The Mississippi Supreme Court has suspended Lee County Justice Court Judge Rickey W. Thompson from office for 30 days without pay, effective Jan. 26.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that the Supreme Court Thursday also fined Thompson and ordered public reprimand in circuit court.

Last April, Thompson was accused of misconduct in documents filed by the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance.

The commission alleged that Thompson dismissed 11 no-drivers' license citations without court hearings and telling a man involved in a divorce that he could get anything that belonged to him from
the marital home, resulting in a call by the wife to the sheriff's office.
