DA's office receives complaint against Jessie Haynes

The Jefferson County District Attorney's office has received the case involving a complaint against Beaumont Independent School District communications director Jessie Haynes.

BISD board member Mike Neil filed the complaint against Haynes, accusing her of obstruction of a public passageway.  The charge is a Class B misdemeanor.

The August 1 incident was caught on district surveillance video.  Neil says Haynes tried to keep Neil and a reporter out of a room where a news conference was being held.

The DA's office has requested additional paperwork and photographs from BISD police.

DA investigator Tim Smith said once that information is gathered, the review will begin.

Prosecutors will then decide whether to file charges or not take the case.
