State of Mississippi secondary Archives: on Crime


Tate Reeves: Strengthen public safety; more police officers in schools

Reeves pushed to strengthen public safety and make Mississippi a safe place to raise a family. The Legislature has passed laws to allow for the prosecution of attempted murder and to closely monitor sex offenders using GPS devices. He is committed to protecting 2nd Amendment Rights. Several new laws protect the state's most vulnerable citizens--children. Reeves' initiative to help school districts hire trained law enforcement for campus protection will place more officers in schools.

Mike Espy: Resigned for accepting gifts; but acquitted criminally

In 1994 he was pressured to resign his position as US Secretary of Agriculture amid allegations that he inappropriately received gifts. Independent Counsel presented more than 70 witnesses in the trial; Espy's defense rested without calling witnesses. Espy wholeheartedly snubbed a plea bargain. Although [the Independent Counsel] proved that Espy received the gifts, he failed to demonstrate that Espy did something in return for them. On Dec. 2, 1998, Espy was acquitted of all 30 criminal charges.
