ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — The former treasurer of a PTA group in Maryland’s largest school system has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors following an investigation into the alleged embezzlement of PTA funds.
Online court records indicate that a plea agreement by 47-year-old Lisa Betts of Silver Spring was filed last week, the same day that a criminal information charging her with misdemeanor embezzlement was docketed.
Betts is schedule to appear in court on Nov. 17.
Betts is suspected of embezzling almost $40,000 from the Montgomery County Council of PTAs, which represents more than 190 local parent-teacher associations.
