Hinds County Sheriff’s Deputy in hot water for forgery

JACKSON, Miss. – A former Hinds County deputy sheriff is charged with exploiting a vulnerable person and committing forgery.
In a statement issued by Attorney General Jim Hoods office, Alice Holly, 55, of Jackson, was indicted by a Hinds County Grand Jury for one count of exploitation of a vulnerable person and one count of forgery. Holly has been booked into the Hinds County Jail and released on a $10,000 bond.

The indictment accused Holly of closing the victim’s bank account and transferring more than $5,000 to her personal account. While the victim was in a behavioral center, Holly allegedly had the victim sign over power of attorney to her. Holly is accused of then using that power to execute a quitclaim deed to transfer the victim’s property into her own name, and then selling it and keeping the proceeds for herself.

In addition, Holly is accused of forging the signature of a second victim on a change-of-ownership form for a life insurance policy and making herself the beneficiary of the policy.
If convicted of exploitation, Holly faces up to 10 years in prison. She faces up to 15 years in prison for the forgery count.
