MADISON COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Now a follow up to a report we on a civil judgement dismissed against Kay Pace, the Madison County Tax Collector. Pace was in Justice Court Tuesday along with Marvin Brett Nobles.
The woman who filed the claim seeking past due rent wants to know why Nobles, a convicted felon, was driving a marked Madison county vehicle to court Tuesday.
Madison,MSDeborah Martin of Nashville, Tennessee took these photo's in Canton. She claims it's Marvin Nobles and Kay Pace. She is outraged the man she identifies as Nobles drove a Madison County Tax Collector vehicle to court for the hearing.
Our records search found Nobles was convicted of burglary, grand theft, and charged with making a false statement to obtain unemployment compensation in 2006 in Escambia County Florida. Martin questions why a non county employee was allowed to drive and what would happen if he had an accident.
Deborah Martin is the homeowner who sued the elected official and Nobles for past due rent on her Madison County farm. Nobles lived on the property. A Justice Court judge threw out Martin's claim because there was no written agreement with Nobles.
The State Auditor has no comment because a formal complaint has not been lodged with his office. We were unable to reach the attorney for the Madison County Board of Supervisors to find out about the county's vehicle use policy.
