    Crazy how the news will spin a story and how law enforcement can influence an individual to taking a guilty plea just so they can get a “conviction” and keep their rates up to secure federal and state funding. And if an individual lives below the poverty line and cannot obtain a lawyer that individuals rights will be trampled in the state of Mississippi
