Attorney General Jim Hood announced that a former office manager at a Meridian nursing home now faces 70 years in prison for stealing money from nursing home residents and the facility.
Christy Moulds, 39, surrendered to authorities Monday, April 11th and was booked into the Lauderdale County jail on a seven-count indictment. A Lauderdale County grand jury charged her with six felony counts of exploitation of a vulnerable person and one felony count of embezzlement.
The indictment states she stole more than $250 from each account of six different patients by falsifying Trust Fund Cash Request Forms. Under the embezzlement charge, the indictment states that she took between $5,000 and $25,000 from the nursing home’s Resident Trust Account. If convicted, Moulds faces 10 years for each count of exploitation and 10 years for embezzlement. She also faces up to $35,000 in fines.
