UPDATE: Bain slated to plead to one federal count

ABERDEEN – Former Tupelo pharmacist Jim Bain will plead guilty to one unspecified federal count on Dec. 16, a new U.S. District Court document shows.

The court notice states that Bain will waive reading or an indictment for the filing of an information, which is a charge that does not come from a grand jury.

It also states he will plead to one count of the information at a 2:30 p.m. hearing before U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock in Aberdeen.

Last month, a federal docket notation showed that the former independent pharmacist faced a charge but no details have been released.

Bain and his attorney, Ronald Michael of Booneville, have not replied to repeated Daily Journal calls for information.

In 2012, questions about Bain arose after he surrendered his pharmacy license without giving a reason.
