Embezzlement Lands a Former Adams Co. Deputy in Prison for Ten Years

NATCHEZ, Miss.–A plea of guilty to embezzlement charges has landed Charles Nations, a former deputy with the Adams County Sheriff’s Dept. and former director of the Adams County juvenile justice center ten years in prison.

Nations pleaded guilty Thursday to the charges in Adams County Circuit Court, said Atty. Gen. Jim Hood.

Nations admitted to the judge that he stole $173,000 from the center while he worked there. He was ordered to pay it back, plus $1,000 to the state’s crime victims compensation fund.

“It hurts all of us in the law enforcement community when a law enforcement officer violates the law,” said Hood. “I hope the 10 year sentence Judge Johnson imposed will serve as a deterrent to other would be embezzlers.”

Nations will also be on probation for five years when he gets out. The original sentence was 15 years. Five were suspended.
