Hinds County DA arrested, again; faces charges of stalking, robbery

Two-year-old claims of stalking, robbery and domestic violence are the latest development in the twisting, turning saga surrounding Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith.

He faces two felony charges, aggravated stalking and robbery, after being indicted May 25 by a Rankin County grand jury.

He also faces two counts of misdemeanor simple domestic violence.

Smith was arrested Tuesday — for the second time in less than a year — after he turned himself in at the Rankin County Jail.
