An ex-Alcorn County supervisor was recently sent to the Technical Violation Center at Delta Correctional Facility in Greenwood for 90 days, according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Jimmy Dallan Nelms, also known as “Dal,” the ex-Alcorn County supervisor, was arrested by Corinth Police on July 27 and charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, police have said.
Nelms, 46, was convicted of embezzlement almost three years ago. He was released from prison about four months ago and was on parole.
“The Parole Board found that he violated the condition (s) of his release with the pending felony charge (s),” MDOC said in a statement Thursday. “He had a revocation hearing on Aug. 9, 2018 and was subsequently sent to the TVC.”
Corinth Police arrested Nelms in July after his name was seen during a routine check of pawnshop records, Detective Sgt. Jerry Rogers has said. The records showed that Nelms took at least two guns to a pawnshop and exchanged them for money, according to Rogers.
Nelms was sentenced to prison in September of 2015 and ordered to pay more than $308,000 in restitution to Alcorn County.
Nelms was initially charged with 156 criminal counts including embezzlement by a public official making false representation to defraud the government, fraudulently obtaining public funds, forgery, and conspiracy, according to the state auditor’s office.
