Authorities arrest Natchez man on embezzlement charge

 (The following is a press release from the Mississippi Attorney General's office.)

A Natchez resident is facing embezzlement charges following indictment by an Adams County Grand Jury, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Charles Nations, age 42, of Natchez, was arrested Monday following indictment by  an Adams County Grand Jury on one count of embezzlement by a public employee. The indictment alleges that Nations, while serving as the Director of the Adams County Juvenile Justice center, embezzled over $100,000.00 from bank accounts that belonged to the Adams County Juvenile Detention Center.  Nations will be arraigned Wednesday morning in Adams County.

If convicted, Nations faces up to 20 years behind bars and a $5,000 fine.  As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This case was investigated by Roger Cribb of the Attorney Generals Public Integrity Division and will be prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stan Alexander.
