Dillard

CHICKASAW COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A Chickasaw County man is sentenced to 20 years for domestic assault, kidnapping and other crimes.

Michael Alexander Dillard, 48, pleaded guilty in Chickasaw County Circuit Court and received 20 years on the assault and 30 years for kidnapping and sexual assault. Ten years were suspended, leaving 20 to serve.

He was sentenced as a habitual offender, meaning he’ll have to serve almost every day of the sentence. His projected release date is September 2030.
