Board recommends reprimand for Lee Co. justice court judge

The Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance is recommending a reprimand for Lee County Justice Court Judge Rickey Thompson.

The recommendation goes to the Mississippi Supreme Court for review.

The commission alleges that Thompson interjected himself in a matter before the Justice Court involving a family member.

The commission says Thompson in May of last year told Lee County Deputy Clerk Shea Willis not to send out a warrant accusing Thompson's sister of assault.
