3rd ex-Jackson officer to plead in bribery case

JACKSON, Miss. —  

Federal court records say the last of three former Jackson police officers charged in a bribery case will plead guilty.

A federal court filing Monday in U.S. District Court in Jackson says Anthony Ricardo Payne plans to plead guilty in the case. A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, one week before his trial was to start.

Two other former officers, Monyette Quintel Jefferson and Terence Dale Jenkins, pleaded guilty Oct. 17. Their sentencing is Jan. 7.

The three men were indicted on charges of accepting bribes to protect drug shipments. It turned out the men they thought were drug dealers were really FBI agents.
