Former Farmington Volunteer Fire Department Chief David Boren was ordered Thursday by an Alcorn County judge to pay more than $103,000 in restitution to the fire department for an embezzlement charge.

Boren, 48, of Corinth, pleaded guilty to embezzlement, but the court withheld acceptance of the guilty plea and adjudication of guilt.

Boren’s case is being handled under the “non-adjudication” process, which allows causes to be dismissed upon successful completion of the court’s conditions, which include paying restitution to the fire department and five years of probation.

He was ordered to immediately pay $50,000 to the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department. The remaining $53,629 was ordered to be paid at a rate of at least $893 per month.

Alcorn County Circuit Court Judge Jim Pounds made the order.

Boren was charged with insurance fraud and embezzlement in a two-count indictment in April of 2017.

Boren’s embezzlement-related activities occurred between Jan. 1, 2010, and Oct. 31, 2016, and involved property or money that had been “entrusted to his care or possession” as a member of the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department, the indictment charged.

As part of Boren’s guilty plea, the insurance fraud charge was dismissed.
