Filings reveal defense strategies in Melton case

Five filings today in the felony case against Jackson Mayor Frank Melton reveal some of the mayor?s defense strategies.

One of the strategies will be to impress upon jurors the criminal background of the northwest Jackson duplex, which Melton and his police bodyguards are accused of damaging, as well as its tenant, Evans Welch.

According to the filings, Melton?s attorneys plan to argue that the property was a crack house and that Welch has ?numerous misdemeanor convictions and several felony arrests.?
