ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) — Jody Mac Rock, a Pontotoc County minister, has pleaded guilty to two civil rights violations while he was an Ecru police officer.
Indicted last May, Rock was accused of making two traffic stops on June 7, 2008, and securing cash in lieu of issuing a traffic citation.
That action constituted depriving the individuals of their constitutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/YYrkwb ) the 35-year-old Rock admitted his actions to the court Tuesday and faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 fine for each offense.
Rock remains free on bond while he awaits a sentencing date.
