Man accused of stealing bowling money to get intervention
Published: March 15,2013
HERNANDO — A Mississippi businessman, accused of embezzling prize money from bowling leagues at the Southaven bowling center he owns, will go through pretrial intervention. It’s a program for first-time nonviolent offenders, instead of going to trial.
The Commercial Appeal reports 71-year-old Tommy Hart must repay the nearly $47,000 in prize money to the four bowling leagues at his Cotton Bowl Lanes Bowling Center before he can begin the pretrial program.
His trial date was set for Monday.
Hart must follow all the rules of the two-year program, including monthly check-ins with the program’s intervention officer. If he fails to meet any of the program’s rules, he will be brought up for prosecution by the DeSoto County District Attorney’s office.
