SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Mississippi Republican representative, Doug McLeod, was found not guilty after his trial Tuesday.
McLeod had been accused of domestic violence after sheriff’s deputies responded to his home on May 18. A call for help was made from inside the home, the incident report stated.
The case was heard by a justice court judge instead of a jury.
Despite the not guilty verdict, members of the Mississippi Republican Party are still concerned over the incident.
WLOX is gathering more information from today’s proceedings. We will update this story as new details become available.
McLeod represents District 107, which includes George and Stone County.
