Man will Plead Guilty to Defrauding the Government

UNDATED, Miss. (WCBI)–A man is indicted and will plead guilty to defrauding the Federal Emergency Management Agency.  62 year-old James W. Pulliam of Mansfield, Texas claimed that a house that was damaged in Houston, Mississippi was his primary residence and it was not.  Court records say he applied for an amount that was more than $1,000.  Residents in the area were allowed to seek assistance after a disaster declaration was made in response to an outbreak of tornados that tore across the South last April (4-11).  His trial is set for October 10, 2012  in Oxford.
