In the past, students at Walnut Grove Elementary School in Southlake, TX, paid cash for supplies and various school activities. But some of the funds were never accounted for.
Officials in the Carroll school district performed a five-year audit going back to 2011. They found several discrepancies in the cash account and deposit slips.
The discrepancies occurred from Sept. 1, 2011, until May 30, 2015, records state. That money was collected by Donna Feuchter, an assistant to the principal. “There’s no records on how it was spent,” said Sam Jordan, a spokeswoman with the Tarrant County criminal district attorney’s office.
Feuchter, 58, was sentenced to three years deferred adjudication probation on a charge of theft of property $20,000 to $100,000. She also was ordered to pay $47,034.79 in restitution, which she did on March 9 when she entered her plea. As part of a plea agreement, Feuchter pleaded no contest to the charge, a felony that carries up to 20 years in prison. She has also been ordered to complete a theft intervention and prevention program.
