Oxford Deputy City Clerk indicted for embezzlement
OXFORD, Miss. –Oxford’s Deputy City Clerk has been indicted on one count of embezzlement.
Alisa Diggins has been booked and released on a $5,000 bond.
Liggins, 46, is accused of embezzling $12,703.50 over the course of several months in 2012 from the City of Oxford.
State Auditor Stacey Pickering said Liggins took City Court receipts then attempted to hide the embezzlement by delaying General Ledger entries, bank deposits and using future receipts to balance General Ledger entries.
“Ms. Liggins stole from the taxpayers of Oxford and she will be held accountable for her actions,” Auditor Pickering said. “I thank our Special Agents, the Oxford Police Department and District Attorney Ben Creekmore for their hard work on this case.”
Liggins has worked as a Deputy Clerk for the Oxford City Clerk’s Office since 2005.
