Woman found guilty in Canton polling place disturbance

CANTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Kimberly Readus, a former Canton Municipal Executive Committee member has been found guilty of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and providing false information to officers. She was arrested back in May, the night after the election, while leaving the courthouse with ballot boxes.

She got 30 days jail time, suspended, on each count, and was fined $950. She also received one year probation.

It began when she got into an argument with an elderly woman over the boxes not being sealed.

The incident which was caught on cell phone video was played in court Monday.

The Madison county District Attorney's office says Readus is part of a larger Grand Jury investigation into possible illegal activities during the Canton elections, which could be complete next month.
