A woman will spend 60 days in jail for stealing $50,000 from a PTO. Kristi Duane was a treasurer of a PTO of Bloomsburg Memorial Elementary School in Columbia County, PA since 2013.
The president of the PTO contacted Bloomsburg police, saying several thousands of dollars were missing from their account. When confronted, Duane admitted taking the $49,624.67 over the past five years by writing checks to herself and by signing the president’s name on them.
Parents and elementary school students were stunned by Duane’s actions. “If it goes five years, there weren’t any checks and balances,” said grandparent Cindy Eisenhower. “There needs to be checks and balances on something like that.”
Duane has repaid some of the money she took and must also serve 80 hours of community service.
