Former Mississippi Court Worker Pleads Guilty To $100K Embezzlement

Terry Ann Swatsenberg, 46, of Southaven, Mississippi, plead guilty yesterday to charges she embezzled more than $100,000 from the City of Southaven, where she had been employed as municipal court clerk. Swatsenberg is alleged to have misappropriated monies from court fines and other fees that she handled for the court. She is alleged to have stolen the funds over a period of approximately one and a half years between 2006 and 2008. Swatsenberg was originally arrested in December of 2008 and it was believed at the time that the embezzlement was far less. Now authorities believe that the loss from her thefts "runs well into six figures."
