Former Tallahatchie Sheriff Gets Six Years

The former Sheriff of Tallahatchie County will now get a chance to experience the criminal justice system from the other side of the bars.  U.S. District Judge Mike Mills sentenced William Brewer to serve six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to one count of extorting a bribe in November.  The FBI caught Brewer running a protection racket for a drug dealer as Sheriff.





An agent's affidavit (p.23)  attached to the criminal complaint provides more details of this sordid affair:

5. CHS also reported that approximately two to three years ago, BREWER found out CHS was dealing methamphetamine that CHS had purchased from illegal drug suppliers (rather than stealing from drug dealers as CHS had conspired with BREWER to do for the previous 12 years before this). For the last two to three years, CHS paid BREWER $500.00 to $600.00 every other week from the proceeds of CHS's illegal drug dealing.

6. BREWER is fully aware of CHS's crimes and illegal drug activity which consists of, but is not limited to, the illegal distribution of methamphetamine. BREWER protected, conspired, and allowed CHS to conduct illegal activity in Tallahatchie County for approximately the last 15 years. In exchange for BREWER's protection and freedom to conduct illegal activity in Tallahatchie County, CHS provided monetary proceeds to BREWER from all of CHS's illegal activity. On more than one occasion, BREWER warned CHS to proceed with caution while conducting illegal activity due to the presence of local, state, and/or federal law enforcement.

7. FBI agents approached the CHS on June 12, 2018, and CHS agreed to work for the FBI.

8. From June 13, 2018 through approximately June, 20, 2018, CHS and BREWER planned and agreed together, in person and through recorded telephone calls, to rob a drug dealer in Tallahatchie County, for approximately nine to ten bricks of methamphetamine. A brick of methamphetamine is equivalent to a kilogram. A kilogram is equal to 35 ounces or 1,000 grams. BREWER did not know that the CHS was working with the FBI at this time and that the theft from the drug dealer was a ruse. Under the direction of the FBI, CHS paid BREWER a total of $10,000.00. BREWER accepted three payments from CHS on June 21, 2018, July 5, 2018, and July 26, 2018. BREWER believed CHS had robbed a drug dealer in Tallahatchie County just like they had planned and executed in the past, approximately 50 times. [Attachment A - complete list of serial numbers for $10,000.00 paid to BREWER] The initial payment represented the money supposedly stolen by CHS from the drug dealer and the last two payments represented a portion of the proceeds from the supposed sale of the stolen bricks of methamphetamine.


9. On June 20, 2018, at the direction of the FBI, CHS made a recorded telephone call to BREWER. CHS told BREWER that CHS had robbed a drug dealer. CHS wanted to meet with BREWER, but BREWER had people with him and was unavailable to meet. BREWER told CHS to contact him the next day.

10. On June 21, 2018, CHS traveled to BREWER's residence to pay BREWER $6,500.00 dollars, which BREWER believed was the money CHS had stolen from the drug dealer. The $6,500.00 was concealed in a cellular telephone box that can be described as green in color and is the average size box that a cellular telephone would be packaged in when purchased. The cellular telephone box has writing on it for a Straight Talk Wireless, LG REBEL 3 LTE, five inch screen, Android 7.0, 16 GB internal memory. When the cellular telephone box is opened, a unique barcode sticker with the numbers 616960226352 are visible. [Attachment B- photographs of the cellular telephone box, photographs of the $6,500.00 paid to BREWER, and serial numbers for the $6,500.00] During a recorded conversation, while CHS was at BREWER's residence, CHS told BREWER that CHS had robbed a drug dealer and made it known that CHS had recovered ten kilograms of methamphetamine and money. CHS handed BREWER the cellular telephone box with $6,500.00 and told BREWER to examine it. BREWER examined it, then handed the cellular telephone box with the money back to CHS, and told CHS to put it under a bucket in the barn located directly southeast from BREWER's residence across HWY 32. CHS followed BREWER's instructions and placed the money in a bucket in the barn and departed the location. BREWER's residence at 7533 HWY 32 East, Oakland, MS 38948 can be described as a one story farm style house, red brick, black shingled roof, and white pillars on the front and side of the house. BREWER's barn, directly southeast from his residence and across HWY 32, can be described as a large steel framed shed with tin covering three sides. [Attachment C- aerial photograph of BREWER's residence and barn, photographs of BREWER's residence, and photographs of BREWER's barn.]

11. On June 21, 2018, shortly after CHS departed from BREWER's barn, there was a recorded telephone call between CHS and BREWER. BREWER asked CHS where CHS put "that shit" (referring to the money in the barn). CHS described to BREWER where CHS had put the money. BREWER told CHS that BREWER had it and ended the telephone call.

12. On July 5, 2018, CHS traveled to BREWER's residence to pay BREWER $1,000.00, which BREWER believed were the proceeds from CHS's sale of the stolen methamphetamine. During a recorded conversation, while CHS was on BREWER's property, BREWER instructed CHS to put the money in the same place CHS had on June 21, 2018. CHS told BREWER that CHS had a couple more bricks of methamphetamine left to sell. BREWER warned CHS to be careful who CHS was dealing with during CHS's illegal activity. CHS then followed BREWER's instructions and placed the money in a bucket in the barn and departed the location. [Attachment D-photograph of the $1,000.00 paid to BREWER, and serial numbers for the $1,000.00]

13. On July 26, 2018, CHS traveled to BREWER's residence to pay BREWER $2,500.00, which BREWER believed were the proceeds from CHS's sale of the stolen methamphetamine. During a recorded conversation, while CHS was at BREWER's residence, CHS told BREWER that CHS had sold all of the bricks of methamphetamine CHS had stolen and had nothing left. BREWER encouraged CHS to continue selling methamphetamine. BREWER warned CHS to be careful who CHS was dealing with during CHS's illegal activity. BREWER instructed CHS to put the money in the same place CHS had on June 21, 2018 and July 5, 2018. CHS then followed BREWER's instructions and placed the money in a bucket in the barn and departed the location. [Attachment E-photographs of the $2,500.00 paid to BREWER, and serial numbers for the $2,500.00]
Federal marshals arrested Brewer in August 2018.  A federal grand jury indicted him on five counts of extorting a bribe and one count of conspiracy to possess narcotics with the intent to distribute.

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.
