Hinds County Judge LaRita Cooper Stokes was hospitalized in Houston, TX last night due to an erratic heart beat. She did not have a heart attack or a stroke. She will remain there in the hospital until her condition improves. She and her husband, City Councilman Kenneth I. Stokes, were in Houston attending a conference. The family is asking for prayer.

Thank the Lord and all those who prayed for Judge LaRita Cooper-Stokes. She was released from the hospital in Houston, TX Wednesday and will return to Jackson tomorrow mid-day. She will follow up with her local physician on Friday. Judge Stokes will need approximately two weeks of bed rest before returning to her duties at Hinds County.
