RIDGELAND — The Secretary of State’s Office has ordered the Fine Arts Institute of Mississippi to stop soliciting money in the state and fined the group and executive director Billy Murphy $25,000 each.

According to The Clarion Ledger, the $50,000 in fines are to be paid within 30 days of the order.

The Ridgeland-based charity operated Boxcar Bingo in Olive Branch — FAIM’s primary funding source — until the state Mississippi Gaming Commission shut down the operation for reasons very similar to those raised in the Secretary of State Office’s investigation.
