Smith’s Rankin County trial pushed back to March


RANKIN COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) — The Rankin County trial for Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith has been continued again.

The trial was set to begin this week but is now pushed back to March 19.

According to the Attorney General’s office, documents that Smith’s side subpoenaed were not delivered in time, which was the reason for the delay.

Authorities indicted Smith in May on the charges of simple domestic violence, felony aggravated stalking and felony robbery.

The allegations stemmed from an alleged incident that happened in 2015 with an ex-girlfriend.
