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.
