Ex-Hancock Bank staffers doing time for stealing

OCEAN SPRINGS — Two former employees of Hancock Bank’s main branch in Ocean Springs are now in the minimum-security sections of prisons in Florida, each serving an 8 1/2 year sentence for their roles in a multimillion-dollar embezzlement scheme.

The Sun Herald reports Margaret Migues, former branch operations manager, is at Coleman Federal Correctional Complex about 50 miles northwest of Orlando.

Willie Doris Burney, a former teller, is at the Federal Correctional Institution in Marianna, Fla.

In October, a federal judge sentenced the women to jail time and three years of post-release supervision, and ordered them to pay $3.4 million in restitution.
