A woman who confessed to one of the largest embezzlement schemes in Houston County history could soon be out of prison after spending less than eight-months behind bars.
Sixty-four-year-old Grace White pled guilty in February to 27 counts of theft of property.
She was accused of stealing more than $400,000 from the Wiregrass Gin Company where she worked.
Judge Larry Anderson sentenced white to 20-years in prison and she started serving her time in April.
But in June, the state prison system tried to put White in a work release program.
District Attorney Doug Valeska blocked that move.
But now he says White is already being considered for parole and could soon be a free woman.
Valeska says he'll personally argue against White's release during a hearing before the State Parole Board Dec. 18.
