A Columbus woman arrested in 2006 and charged with violating a Mississippi Health Department quarantine was sentenced during the current term of the Lowndes County Circuit Court.
Latora Lashay Hill, of 1204 Seventh St. S. in Columbus, pleaded guilty to one count of false pretense and one count of violation of a health department quarantine order. She was sentenced as a habitual offender to a total of 15 years in MDOC and must pay a $20,000 fine.
The sentence came as a result of a November 2006, arrest, during which Hill was charged with violating the quarantine imposed on her after a sexual partner said she was practicing unsafe sex.
Mississippi law requires citizens with a sexually transmitted disease inform all sexual partners prior to sexual activity and use some form of protection during sex to prevent infecting others.
The following other cases were processed during the current term of the Lowndes County Circuit Court:

Mississippi isn't half bad! We at least make an ATTEMPT in the public schools here to ensure each child learns proper spelling and has the ability to punctuate their sentences! We sometimes fail.
And how DARE us try to make criminals here responsible for their actions!
And it could be worse. At least we're not Arkansas, West Virginia or (shudder) Alabama!

I wish the Manufacturing of Meth charges were handled as liberal as the sale of cocaine. All of it hazardous, but it is my understanding that meth is made by using acid of some sort. I could be wrong but it causes serious mental damage and people get off with five years for having a lab! That's crazy.
