Former Hinds County Deputy Circuit Court Clerk Arrested for Altering Public Records

July 1, 2014

A Terry resident has been arrested for creating false public records while serving as Hinds County Deputy Circuit Court Clerk, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Kimberly Keonna Gibson, aka Kimberly Keonna Turner, age 32, of Terry, has been arrested following indictment by  a Hinds County Grand Jury.  The indictment alleges that Gibson—while employed as a deputy circuit court clerk— altered marriage records “to show she was married when in fact she was not”.  Gibson is accused of altering records to show she was legally married to a Department of Corrections inmate in order to have conjugal visits.

Gibson was arrested at her home by U.S. Marshalls with assistance from deputies with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department. The case is being investigated by Larry Ware and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Larry Baker of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division.
