Embezzlement Suspect to Be in Court Wednesday

A Muldrow woman’s future may be decided at a hearing set for Wednesday in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw.

Carolyn Louise Hignite, 45, was arrested March 27 for the embezzlement of $427,699 from her employer, Anchor Financial Services in Roland. Her next scheduled court appearance is on Wednesday before Judge Kyle Waters on his felony disposition docket. At that time it will be determined if attorneys are ready to go to trial.

Hignite is free on a $5,000 bond. She was released March 28.

Hignite’s arrest resulted from an investigation by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI). Anchor Financial Services reported the alleged embezzlement to the Sequoyah County District Attorney, who requested the OSBI investigate the case.
