Tishomingo County man loses appeal on parole revocation

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — The state Court of Appeals has denied a Tishomingo County man’s efforts to have his parole revocation thrown out.

WTVA-TV reports that Jay McCalpin was out of parole after serving a three-year sentence for sexual battery when he was arrested on a felony stalking charge by Belmont police.

A complaint filed in 2009 claimed McCalpin followed a teenager into the parking lot of a Belmont business and blocked her car where she couldn’t get out. The complaint says McCalpin sat in his vehicle staring at the girl until a man inside the business came outside and he drove away.

McCalpin was ordered back to prison following a parole revocation hearing.

The Appeals Court on Tuesday rejected McCalpin’s argument that the state failed to prove he had committed a crime.
