By Drew Moody
About five months ago, when two relatively high profile embezzlement

Mullins is accused of altering four bank deposits made at United Bank in

If found guilty Jennifer Lynn Mullins could face a jail term from 1 to
10 years for her crime. Mullins has made a statement to police in the case.
