' Appointments: 601-899-3420 Ik Wilson Carroll's 8-Point Plan to Fight Crime 1. Target repeat offenders. A small number of bad actors commit the vast majority of crime in Hinds County, often in their own neighborhoods. Getting these individuals off the streets will have a dramatic impact on crime. I'll work closely with law enforcement to identify these repeat offenders and put them in prison. 2. Convene the grand jury monthly. Currendy the Hinds County Grand Jury meets every other month, while grand juries in neighboring counties meet every month. I'll convene the grand jury as often and as long as it takes to clear up the backlog in our county jail. 3. Demand speedy trials. Justice delayed is justice denied. I'll fight continuances and establish a goal of prosecuting cases within 90 to 120 days after an arrest is made. 4. Open records. Under my watch the Hinds County District Attorney's Office will maintain open records (except where secrecy is required by law, as in juvenile cases and grand jury proceedings). Also, I'll establish a web site providing public information on the status of cases. 5. Put Assistant DA.S back on the ground floor of investigations. My assistants will work with law enforcement to build each criminal case every step of the way, from arrest to indictment to trial. 6. Establish a cold case unit. I'll designate at least one assistant DA to re-open cases that have been mishandled or remanded to the file. 7. Support alternative sentencing. If a young person is addicted to drugs, I'll support sentencing through our Drug Court where he or she can receive treatment. I'll also structure sentences to encourage or even require young inmates to obtain their GED or graduate from a vocational-technical course while incarcerated. 8. Use the Grand fury to investigate crimes. I'll use the Grand Jury pro-actively to break up drug rings and pursue white-collar criminals. Whenever possible, we will obtain indictments before arresting a suspect, which will result in faster trial settings and fewer dismissals. Criminals don't care if their victims are Democrat, Republican, black or white. Hinds County voters can't afford to focus on party affiliation or race, but instead must choose whoever can make our streets and neighborhoods safe again. The citizens of Hinds County want leadership in the fight against crime, not more excuses and finger pointing. As our District Attorney, Wilson Carroll will take responsibility for restoring the Hinds County criminal justice system. It' s rime to put rear of swift and sure punishment into criminals rather than allowing them to put fear into us. We can do something to fight crime!
