State Auditor Says Coahoma County Owes State Money

COAHOMA COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Coahoma County is one of four jurisdictions in Mississippi that have been warned by the State Auditor to pay delinquent court assessment fees. Court assessment fees collected from misdemeanor offenses and traffic violations are required by law to be deposited with the state treasurer every month, but Coahoma County and the towns of Shaw, Raleigh and Tchula each owe between $14,000 and $69,000 in court assessment fees to the state. On Monday State Auditor Stacey Pickering told the four governments that they will receive formal demands if they payments are not made within 30 days.
