SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A former Mishawaka PTA Council president accused of felony theft appeared in court Tuesday.

Chasity Edmonson, 42, is accused of embezzling more than $20,000. She told police she used the cash to pay for her kids' activities and her own personal bills because she was going through a rough time.

Court documents indicate she has since repaid some $11,000 but still owes nearly $9,000.

Edmonson will be back in court on Nov. 20.
