(Nesbit, MS)  A woman called police, back in 2011, saying Jeremy Clark was holding her hostage at gun point.  Police rushed out there and found Clark.

They searched the home and didn’t find a hostage, but did find a marijuana plant. It was growing right under the carport of his mother's home.

His mother, Bonita Clark is a senior probation officer but she didn't notice her son growing marijuana at her own home.

She told us she had nothing to say about her son and she’s not permitted to speak to the media.

As part of a plea deal, her son admitted he was guilty, but he received no jail and won’t have a felony on his criminal record.

Even the judge pointed it out, telling Clark in court, “This is a real big break”.
