ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) -- The former manager of the North Lee Water Association has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of falsifying water samples.
Dan Durham, 66, waived indictment and entered a guilty plea in U. S. District Court in Aberdeen Wednesday afternoon.
The water district was required to provide samples from wells across the association to the Mississippi State Department of Health for testing.
The federal charge accuses Durham of having the sample drawn from one well, but submitted as being taken system wide.
Durham will be sentenced at a later date.
