LEAKE COUNTY — State Auditor Stacey Pickering reports Renodda Dorman, former Leake County Chamber of Commerce executive director, has been sentenced to 10 years, five years to serve and five years of probation, after pleading guilty to embezzlement.
Dorman was also ordered to make $60,916.11 in restitution back to Leake County.
The joint investigation by District Attorney Mark Duncan, Leake County Sheriff’s Office, Carthage Police Department and the State Auditor’s Office determined the embezzlement took place between 2008 and 2010.
Dorman was arrested in July 2011 after a seven-month investigation. She had been employed as the executive director of the Chamber since 2001.
“Renodda Dorman pled guilty to embezzlement following an investigation that showed she wrote unauthorized checks to herself for additional salary she was not authorized to receive. In addition to checks written to herself, Dorman also wrote checks to cover personal bills such as cable television and cell phone payments,” said Pickering.
