WIGGINS, MS -- A grand jury has indicted a former Oklahoma state senator accused of stealing thousands of dollars.

The Mississippi State Auditor's Office says Gumm stole $24,000 from the Stone County Economic Partnership by depositing money and checks into his personal account.

Gumm served two terms as state senator for the Durant area from 2002 to 2010. He is out on $20,000 bond while awaiting trial.
