Jackson man stand trial on "kickback" scheme

Jason Mitchell of Jackson will stand trial today on charges he was involved in a "kickback" scheme that pocketed more than $500,000 into a fraudulent account for him and a business colleague. Mitchell, a former employee at DeWitt Company, teamed with Rajiv Toprani of Clarksville, Tennessee, between 2007 and 2010 to purchase materials for DeWitt at a price they agreed on. The two would share a percentage of the purchase price and put it into the fraudulent account. DeWitt filed petitions asking Mitchell and Toprani, who has his charges dropped in exchange for testimony against Mitchell, to pay back the $500,000.
