OXFORD — A deputy city clerk in Oxford has been indicted on charges she embezzled more than $12,700 from Lafayette County Justice Court receipts in 2012.
State Auditor Stacey Pickering says in a news release that 46-year-old Alisa Liggins was released on $5,000 bond after she was booked at the sheriff’s department.
Pickering says Liggins has been a deputy in the Oxford City Clerk’s office since 2005.
Pickering says Liggins allegedly embezzled $12,703 over several months in 2012 by taking justice court receipts and trying to conceal the missing money by delaying general ledger entries and bank deposits.
Pickering says she allegedly used future receipts to balance the ledger.
