State Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps and Rankin County School Board President Cecil McCrory will be arraigned in federal court today on a 49-count federal indictment.

Epps has abruptly resigned amid a federal investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office has moved to seize his $359,000 Flowood home, his beachfront condo in Pass Christian and two Mercedes Benz sedans.

Epps resigned his $132,700-a-year government job on Wednesday, with a brief letter to Gov. Phil Bryant.

McCrory also abruptly resigned his school board post on Wednesday. McCrory is listed as an owner of companies that have done business with the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
