NEMS360 – 2nd Alcorn justice recommended for reprimand in ticket-fixing case

CORINTH – The Commission on Judicial Performance is expected to recommend a reprimand and suspension for Alcorn County Justice Court Judge Jimmy McGee.

The commission will make its recommendations public today.

Based on an investigation that began in July 2010, the commission is recommending to the state Supreme Court that McGee be publicly reprimanded, suspended from office for 120 days without pay and assessed $100.

The commission found that McGee engaged in DUI ticket-fixing and also used his office to improperly interfere with the prosecution of a criminal defendant, according to a source close to the case.
