Ex-bookkeeper gets jail time for embezzlement

GULFPORT — A former bookkeeper will serve two years in prison for embezzling a little more than $135,000 from a Gulfport law firm.

The Sun Herald reports that Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois gave Heather Denise Parker the maximum penalty of 10 years Monday and suspended eight, leaving two to serve. He also ordered restitution.

Prosecutors say once Parker serves her time, she will be brought before the judge for an order on how to repay the money.

She had been free on bond since Dec. 6, when she pleaded guilty in Harrison County Circuit Court.
