HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Legal counsel representing Forrest County Chief Deputy Charles Bolton and his wife, Linda, has subpoenaed the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino to produce gambling activity of Hub City attorney John Lee.

Lee is a Hattiesburg attorney that has conducted business with the Boltons in the past.

The subpoena was filed in Federal court Wednesday afternoon and requested that the Beau Rivage produce Lee's gambling losses, gambling winnings and gambling ratings between 2009 and 2013.

Legal counsel has also subpoenaed gambling related tax forms from the same time period.

It is unclear as to why Bolton's legal counsel is interested in Lee's gambling records, but previous court filings show that business transactions between Lee and Bolton will be important pieces of evidence in Bolton's upcoming federal trial. 

Lee has already made clear his intention to exercise his Fifth Amendment rights and not testify in the Bolton trial, even as recent as Tuesday in a motion filed.

“The government has spoken with defense counsel for John Lee and has been informed that Mr. Lee is extremely ill, as a result he probably cannot appear, and in any event would assert his Fifth Amendment privilege not to testify if he did appear,” said Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr. in the motion.

The Bolton's are set to begin trial on Sept. 12.

Additional Subpoenas:

Additional subpoenas were filed Wednesday by the defense, in the federal trial of Forrest County Chief Deputy Charles Bolton and his wife, Linda.

Terry Martin, the director of Public Safety at Forrest General Hospital, was served a subpoena to testify in the trial that is expected to start on Monday.

BancorpSouth, located at 100 Hardy Street, was also served a subpoena to produce documents in the case that pertain to the checking account of Hub City attorney John Lee.

“Produce copies of the front and back of the checks referenced on Exhibit A pages 1 through 12 issued from the BancorpSouth checking account of John Lee,” according to the subpoena.

The 12 pages of the checking account listed in the subpoena detail $391,243.39.
