US: Insurance agent charged in Mississippi prison bribery case
25 Aug 2016

A Jackson insurance agent is the latest person indicted in a corruption case tied to the former head of the Mississippi prison system.

Guy E. “Butch” Evans, 61, appeared briefly Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson and pleaded not guilty to one count of bribery and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

An indictment says that from 2012 to 2014, Evans, owner of Insurance Premium Services, gave kickbacks to Christopher Epps, who was then the state corrections commissioner, in exchange for exclusive access to sell insurance to Department of Corrections employees.
