BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

On Tuesday, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said Alexis Hampton, 27, of D'Iberville is facing charges of two counts of exploitation of a vulnerable person.

Hampton was an employee at Lemoyne Place Assisted Living Facility in Biloxi, Hood said.

After an indictment by a Harrison County grand jury, investigators with the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit arrested Hampton. That indictment states Hampton, while working as an employee of the Lemoyne Place Assisted Living facility in Biloxi, allegedly withdrew more than $600 from the 69-year-old alleged victim's bank account without authorization.

Hampton is being held at Harrison County Detention Center. If convicted, she could faces up to 10 years behind bars for each count. 
 
Hood said, this case is being investigated by Jamie Patrick and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Myrick Jackson of the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
