Shortly after Mississippi Attorney General Jim hood took the stand this morning during Mayor Frank Melton's federal civil-rights trial, defense attorneys for Melton and Recio moved to block a May 26, 2006, letter Hood sent to Melton warning him about potential gun violations. In the letter, Hood told Melton that, while Melton had a license to carry a concealed weapon, "that license does not allow you to carry such a gun everywhere" under state law.
Judge Dan Jordan, who is presiding over the trial, allowed the letter to be admitted with redactions.
Doesn't look too good for Frank.
