MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says a former employee of a state mental hospital has been indicted on one count of fondling a vulnerable person at the facility.
  
Hood says 27-year-old Kenneth Tanksley of Meridian turned himself in for arrest Friday.
  
Tanksley used to work at East Mississippi State Hospital, and he was indicted by a grand jury in Lauderdale County.
  
The docket at the Lauderdale County Jail shows Tanksley was released from the jail Friday on a $5,000 bond. It did not show whether he is represented by an attorney.
  
Conviction carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
