Jackson Man Arrested for Embezzling More than $100,000


A Jackson man was arrested Friday for alleged felony embezzlement of more than $100,000 from the victim, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.


Cuyler Arlin Dodson (AKA: C.A. Dodson), 65, of Jackson, was arrested Friday following a search warrant by investigators with the Attorney General’s Office. Dodson was charged with nine counts of felony embezzlement.


Dodson was allegedly using his position as a CPA to embezzle money from his clients. Dodson is accused of using the trust that he had built with a client in order to gain access to her checking accounts for the reason that he was handling her expenses.  Following a disagreement between her and Dodson, the victim discovered Dodson’s scheme when she requested bank statements from her financial institution and said statements did not match payments recorded by Dodson.


Dodson was booked into the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond. If convicted, Dodson faces up to 60 years in prison and up to $105,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.


This case was investigated by Bo Luckey with the AG’s Consumer Protection Division and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Patrick Beasley.
