Knox pleaded guilty in 2010 to mail fraud. Prosecutors say the owner of Weaverville-based If It's Water and More billed customers between 2005 and 2010 for water sample collection services that were not performed.
In 1998, Knox paid a fine and did community service after pleading guilty to misconduct by a public official after she was charged with embezzling more than $10,000 from Marshal when she served as town clerk there. The newspaper says Knox also faces conspiracy charges in Madison County.
