NEW AUGUSTA — Emily Holder, former city clerk for the town of New Augusta, has pleaded guilty to embezzlement and two counts of forgery.

The State Auditor’s Office says the 44-year-old Holder was charged with embezzling over $53,000 from the city by writing checks to herself and forging the mayor’s signature.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering tells The Hattiesburg American that Holder will serve one year of house arrest and must pay restitution to the town.

Holder, a resident of Petal, resigned June 18, 2009.
