Sentencing of ex-bank employees postponed

GULFPORT — Sentencing has been reset for Oct. 12 in U.S. District Court for two former employees of Hancock Bank’s Ocean Springs main branch in a multimillion-dollar embezzlement scheme to defraud the bank branch.

Margaret Migues, former branch operations manager at the Hancock Bank main branch in Ocean Springs, and Doris Burney, a former teller there, initially were scheduled for sentencing this month.

The conspiracy, which officials have said grew to include two other former employees, who have not yet been identified, started in 1982 and continued through July 2009.

The Sun Herald reports Migues and Burney each face a maximum sentence of 30 years and up to a $1 million fine.
