Former Springfield PTA Leader Pleads to Theft
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - A former Springfield PTA leader has pleaded guilty to stealing as part of a tentative plea agreement.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that 30-year-old Jordan Lyndsay Joy-Peck faced two counts of felony stealing in the theft of at least $500 from both the Wanda Gray Elementary PTA and the school's Girl Scouts troop. The total amount she's accused of stealing has not been disclosed.
Joy-Peck pleaded guilty to one count of felony stealing Monday. Under the plea agreement, she could be placed on probation or given a suspended sentence. It also calls for her to pay restitution of about $2,500 to the PTA.
If convicted, she faced up to seven years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 on each count.
Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 26.
