PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Hinds County court reporter appeared in Pearl Municipal Court Thursday on charges of disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest.

Danette Horne, 45, of Madison, pleaded guilty to disobeying a police officer. She was sentenced to 24 months of unsupervised probation, but the judge immediately expunged the sentence.

After the hearing, Lt. Butch Townsend of the Pearl Police Department said he's never heard of this happening.

The resisting arrest charge was remanded. Townsend said the charge could come up again.

Horne was arrested June 23 along with another Hinds County Circuit Court reporter.

Kimberly Parkman Smith, 43, pleaded guilty to first offense driving under the influence. The Brandon woman paid more than $1,300 in fines and court costs.
