Authorities have recovered almost $500,000 embezzled by former Jackson County Chancery Clerk Lynn Presley.
Presley pleaded guilty in 1999 to federal charges of conspiring to steal public money and conspiring to launder money. Authorities say Presley may have stolen more than $2 million from the county. Investigators have confirmed that at least $500,000 of that money has been returned to Jackson County.
The F-B-I and the state auditor's office will present a check for nearly $60,000 to Chancery Clerk Terry Miller on Monday.
Presley was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 1998 on state charges and will be eligible for parole in 2006. In 1999, Presley was sentenced to 34 months in prison on the federal charges, but he is serving that time concurrently with his state sentence.
