DJ found guilty of groping Taylor Swift lands Mississippi radio job

David Mueller, the radio DJ found guilty of groping Taylor Swift, (pictured with you-know-who) has  received a new job co-hosting a morning show in Mississippi. Mueller, who previously went by the pseudonym "Jackson," will now appear on-air as "Stonewall Jackson" and co-host "Jackson and Jonbob" on 92.7 KIX.
 
Mueller's new boss, Delta Radio CEO Larry Fuss, defended his decision to hire the disgraced DJ saying, "I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it. He's either the world's best liar, or he's telling the truth. I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story."
 
Swift accused Mueller of reaching under her skirt and grabbing her backside during a backstage meet-and-greet in 2013. Mueller sued Swift in 2015 for $3 million, claiming the accusations were false and cost him his job at the Denver radio station, KYGO. Swift then countersued Mueller for assault and battery. Last August, a jury sided with Swift – who testified at the trial – and forced Mueller to pay the pop star a symbolic $1.
 
Fuss admitted that his decision to hire Mueller was "maybe a tiny bit" about the publicity such a controversial move would garner, but he insisted that his primary reason was that Mueller "sounds good" on the radio.
