AG Hood says Barbour violated constitution and is asking Judge Tommie Green to order a temporary injunction on all releases. Hood wants 4 murderers and 1 robber ordered back to prison. He says many did not meet requirement of law to file and publish their request 30 days prior to pardon. Some filed as late as January 6th, and now AG Hood needs to go through each case on list.
A Mississippi judge has temporarily blocked the release of 21 inmates who'd been given pardons or medical release by Republican Haley Barbour in one of his final acts as governor.
Hood said he believes Barbour might've violated the state constitution by pardoning some inmates who failed to give sufficient public notice that they were seeking to have their records cleared.
