It's back to court for two former Jackson Police Department officers accused of getting caught up in a bribery investigation involving thousands of dollars and drugs.
Monyette Jefferson and Terence Jenkins are two of the three former Jackson officers involved in the bribery case. Jefferson and Jenkins originally pleaded not guilty, but will appear in U.S. District Court in Jackson for a change of plea hearing.
The former officers were arrested earlier this year. The arrests stemmed from a 2010 FBI sting operation. That's when undercover agents posing as drug dealers allegedly met with Jefferson and Jenkins and a third former officer, Anthony Payne Jr.
The trio allegedly helped the agents load suitcases of cocaine off an airplane at Hawkins Field.
All three officers were arraigned in March. In a six count indictment, Jefferson is accused of accepting $20,000 in bribes and Jenkins and Payne are accused of accepting $10,000 each.
Payne has pleaded not guilty. His trial is set for sometime in November.
Wednesday's hearing is scheduled for 1:30 PM in Judge Dan Jordan's courtroom.
