Mayor of Aberdeen, Miss. to go on trial for embezzlement in February 2021

ABERDEEN, Miss. (WCBI) – City of Aberdeen Mayor Maurice Howard will go to trial next year.

A continuance was granted to push Howard’s embezzlement trial to February 1, 2021.

The recently re-elected mayor was indicted in October 2019 on five counts of embezzlement.

He’s accused of receiving about $3500 dollars in taxpayer-funded reimbursements for city-related trips.

The state auditor’s office accuses Howard of not going on those trips.

Howard’s original trial was set to begin December 14th but his attorney was disbarred.
