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.
