GULFPORT — A former Hancock Bank auditor is set for trial on a bank fraud charge alleging she converted checks for collections to money orders for personal use and forged her daughter’s name on some of them.
The Sun Herald reports 45-year-old Lisa Brooks of Gulfport pleaded not guilty yesterday before U.S. Magistrate Robert Walker.
He set trial for Sept. 6.
A federal indictment alleges Brooks defrauded the bank of an unspecified amount of money between October 2006 and October 2008 while she worked in Hancock Bank’s recoveries department in Long Beach.
Brooks is free on a $25,000 appearance bond.
Her attorney, Jim Davis, said Brooks looks forward to her day in court.
