A former Marks city clerk has been taken into custody after being accused of embezzling payments made to the city for nearly four years.
According to the State Auditor’s Office, Pamela McNutt allegedly stole funds made to the city’s water and sewage, court fines, and privileged license payments from November 2017 to April 2021.
McNutt was served with a $282,714 demand letter at the time of her arrest and currently faces up to 20 years and $5,000 in fines if convicted.
“When our investigators have good prosecutors to work with, we are able to stop public corruption together and send the message that there is zero tolerance for theft of public funds,” State Auditor Shad White said.
A $50,000 surety bond covers McNutt’s employment for the city of Marks. McNutt will remain liable for the full amount of the demand in addition to criminal proceedings.
