The case against the Jackson County attorney whose case had twice been dismissed was not included in this week’s Grand Jury indictments. 

Jessica Sullivan had been indicted in both July and October on various meth-related charges.  Her case was first dismissed in October to allow for new charges to be brought before the Grand Jury. 

After being re-indicted, Sullivan’s case was ready to go to trial last week when the prosecution asked again to dismiss the case to allow for new evidence to be presented to the Grand Jury.  

However, Sullivan’s case was not presented to the Grand Jury earlier this week.  Barring an interim special session of the Grand Jury, Sullivan’s case could go before the Grand Jury again in July. 

In the meantime, the administrative order barring Sullivan from practicing law in the Fifth Judicial Circuit has been lifted and will remain lifted unless Sullivan is indicted later this year.
