On Monday, Vincenta Linda Barrios was set to be sentenced for stealing $10,000 from the Goshen High School Band, but now the case is back to square one because band leaders allege she actually took a considerably larger amount of money from the band.

Vincenta Linda Barrios pleaded guilty last month to stealing $10,000, but she wasn't sentenced today because the judge said she didn't pay back the cash she promised by the deadline to satisfy her plea deal.

Meantime, officials with the Goshen High School Band testified, saying she actually stole more than $40,000.

Barrios pleaded not guilty to stealing the cash. She will be back in court on January 24th.
