JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jesse Mae Pollard pleaded not guilty to federal charges of kidnapping 6-year old Jashayla Hopson from her school. Pollard is accused of leading a scheme to kidnap Hopson to pressure the child's mother in a land dispute.     

Jashayla was taken from East Kemper Elementary School in April. She was found on a rural road in Enterprise the next day. She knocked on a door and that homeowner called police.     

Among those accused of helping Pollard is her son, Devonta Pollard, a former basketball player at the University of Alabama.
