County Court Clerk Facing Contempt Charges

STONEY COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Four judges say a Stone County court clerk hasn’t filed sentencing, probation or commitment orders in at least 36 cases. Circuit judges have ordered Jeffery O’Neal to appear in court today and explain why he shouldn’t be held in contempt. O’Neal appeared in court in June for failing to file annual financial reports with the state that showed cash flow of his office. That case was dismissed and O’Neal avoided a contempt charge after promising to catch up on the delayed filings. Circuit court clerk salaries are paid from collected cash.
