Former Mississippi Judge Sentenced for Simple Assault

Bill Weisenberger, a former Madison County justice court judge, was sentenced Wednesday for simple assault after pleading guilty earlier.

Weisenberger was given a six months suspended sentence, three months of supervised probation and three months of unsupervised probation, according to a release from state Attorney General Jim Hood.

In addition, the former judge must pay a $500 fine, $500 to the Crime Victims Fund and must serve 100 community service hours at Our Daily Bread Ministry, a feeding program for low-income families, in Canton.

In February 2015, Weisenberger was indicted for misdemeanor simple assault on a vulnerable adult. The indictment stems from a May 2014 incident at the Canton Flea Market where Weisenberger allegedly struck a 20-year-old African-American man and yelled, “Run, n-----, run.”

There should be a random review of the cases he presided over. His attitude and aggression didn't happen overnite. How many people did he harm when he was on the bench?
