Jackson, MS - An Arkansas man has been arrested for false pretense in Sunflower County, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Seth Bradshaw, 35, of Pigott, Arkansas and formerly of Sunflower County, has been arrested following indictment by a Sunflower County Grand Jury on three counts of false pretense. Bradshaw is alleged to have leased hunting land, which he did not own. The indictment alleges that Bradshaw took money from three separate victims to the tune of approximately $30,000.
Bradshaw was arrested with the assistance of the Sunflower County Sheriff’s Office, where he was booked. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years (10 years each count) behind bars. As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
The case was investigated by Roger Cribb of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division and will be prosecuted by the division director, Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander.
