JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Attorney General Jim Hood says a Gulfport woman has been convicted of operating a personal care home without a license.
A news release from Hood's office says Harrison County Justice Court Judge Melvin J. Ray on Dec. 16 found Mary Coleman guilty of 2 counts of operating a home for the aged or infirm without a license.
Authorities say Coleman operated two unlicensed homes in Gulfport.
The release says Ray ordered Coleman to pay the maximum fine allowed under the statute, $1,000, as well as requiring that she pay court costs for a total of $1,324.
