Vicksburg mayor's wages garnished

Posted: Updated:

VICKSBURG, MS (WLBT) - The wages of Vicksburg's mayor are being garnished due to an alleged debt at a Jackson hospital.

A Hinds County judge ordered Mayor Paul Winfield's city paycheck garnished to pay St. Dominic. Winfield said the debt stemmed from his insurance company's refusal to pay charges from a visit in July 2006.

The mayor is also an attorney and filed a motion asking the court to lift the garnishment order.

The judge will review the mayor's pleading.
