Correction to story in last week’s newspaper
There was a mistake in a press release from the State Attorney General’s Office that was printed on page 1 of last week’s South Reporter.
A Marshall County woman who was convicted of attempted false pretense recently by a jury in DeSoto County Circuit Court had not been employed with the Marshall County Public Defender’s Office.
At the time of the crime, Sweetie B. Wooten, 38, of Holly Springs, falsely claimed she was employed at the Marshall County Public Defender’s office, according to the State Attorney General’s Office.
