Simpson Co. judge arrested on littering charge

SIMPSON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Simpson County Justice Court Judge Ted Blakeney was arrested Wednesday and charged with littering.

According to Simpson County Sheriff Kenneth Lewis, there are only two Justice Court judges in Simpson County. The second judge refused to hear Blakeney's case because of their working relationship.

Lewis says a Circuit Judge will have to appoint a special judge to hear the case. No trial date has been set. Lewis did not elaborate upon the extent of the reported littering.
