Beth Ann White Indicted

The wheels of justice continue to grind on against Beth Ann White.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted White for four counts of aggravated DUI on March 25.  White stands accused of driving drunk and killing Allison Conaway and her infant son while severely injuring Conaway's two daughters when White crashed into Conaway's vehicle at the intersection of Highway 18 and Springridge Road. 

A test taken several hours after the crash at the hospital showed her BAC to be 0.16. A trooper testified there were partially full liquor bottles in her vehicle. 

The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Winston Kidd.  Attorney Kevin Camp represents the defendant.  Judge Kidd denied bond to White but she filed a motion for bond on April 28.  Judge Kidd will hold a hearing on the motion on June 15 at 1:00 PM.  

The Conaway family sued White and other defendants in a wrongful death action.  


White has a history of DUI arrests. JJ reported on November 3:

Posted below are the court records JJ has managed to unearth so far.

* Case #16-cr-0035: White was charged with an unspecified misdemeanor in 2016. The case was dismissed October 8, 2021 by Special County Court Judge Jess Dickinson. The case was prosecuted by the city of Jackson.

* Case #16-cr-00789: A MHP trooper arrested White on February 17, 2015 four DUI. Hines County Justice Court Judge Tabitha Britton – Porter found White guilty and sentenced her to to pay a $1,000 fine on June 10, 2016. However, she appealed the County Court. The case languished on the docket until Special County Court Judge Jess Dickinson dismissed it a year ago due to the age of the case.

* Case #15-cr-00176: A Jackson Municipal Court Judge convicted her of DUI, careless driving, and driving on the wrong side of the street. White appealed to Hinds County Court. Special County Court Judge Jess Dickinson dismissed the case on October 4, 2021 after the prosecution said it could not prosecute the case due to "reasons beyond its control."

 Attorney Marc Brand represented White in the above cases.

Court records show a DUI felony indictment in 2008 against her as well. White pleaded guilty. Judge Tomie Green sentenced her to serve five years in MDOC but suspended four year of the sentence and placed her under house arrest for one year. Judge Green terminated her probation in 2017.

Thank you Justice Dickinson.

Yes, you were appointed to 'clean up' the docket in Hinds County and you damn sure did that. You cleaned up all those languishing cases by dismissing them. Hell, I could have done that.

Guess the lawyers won again by using the Hinds County Non-Justice system of delay until it gets old, and then get the drunks, crooks, car-jackers, murderers, whatever back on the street.

Before I laud all my thanks on the fine Justice for his hard work dismissing cases, I should also thank the sitting regular Judges here for not doing their damn job and trying cases. Yes, the lawyers might want a delay; yes, the prosecutor might want a delay - but no, you don't have to grant them.

Just read about a prisoner who escaped from her 'work' in Birmingham and was recaptured. She had been sentenced to 20 years for a third degree burglary.

Imagine that - hell, in Hinds County one doesn't get sentenced to 20 years for anything. Third degree burglary, time served and an apology (and in Judge Green's court, the apology comes with a blessing as well.)

If she had an indictment for felony DUI (assuming that the indictment arose from having two prior DUI convictions--not arrests) when did those convictions occur?

The "judicial" systems throughout the nation are the core reason for so much chaos. It serves to provide the appearance of due process, etc. but only to allow lawyers to make a living. Communities then become filled with habitual cancers in them that run their course until the host is rotting from the inside.

This is a death sentence case. By the time we see it go to court and conviction(s) handed down, she'll have died of natural causes.

If cops, who are a threatened species getting less professional and rarer in Jackson, neglect twice to show up to give testimony in court, but a defendant with a clean record appears both times, the case can be dismissed.

We have a shortage of cops, quality and leadership at JPD thanks to our radical, meddling marxist mayor.

Aaron Banks would be a vast improvement as mayor: let's give him a raise.

There are several officers (that do a lot of dui work) at JPD. As a defense attorney I sigh at their name because they always show up, take pride in their job, and do it properly. Many other officers I know have thrown in the towel due to frustration and seeing everything too top heavy with few actual working officers but with higher paid people with two assistants each commanding a desk.

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.
