Attorney General's Office

Some pardons on hold

At the request of Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, a Hinds County Circuit Court judge has granted an injunction to stop the release of former Gov. Haley Barbour’s pardoned criminals.

A preliminary injunction hearing has been set for 3 p.m. on Jan. 23 before Judge Tomie Green in Hinds County.

Hood requested the injunction Wednesday afternoon claiming that Barbour might have violated the state Constitution by pardoning some inmates who failed to give sufficient public notice that they were seeking clemency. (January 12, 2012, Page 1)
