Former Director of Nursing of Adams County Nursing Center Arrested for Embezzlement of Controlled Substance
Kimberly Lindsey, 41, of Natchez, has been arrested for alleged embezzlement of a controlled substance, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Lindsey recently turned herself in to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office following an indictment by the Adams County Grand Jury for one count of Embezzlement of a Controlled Substance.
An investigation by the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division uncovered that Lindsey is alleged to have embezzled Hydrocodone, a schedule two controlled substance, through her former employment as the Director of Nursing at the Adams County Nursing Center.
Following her arrest, Lindsey’s bond was set at $10,000. Her arraignment is scheduled for Thursday. If convicted of the charges against her, Lindsey faces up to five years behind bars and a $1,000 fine. As with all cases, the charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by Michael Stevens of the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Division with assistance from the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and Adams County Sheriff’s Office. The case will be prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stanley Alexander at the request of the Adams County District Attorney’s Office.
