorneys in major cities. I seriously doubt anyone at that firm gave a sh*t about two yahoos from the Jackson, Mississippi office.

Dear 7:31am...

Parchment is a writing material made from animal hides.

Parchman is a town in Mississippi where the state penitentiary is located.

Know the difference.

Two yahoos that assisted in fraud perpetrated toward partners and clients and have exposed the firm to federal penalties by using firm resources and offices to promote their scheme.

The idea that nobody gave a sh*t (as you so eloquently put it) is not a ringing endorsement of that law firm's leadership.

Yes, Baker has lots of attorneys in multiple cities, and while it is almost certain that many of them didn't know Alexander from, pardon the analogy, Adam(s), many or most were probably familiar with Seawright as he was on the firm's management committee. The idea that most of them knew what either were up to with regard to Adams' scam is silly and the idea that "the firm" knew all about it and chose to take the relative chump change in spite of that knowledge is beyond silly.

All that said, I suspect the lawsuit has gotten the attention of many at Baker, however. That many did not know anything about any of it may well get them out of any personal consequences, under the circumstances as charged in the receiver's complaint, it wouldn't help much with the firm's liability. I also suspect (and hope) that several firm policies and procedures have been dramatically changed as a direct result of this situation. While Seawright still being there isn't terribly surprising, Alexander still being there is somewhat surprising to an outsider looking in with only publicly-released information.

Regardless of the legal consequences, nothing touching, or really, tainted by, this will be a highlight in the firm's resume.

Wrong about Butch Evans. He is at the Forrest City facility in a different area than Lamar Adams. Butch has two months left.

Y’all have no idea how big Firms work.

Fortune 50 companies will not keep a firm whose executive leadership failed to make as much as a phone call to a timber mill to ascertain that it exists.

Lawyers have left and will leave as business moves.

Will it ruin them? No,

Will it be a painful stain as ALAS is called upon to pay some % of 85,000,000? You bet your ass it will.

And if you’ve never heard of need not comment.

@9:37, which big firm are you with?

Anonymous said...

January 10 at 9:37 PM mentioned ALAS.

It will be interesting to see what ALAS does in this situation. Baker is a "member firm" (it also appears that John Hicks of Baker is on the board) but I don't think either Butler Snow or Fishman Haygood are. In any event, it would seem the liability, if any, of each firm would likely be limited to losses directly resulting from their actions, not the entire amount lost by everyone - UNLESS - Adams' used Butler's or Baker's role and at least tacit approval/endorsement to promote it to non-clients AND Butler or Baker knew he was using them as a reference. Based upon what is known/charged, it would seem Butler's liability exposure as a firm is greater than Baker's and Butler isn't insured through ALAS, that'll be at least two insurers fighting making a payment. Plus, there is the question of coverage. As far as I know, there is no "GN & WS" (gross negligence & wanton stupidity) coverage offered by any insurer. If any of this winds up before the (State) appellate court, I'd bet the MSSC retains it and there is some new MS case law.

It might be very interesting to discover which clients, if any, of each firm made or lost money and when it was made or lost. Of course, it would be very interesting to see a complete list of every "investor" showing who made or lost what/when. Granted, in a Ponzi scheme, the early "investors" normally make money because that is how it works, so the mere fact that early investors who happen to be clients of Baker or Butler got returns isn't proof of anything, but if later "investors" who were clients of either firm didn't get hurt as bad as non-clients or if they suddenly stopped "investing" safely prior to the collapse, that could make things interesting.

The facts will answer these questions. Wait on them.

Sworn facts, not alleged facts.

"Sworn facts, not alleged facts."

DAMN! Is it April 1st ALREADY?!

At this point, things in pleadings are better referred to as "allegations" or "charges." For those who might be confused by that remark, "sworn facts" are always (well, when competent attorneys are involved) accompanied by language such as "information and belief." In other words, if it turns out the swearer is incorrect in the facts they have sworn, in common terms they have an "out" by claiming "I believed it was true at the time I swore it was true..."

Basically, the alleged facts may be sworn to and the person may really believe them to be true, but at the end of the day, until a court finds those allegations to be facts, they are not facts in the legal sense.

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.
