The West Orange Patch reports that the former president of a New Jersey elementary school PTA has been charged with stealing more than $100,000 from the parent-teacher organization. Deborah Sanchez, of West Orange, is accused of siphoning funds from an after-school program at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School that the PTA had administered. (The program is now run by another organization.)
Ms. Sanchez faces a Feb. 6 court date on the charges.
