CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - State officials say a fifth person has pleaded guilty in an Alcorn County public corruption case.

Joseph Lin McNair Jr., who’s a vendor with county contracts, pleaded guilty Wednesday to false representation to defraud government.

A news release from the state auditor’s office says McLin was sentenced to five years in state custody. He will spend one year under house arrest and four years under post-release supervision. He was ordered to pay $5,000 in fines and $632 in court costs.

A former supervisor, a former purchasing clerk and two other vendors pleaded guilty to corruption charges Tuesday.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering says those convicted were ordered to pay a total of more than $475,000 in restitution.
