Date set for Keenum’s sentence in bank fraud case

Once prominent attorney Thomas D. Keenum Sr. will be sentenced Dec. 30 for federal bank fraud.
The 71-year-old Keenum pleaded guilty in August 2010 to a scheme to defraud BancorpSouth of Booneville through a $135,447 loan.
He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1 million in fines.
Keenum’s sentencing was delayed more than two years by a personal bankruptcy filing and difficulties in determining the total amount of the fraud, which has a bearing on guidelines presented to the judge.
U.S. District Judge W. Allen Pepper Jr. will sentence him in Greenville.
