Former Virginia PTA Officer Pleads Guilty to Embezzlement

Posted: Jan 18, 2018 9:43 PM Updated:

ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) - A former Eastern Shore of Virginia PTA officer has pleaded guilty to two counts of embezzlement as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Sentencing guidelines call for probation as 37-year-old Jennifer Stapleton had no previous criminal record. She'll be sentenced at a later date.

Commonwealth Attorney Spencer Morgan said in court Wednesday that Stapleton owes more than $6,000. But, Stapleton will only have to pay $5,000 restitution over the next six months as part of the plea agreement.

Morgan says Kegotank Elementary School PTA members approached an Accomack County Sheriff's deputy in November 2016 after encountering irregularities in the PTA's finances.

Prosecutors listed 11 incidents of unreported purchases made using a school debit card, for which receipts weren't submitted.

It's unclear if Stapleton has an attorney.
