Mississippi woman surrenders in theft case

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 34-year-old Mississippi woman has surrendered to authorities after being accused of taking money from a vulnerable person.

Attorney General Jim Hood, in a news release Tuesday, said Devina Williamson, of Columbia, faces one count of exploitation of a vulnerable adult for making more than $250 in debit card purchases for herself from the victim's account. She was arrested Friday and processed at the Marion/Walthall Correctional Facility. Bond was set at $10,000. It was unknown if she is represented by an attorney.

If convicted, Williamson faces up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
