Ex-school officer accused of stealing

BAY ST. LOUIS — A former finance manager for the Bay-Waveland School District will stand trial Aug. 16 in Hancock County Circuit Court on an embezzlement charge.

Linda Gavagnie is accused of embezzling more than $22,000 by making false entries into financial records of the school and transferring funds into accounts to hide the money.

Gavagnie was finance manager for the Bay-Waveland School District from Jan. 1994 until her resignation Sept. 21, 2007.

Prosecutors say the embezzlement dated back to 2002.
