JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Mayor Frank Melton, who has taken a hard stand against the city's rising crime rate, pleaded guilty to weapons charges Wednesday in a deal with prosecutors that lets him stay in office and out of jail.
The mayor stood and acknowledged the agreement more than 90 minutes after his trial on the charges was to start. A jury had already been seated.
Melton, 57, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors for carrying a weapon into a church and a park, and no contest to a reduced charge on what had been a felony count involving a gun on a university campus.
He was given a six-month suspended sentence on each count, plus one year probation, and was fined $1,500.
(any other citizen would have been thrownin jail ! and had he been a Republican it would have been demanded that he resign )
The Second Amendment IS Homeland Security !
