12 Years for Witness Intimidation

Madison-Rankin District Attorney John Bramlett issued the following statement.


Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced today that Courtney Rainey was sentenced by Judge Dewey Arthur to fifteen years with three suspended for the crime of witness intimidation. Rainey was tried in front of a Madison County jury on July 30, 2019 where she was found guilty of one count of witness intimidation.

This conviction stems from an incident where Ms. Rainey attempted to intimidate a witness into changing the statement the witness had previously given to investigators during the Canton Voter Fraud investigation.

District Attorney Bramlett stated, “Witness intimidation is an extremely serious felony; it strikes at the very heart of our system of justice. We completely support Judge Arthur’s sentence, and hope this sends a clear message that witness intimidation simply will not be tolerated in Madison or Rankin counties.”

Even though voter fraud is a very serious offense and a clear message needs to be sent to protect our elections, I can't help but feel sorry for her.

Why do you feel sorry for her?

I think this message had more to do with the witness intimidation than the voter fraud

This is total BS. The prosecutor and judge should be embarrassed for going for the "low hanging" fruit with high publicity while violent murders or wife beaters get far less time.

The justice system has never been perfect but it seems like it is a total shit show in Mississippi.

She needs to understand if you run with the big boys, you may trip and fall. Witness intimidation is serious stuff and anyone doing this stuff should expect very little sympathy from a judge.

She was convicted of witness intimidation, not voter fraud.

Question? Will this be the end in Canton or just the beginning of more indictments?

Feel sorry for her???

Why? She was guilty of stealing many folks right to have their vote counted fairly because she and others were conspiring to cast illegal votes - continuing a practice that has been the regular process in Canton for years/decades.

She got caught.

Bad enough - should go to jail. But she wasn't satisfied with having gotten caught at her illegal activities (conducted, one should note, for her personal benefit) so she went and tried to cheat the system again by getting someone else to lie under oath.

Feeling sorry for scum like this is beyond my comprehension. I hope she enjoys her vacation time spent in one of Mississippi's finest. And I hope several others of the Canton crew that have been stealing elections get to have adjoining cells with her.

4:51, why you feel sorry for her? Shes and arrogant female that feels she's entitled and that she would get away with it in Canton with Canton being what it is. I hope the rest of the Canton elected officials are looking ever their shoulders behind all this and quaking in their shoes.

I have zero sympathy for her

I'm surprised Ready Eddie and Babs Blackmon couldnt pull some strings with them being who they are and get her off.

If this were a white woman she’d be looking at 2 years probation. I hate the double standard in MS.

12 years for this one. 11 years for the cross burning fellow. 6 years for the Mexican illegal caught with enough Chinese manufactured, sold and shipped fentanyl to kill 500,000 Americans.
Right.....

The end in Canton. That's a laugh. She would have gotten elected most likely.

... while violent murders or wife beaters get far less time.

You know so little. Take your ignorant complaints to Hinds County. That is the venue where the "shit show" plays in living color 24/7/365.

Believe the show will continue. Have two chiefs under Shads sights and still have others waiting on the side lines.

Let this be a note in the journal of all the democrats who claim there are zero examples of voter fraud and intimidation. We hear that constantly - that it's merely a concoction of republican bullshit. Pass the word far and wide, deep and high...Voter fraud is real and rampant. Canton is a glaring example and this is just the iceberg's tip.

Do the crime, do the time. This ain't Hinds County with all of the blessings.

Don't confuse Madison County with the rest of Mississippi. Other venues may put up with this s**t but we don't, and we elect people to try to keep the system honest. If other venues are happy with the crooks that's their problem, and I'm happy to stay as far away from those venues as I can.

PS "violent murders or wife beaters get far less time." - not in Madison County. Look it up. And please spread the word to all Jackson thugs who think we are easy pickings for their crimes - we will catch you, prosecute you, and put you away for a long time.

