    Bolton federal trial

    Bolton federal trial

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Forrest County Chief Deputy Charles Bolton and his wife, Linda, that were convicted of a combined 14 felonies, have been released on bond.

The Boltons were transported to Stone County Correctional Facility and held overnight before their bond hearing before U.S. District Magistrate Judge Robert Walker in Gulfport.

Charles and Linda were each released on $25,000 unsecured bonds.

Charles was ordered to surrender his badge, law enforcement identification as well as any weapons and ammunition, including his off duty weapons at his residence, according to court records.

Mississippi Code, 19-25-19, states; you cannot serve as a deputy sheriff if you have been convicted of a felony, and with the felony convictions, Charles is no longer allowed to fill that capacity.

“Both Boltons have been extremely compliant during pretrial supervision,” U.S. Probation Officer Jason Miller said, via an email in court records.

It took a jury five hours and 33 minutes to convict the two on a combined 14 counts of federal tax crimes in a three day trial.

The Boltons are set to be sentenced at the William M. Colmer Federal Courthouse in Hattiesburg on Dec. 19.
