Mayor’s embezzlement trial set for April

SOUTHAVEN — An April trial date has been set for Southaven Mayor Greg Davis, who is accused of embezzlement and false pretense. A DeSoto County grand jury indicted Davis last month.

The Commercial Appeal reports the three-count indictment accuses the 46-year-old Davis of embezzlement by a public official linked to his city-leased vehicle and using city gasoline in his personal vehicle.

Davis also faces a charge of false pretense involving a $1,000 check he received from the city for a donation intended for the Bully Bloc, a political action committee at Mississippi State University. Investigators say the PAC never received the donation.

Davis remains free on a $3,500 bond until his trial, which is scheduled for April 30 in Hernando. A plea date has been set for April 8.
