STARKVILLE, Miss. — A former Extension Service employee at Mississippi State University is charged with submitting more than $35,000 of duplicate travel expenses.
The State Auditor’s Office says Wednesday that 63-year-old Susan Holder has been indicted and turned herself in Friday at the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department. A jail employee says she was released the same day.
Auditor Stacey Pickering says Holder charged travel expenses on her personal credit card, and those were paid by a private foundation. He says she submitted the same expenses to the university and those were also paid.
Records show Holder turned in duplicate expenses of $35,497 from September 2007 through October 2011.
Holder worked for MSU from 1991 until she was fired Nov. 30, 2011.
County jail records don’t show whether she has an attorney. Holder used to live in Starkville but now lives in Pecos, Texas, a spokeswoman for the auditor’s office says.
