SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A former Mishawaka PTA Council president accused of felony theft appeared in court Wednesday.
Forty-two-year-old Chasity Edmonson 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 dollars but still owes nearly $9,000.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 15.
