JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A former deputy tax collector for Tallahatchie County has pleaded guilty to embezzlement and has been sentenced to 18 months of supervised probation.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering, in a news release Tuesday, said Deltra Young also was served in February with a formal demand for $19,486.79. Pickering says his office has already returned the amount of embezzled funds to the county from Young’s bond.

Young was the deputy tax collector for the county from 2007 until 2014.
