JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A woman has pleaded not guilty to federal charges accusing her of leading a scheme to kidnap a 6-year-old girl from an east Mississippi elementary school.
Jesse Mae Brown Pollard entered the plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson. Pollard is one of seven people charged in the scheme to kidnap the girl to pressure the child's mother in a land dispute.
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. Court papers say the child was released and knocked on a resident's door.
Among those named in the indictment is Pollard's son, Devonta Pollard, a former basketball player at the University of Alabama.
