The first of three trials in the $1.3 million Neshoba County overtime
scandal will begin Sept. 26 in Rankin County after specially-appointed
Circuit Court Judge William Barnett of Jackson granted change of venues
here last Wednesday but denied motions by the defense for some of the
indictments to be dismissed.
The three former county employees were indicted last year on seven counts of embezzlement while in public office.
