Former Officer LaGracha Amon Carter-Boyd Arrested for Extortion
A former Hazlehurst police officer has been arrested following indictment on one count of extortion.
A Copiah County grand jury indicted 25-year-old LaGracha Amon
Carter-Boyd, of Hazlehurst, on Friday and sheriff's deputies arrested
Boyd, Attorney General Jim Hood confirmed Monday.
The indictment alleges that Boyd, while on duty, accepted money from a
citizen on the pretense of "fixing" a ticket that Boyd had previously
issued the same citizen.
If convicted, Boyd faces up to five years in jail.
