Clinton Mayor, Hinds DA trade verbal blows at press conference

A press conference held Wednesday by the city of Clinton to address the problem of repeat offenders “terrorizing” the citizens and calling on the Hinds County DA to take decisive action became fairly intense when the DA showed up unannounced.

Clinton Mayor Phil Fisher called the conference to talk about four repeat offenders in particular: Cedric Williams, Woodrez Davis, Michael Millender, and Matthew Eakin, whom he said had long criminal histories, and in some cases had their habitual offender statuses rescinded in plea deals, allowing them to be back out on the street.
