HOLLY SPRINGS – A Marshall County woman was ordered to jail on Thursday after a jury found her guilty of attempted false pretense.
Sweetie B. Wooten, 38, of Holly Springs was convicted Wednesday by a jury in DeSoto County Circuit Court.
Judge Robert Chamberlin sentenced Wooten to 10 years, eight years suspended and two years to serve followed by five years of post release supervision. She must also pay $500 dollars in court costs and was ordered to report to the Desoto County jail today.
Wooten was arrested last August by investigators with the Public Integrity Division of the Attorney General’s Office. At the time of the crime, Wooten was employed at the Marshall County Public Defender’s office. She is also a licensed bonding agent. She promised to make a criminal case disappear for money.
