Keenum sentenced to 22 months for bank fraud
Published: January 3,2012
BOONEVILLE — Once prominent attorney Thomas D. Keenum Sr. of Booneville has been sentenced to 22 months for federal bank fraud.
The 73-year-old Keenum pleaded guilty in August 2010 to a scheme to defraud BancorpSouth of Booneville through a $135,447 loan.
He faced up to 30 years in prison and $1 million in fines.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports Keenum is scheduled to report to prison Feb. 27. He remains free on bond until then.
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.
