Catledge's prison time in Pensacola

By Patsy Brumfield/Daily Journal

TUPELO – William Catledge of Tupelo will serve his 35-month prison sentence in a Pensacola, Fla., federal facility.

The decision comes from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons after the former attorney’s guilty plea Nov. 9 to an indictment and an information accusing him of income tax evasion and mail fraud.

He’ll turn himself in. He’s also been ordered to pay restitution of $731,732 to the Internal Revenue Service and $182,430 to a Texas insurance company.

Prior to his pleas, he gave up his law license.
