Ex-insurance agent gets jail time, probation
HERNANDO — A former Olive Branch insurance agent has been sentenced after entering an open plea to charges he converted premium payments to his personal use.
The Attorney General’s Office says Eric Jerome Boone’s open plea meant that he refused to accept the state’s recommended sentence and threw himself on the mercy of the court.
DeSoto County Circuit Judge Robert Chamberlain Tuesday sentenced Boone to five years in prison to be followed by two years supervised probation.
Attorney General Jim Hood says Boone collected premium payments in the amount of $3,452.40 and failed to deposit them, using them instead for his own use.
