Brown sentenced to four 20-year terms


This past Monday, in Kemper County Circuit Court, Neshoba County resident, Jerome Brown received four twenty-year sen­tences, for the deaths of a family in a vehicle crash that took place on September 25, 2017, at 11:30 p.m. The presiding judge was the Honorable Charles Wright, to whom Brown plead guilty to the charges.

Brown was charged with four counts of felony driving under the influence, causing death, for the accident that took the lives of a fa­ther, mother and two children. The victims names were not given.

The four sentences are to run concurrently, meaning that Brown will serve all four sentences at the same time, therefore essentially serving 20 years.

According to Sheriff James Moore, the accident took place on Hwy. 21 near Preston, and Brown was definitely driving under the in­fluence.

Moore said, "This is one reason why the Sheriff's Department and Highway Patrol work very hard to get impaired drivers off the road, because they are a hazard and a danger to the general public."
