One charged with stealing, another pleads guilty
OCEAN SPRINGS and JACKSON — In two separate, unrelated cases, one former bank employee has been charged with embezzlement while a second pleaded guilty to the same charge.
Court records didn’t say how much money 52-year-old Margaret Migues allegedly stole between 1980 and 2009 while working at Hancock Bank in Ocean Springs.
Migues is charged with embezzlement in U.S. District in a one-count criminal bill of information, which is often filed by prosecutors when a defendant agrees to waive grand jury indictment and plead guilty.
Karen Sue Smith worked as a teller at Regions Bank in Jackson from 2003-2006. She admitted in court March 4 she would take cash from her drawer, then create false credit and debit tickets to cover her theft.
Smith is scheduled to be sentenced May 13. She faces a maximum of 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
