Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
This sweet little old woman Mary Hixon, 91, charged with theft of property for over $200,000 from the small City of River Falls, Alabama where she had been the mayor of for over three decades.
The citizens of the city stated, they suspected something was going on but kept quite on it because she appeared to be the proverbial little old lady.
In reading the article it was unclear to me if the ex-mayor was being manipulated by family members and a man half her age that was living with her. You can read the article in full: www.CrimeDivas.com, on the Divas news page In exchange for her plead of guilty a more serious crime was dropped. The Judge had mercy due to her age and Ms. Hixon was sentenced to ten years, but it was suspended for 5 years of supervised probation.
Based on the article it seems as if Ms. Hixon was a sweet and helpful old woman, but extended herself too much to help others and whose legal authority and outdated procedures may have gotten her into this situation.
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
