Ashley Massengill Grayson and her husband Joshua Grayson have been charged with racketeering and murder under the RICO Act of 1970. This is an extremely serious charge and many expect the pair to spend a significant amount of time behind bars due to the difficulty of beating RICO charges without a skilled attorney.
The news of the charges against the couple comes as a shock, especially after Ashley Massengill Grayson made headlines in September 2020 when she claimed to have made a million dollars in less than an hour. Unfortunately, these claims of wealth were soon after disputed by a woman named Sherell who alleged that Massengill Grayson had scammed her out of $2,000 and her million-dollar claim was an exaggeration. Allegations of other scams by the couple began to come to light as well. Massengill Grayson later confirmed that her wealth had actually come from a worker's compensation settlement after she had lost a finger in an assembly line accident.
The legal issues do not end here. On April 4, 2023 Ashley Massengill Grayson petitioned the United States District Court in Oxford Mississippi to dismiss a defamation lawsuit brought by Derricka Harwell. Harwell had been informed by the FBI that Massengill Grayson had attempted to hire a contract killer to murder her. In response, the FBI had placed Harwell under their protection, moving her away from her home. Harwell claimed that Massengill Grayson had sent her harassing and threatening messages on Facebook Messenger, attempted to doxx her, and was now attempting to sue her and other victims of the alleged murder-for-hire plot for defamation in an attempt to cover up the investigation.
The court ruled that there was no merit for Grayson’s motion to dismiss Harwell’s suit. They found that the two sides presented such opposing stories that it would be up to a jury to decide who was telling the truth. The court stated that “it rather strongly appears that they [the competing allegations] do”. It is now up to the jury to decide who is lying and who is telling the truth.
