Federal court records say a woman charged with leading the plot to kidnap a 6-year-old girl from a Mississippi school will use insanity as her defense.
The woman who authorities say orchestrated the plan, Jesse Mae Brown Pollard, and her son, Devonta Pollard, a former basketball player at the University of Alabama, are among seven people charged in the case.
The document filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Jackson said Pollard will use insanity as her defense.
The child was taken from East Kemper Elementary School on April 30 and turned up unharmed on a rural road in Enterprise the next day.
Abby Brumley, Jesse Pollard's lawyer, had no comment other than to say the defense will be that her client "was insane at the time of the offense."