5:50 - she is under indictment for voter fraud as well. That was one of the voter fraud cases that she was caught trying to intimidate (or bribe) witnesses.

And, in the for what its worth category, she is running for Justice Court Judge in Madison County.

How do you feel about having a Judge that has been out not only attempting to buy votes and falsify absentee ballots, but that also sees nothing wrong with intimidating or bribing witnesses?

Good for the DA. Not many in Mississippi are willing to do the hard work to tackle voter fraud issues - Madison/Rankin and Forest Counties are two of the jurisdictions that have been willing to take them on.

Of course, AG Hood did try one guy up in Tupelo and sent him to jail over the weekend for failing to report a contribution timely a few years ago, but that was personal, and obviously not family.

Seems a pretty heavy sentence for a non-violent crime. A year or so and extended parole with a prohibition on running for office or holding an appointed position would be more equitable. We must get away from race determining the sentence- also these inequitable bonds. Our justice system sometimes looks unjust.

7:00 p.m., you obviously don't live in this area, and are projecting your own prejudices on to others.

I think she should have received 25 years, instead of the 17.

If she were white, she would have received 30 years.

How about that Supreme. Banks case a few years ago. The election commission could not agree that all the votes had been counted and tithe republicans would not agree to the two democrats request to recount. The republicans cheated Banks out of a victory. That was voter fraud and no one prosecuted. In Madison county republicans walk and black folks get the book. I know y’all are crooked as hell.

I feel sorry for Canton, as it used to be a nice place to live and work.

@11:49 - Thanks for posting. tell Uncle Karl hello from our gang. BBQ soon.

Now Madison County doesn't "cane" people as punishment, but I'll tell you, their criminal justice efforts and reputation have the same effect as to deter crime.

Madison county is no different that any other county when it comes to criminal trials. If the case goes to the jury it all depends on the jury. A guy and his brother broke in to my house. Trashed my house and stole most anything of value to them. Canton PD caught both of them. Their hand and finger prints were found in my house. Rand the prints and got solid positive matches on both. When the trial was handed to the jury we got 11 guilty and 1 not guilty votes. The POS walked on a mistrial. The jury makeup was racially equal except one old black man on the jury though the guy needed another chance even though the evidence was solid and placed him in my house.

Did I get any of my things back.....No.

7:46, you tell me how Madison County is better or different than any other county at convicting and sentencing. If you haven't lived it and experienced it first hand you don't have a clue.

No, this show is just getting started. There is plenty more coming down the pike. I told J.J. to keep an eye on this several weeks ago, but the Pelehatchie thang was "where it was at". Keep plenty of popcorn on hand.

I thought this was an article about Antonio Brown.

1149, you obviously don't know a damp thing about that case or do know but would rather spew your rhetoric of falso talking points.

Doraey, is that you? Sounds like the cap you tried to sell with your idiotic motion ( as opposed to properly filing a 'contest').

The votes in that election were all properly counted. The election commission voted 3-2 not to count the affidavit ballots cast by people that lived in Hinds and Rankin County. Same vote 3-2 that happened on every other vote - some commissioners voting to follow the law (three) and some voting either their political preference or else voting to ignore the law, take your choice (2).

That's what election contests are for - to see if things were done properly and correct them when they weren't. In this case, the contest showed they were done correctly. Get over it - stealing elections has gone on in Canton for decades, under the guidance of Ike, his family, Ed and Babs, and your boy Banks and his family.

Voter fraud needs to be investigated and prosecuted. Be glad we have a DA willing to take on this fight.

I don't feel sorry for her at all. Think about it: She was in 100% control of whether she went to jail or not. She chose not to stay out of jail. Why should I feel sorry for her about what she did to herself? I'm sick of being expected to feel sorry for other peoples' lack of personal responsibility!

Next time the discussion turns to the Canton Separate Municipal School System, don't forget that this woman is on the school board. And she'll be replaced by another of similar character.

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.
