Former State Senator Tommy Robertson sentenced to 10 years for embezzlement. 

Former state Sen. Tommy Robertson was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison, with two years to serve, for embezzling $379,594 of a $484,000 construction loan that he was handling for a couple through Singing River Federal Credit Union.

Special Judge Richard McKenzie also ordered Robertson to serve eight years under post-release supervision, fined him $1,000 and ordered him to pay $60,000 in restitution.

District Attorney Tony Lawrence pointed out the restitution was less than expected because the bank received insurance money to cover a portion of the loss. In addition, he said, Robertson had also already paid about $16,000 of what was owed.
