FLOWOOD, MISS– One day after the sentencing of former Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Christopher Epps was put off until May, he was arrested and charged with burglary charges.

Epps pleaded guilty to those schemes in 2015 and faces up to 23 years in prison, plus forfeiting $1.7 million in assets.
