Legal News Line – Mississippi Bar to file complaint against Jim Hood

The Mississippi Bar is reportedly filing a complaint against Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood.

The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson reported Thursday that the Bar is expected to file a complaint over one of Hood’s campaign ads from last year. The complaint would follow one filed in November by the lawyer for a man accused of killing a Catholic priest.

Jeremy Wayne Manieri was charged with robbing and killing the Rev. Ed Everitt of Hammond, La., in July. Manieri told police he shot Everitt after he woke up to find the priest fondling him. He has not been indicted by a grand jury.
