Man appeals guilty plea in DUI case

By The Associated Press

OXFORD — A Jacksonville, Fla., man, who pleaded guilty in October to aggravated DUI, now says he didn’t know what he was doing and wants the Mississippi Supreme Court to overturn his conviction.

Dalton Trigg was charged in a 2011 accident in which a woman was injured. He was sentenced in April to 10 years in prison with six years suspended and four to serve.

The Oxford Eagle reports ( ) that Trigg’s new attorney filed an appeal on May 6 with the Supreme Court. In it, Trigg says he also didn’t get good advice from his former attorney.

Court documents show a judge asked Trigg during the plea hearing if Trigg was satisfied with his attorney and whether he knew the consequences of pleading guilty. Trigg said yes to each question.

    Dalton Trigg was a Trustee in the Oxford Jail when I was framed in the International Ricen plot against Obama, Wicker & Holland. He got a raw deal from his “former” attorneys (high profile Good ole boys) Yeah..I’ve had my share of THOSE boys. NO MORE. I will be checking in with Dalton from time to time “boys” to make sure he is not STILL being rail-roaded.
