Both sides rest in Pollard trial

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The prosecution and defense have rested in the case against Jesse Mae Pollard. She's charged with kidnapping 6-year-old Jayshayla Hopson back in April.

Her son, Devonta, took the stand against her this afternoon saying she was responsible for the crime. Federal prosecutors were considering dismissing the indictment against Devonta Pollard if he stayed out of trouble for two years, and if his mother pled guilty. She declined.

Devonta Pollard's trial will be held at a later date. He is a former University of Alabama basketball player.

Closing arguments in Jesse Mae Pollard's trial are set to begin Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
