VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Franklin O. Jackson will stand trial in August for allegedly passing bad checks.
The trial comes 10 years after he failed to show up in court for arraignment on the charges.
Circuit Judge M. James Chaney has set trial of Aug. 26 for the 56-year-old Jackson.
Jackson had been indicted by a Warren County grand jury in October 2000 for passing three bad checks at Harrah's Casino in 1999. Jackson remains in jail.
Vicksburg Police Capt. Bobby Stewart tells the Vicksburg Post Jackson was arrested in June on a drug charge. It was then a warrant from the district attorney's office on the back check was discovered.
Prosecutors say because Jackson was indicted within two years of passing the checks there is no statute of limitations.
