Judge allows medical evaluation in gun case

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — A federal judge has issued an order allowing a psychologist to evaluate a man who wants to use an insanity defense against two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of guns.

Davis Lamar Brooks is charged in U.S. District Court in Jackson with possessing guns in Rankin County in November 2009 and January 2011. Brooks’ attorney, Omodare Jupiter, filed a notice in September that says his client will rely on an insanity defense.

The judge ruled Friday that the evaluation can take place.

A filing in court records says Brooks believed the Aryan Brotherhood gang implanted a microphone in his head and tried to poison him.
