Even PTAs get the government they deserve

From the RT-D:
Henrico County authorities are looking for the former president of the Arthur Ashe Elementary School PTA in connection with the suspected theft of about $20,000 from the organization.

Police have obtained multiple felony warrants for Victoria Jewel Gregory, 38, a previously convicted felon who served as the school's PTA president in 2003-2004, according to court papers.
So what was that felony? Oh, that's right:
Gregory pleaded guilty to a similar offense in April 1997 and was sentenced to serve three years in prison.

She was initially charged with eight counts of grand larceny and two counts of check forgery in September 1996, but as part of a plea agreement all but four of the charges were withdrawn.

She pleaded guilty to one count of check forgery and three counts of grand larceny. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison but all but three years were suspended for 20 years, according to court records.

It was unclear today whether PTA officials were aware of Gregory's criminal background when she was selected as president.
