Former Simon City Royals gang member faces racketeering charges

37-year-old Jason Marshall Bullock stood before Judge Michael Parker today in federal court on a charge of conspiracy in conjunction with a racketeering operation. Allegations include participating in a 1998 bank robbery in Seminary, aggravated assault, kidnapping, attempted murder, intimidation of witness, and drug dealing.

The indictment also alleges co-conspirators bribed Forrest County deputies on five separate occasions in 2008 to deliver contraband to Bullock, who was in jail on witness intimidation charges. According to the indictment, Bullock now lists his home as Century, Florida.

For years, Bullock was the reputed Hattiesburg leader of the Simon City Royals, a Chicago-based gang whose main base of operation in Mississippi is said to be the Gulf Coast. Bullock, also known as "Sir J-Mac," was surrounded by crying family members in his court appearance on Friday morning.

Upon his appearance before Judge Parker, his mother said to him "God is with us."

Bullock plead "not guilty," and was detained without bond. He will stand trial on August 19.
