Mayor’s trial for embezzlement to begin after elections
Published: April 16,2013
HERNANDO — Southaven Mayor Greg Davis’ trial for embezzlement and false pretense has been scheduled for Aug. 19, more than two months after local municipal elections.
The Commercial Appeal reports prosecutors and the defense agreed to the date.
Davis was indicted by a DeSoto County grand jury in December. The indictment accuses Davis of embezzlement by a public official linked to his city-leased vehicle and using city gasoline in his personal vehicle.
The false pretense count involves a $1,000 check Davis received from the city for a donation intended for the Bully Bloc, a political action committee at his alma mater, Mississippi State University. Prosecutors say the PAC never received the donation.
Davis has pleaded not guilty.
Davis is seeking re-election as an independent in the June 7 general election.
