TUPELO — State Rep. Brian Aldridge and his parents pleaded not guilty to charges that they took property from a relative and converted it to their personal use.
Brian Aldridge, a 36-year-old Republican from Tupelo, has been charged with one count of grand larceny.
Aldridge’s father, Louis Aldridge, 64, is charged with three counts embezzlement and his mother Janice Aldridge, 61, is charged with two counts of embezzlement. The couple is divorced.
If convicted, each defendant faces up to 10 years in prison per each count.
