Ex-school, city employee gets prison time for embezzlement

MEADVILLE — A 52-year-old Roxie woman has been sentenced to three years in prison for embezzling money while she was employed by the Franklin County School District and the Town of Roxie.

The Natchez Democrat reports Circuit Court Judge Forrest “Al” Johnson sentenced Ramona Mullins to serve nine years, with six years suspended, followed by three years of post-release supervision for two counts of embezzlement by a public employee.

Johnson also ordered Mullins to pay over $77,000 in restitution to the Franklin County School District, near $17,000 to the Town of Roxie and over $16,000 to the Mississippi State Auditor’s office.

Mullins entered an open plea of guilty, meaning she refused to accept the recommendation of the state and instead threw herself at the mercy of the court.
