State auditor weighs in on Fairley indictment

State Auditor Stacey Pickering is explaining the details of the alleged fraud scheme that led to the indictment of Hattiesburg preacher Kenneth Fairley and Artie Fletcher…

…Pickering said the investigation is ongoing, and more indictments and the amount of money allegedly defrauded from the U.S., currently around $170,000 according to Pickering, could increase.

“As far as locally, you’re looking at other individuals that may have been part of this scheme or are the peripherals of it taking advantage of it that personally enriched themselves that should be held accountable,” Pickering said.
