Anyway, what we do know is that Balducci probably won’t be practicing law anytime soon. The Mississippi state bar heard from Balducci on Saturday evening, as it turns out. Balducci (or someone on his behalf) faxed a letter to Jackson indicating he intended to withdraw his license to practice law. The letter allegedly refers not only to his license in Mississippi, but to other jurisdictions as well: Texas, Alabama, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C.
Balducci could not be reached for comment.
Update: This just in: Balducci was arraigned in federal court in Oxford on Tuesday. He pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance. A lawyer was named, as well: Tim Balducci himself.
