Businessman Indicted in Plot for Hire
A Jackson businessman accused of hiring someone to hurt his ex-wife’s divorce attorney has been indicted. Monday, a Madison County grand jury indicted Patrick McCollum, 49, on a charge of solicitation to commit aggravated assault. Investigators say McCollum paid an undercover officer in February of this year to “break every bone” in attorney Harold Johnson’s body. They say McCollum’s motive stemmed from a change in his child support payments.
