JACKSON, MISS. (WJTV) — One of the assistant district attorney’s for Hinds County has filed a motion to quash an indictment pending against him.

Jamie McBride filed the motion Wednesday asking for the indictment to be rejected.

The 52-year-old was indicted earlier this month by a grand jury on two felony counts of conspiracy to hinder prosecution. He was accused of conspiring with District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith, former assistant DA Ivon Johnson and others to hinder prosecution of criminal defendant Christopher Butler in for different cases.

The motion said the case should be dismissed and that McBride cannot commit the crime of hindering prosecution while acting in his officials capacity as assistant district attorney. McBride also claims that the Attorney General’s office did not have the authority to convene the grand jury that issued the indictment.
