BREAKING: Following the publication of a @MSFreePress investigation, this morning in the Lafayette County Circuit Court, local defense attorney Kevin Frye has called for a suspension in the prosecution of all cases involving Metro Narcotics.
The presiding judge, Hon. Kent Smith, told counselor Frye he could consider suspensions on a case by case basis, but would not lump all cases together and suspend them.
I believe I heard Frye say he intended to try to have some of his cases suspended in the manner the judge recommended.

BREAKING: A @mississippifreepress investigation has uncovered the loss of tens of thousands of dollars in seized funds from the Lafayette County Metro Narcotics unit.
In an April 2016 letter an attorney representing the City of Oxford, wrote to the office of then MS state Auditor Stacey Pickering to discuss issues within Metro Narcotics. The attorney detailed the loss in his letter, believed to be at least $34,000.

A smaller, initial cash shortage was discovered by an Oxford deputy clerk about two years before Mallette wrote to the auditor's office.

"She found cash shortages in the two envelopes...which I think totaled around $4,000.” Mallette wrote at the time.
