LEXINGTON — Holmes County Supervisor Norman Cobbins has been indicted by a federal grand jury for mail fraud, bribery and making a false statement.
U.S. Attorney John Dowdy and others said the indictment alleges that the 61-year-old Cobbins, of Lexington, from January 2002 through January 2011, carried out a scheme to defraud the county by submitting false invoices and requisitions to the county and converting the money to his own personal use.
If convicted, Dowdy says Cobbins faces up to 35 years in prison and a $750,000 fine.
