A hearing which had been scheduled Wednesday morning, to allow a former president of a local elementary school parent-teacher association to plead guilty to allegations she stole from the organization, was reset at the last minute.
Amy Gray of Greenville had received an indictment for forgery from the Hunt County grand jury in April. The indictment included 21 separate counts, alleging Gray wrote forged checks on the account of the Bowie Elementary School PTA.
A hearing was set Wednesday in the 196th District Court, during which Gray had been expected to enter a guilty plea.
But Judge Steve Tittle noted prosecutors filed a motion Wednesday morning, asking for the hearing to be reset in order to allow Gray’s alleged victims to appear at the session. Tittle approved the motion and rescheduled the hearing for Aug. 29.
Gray has applied for probation, should she be convicted of the indictment and the sentence imposed is 10 years or less, as she has never been convicted of a felony.
Gray’s family members said the entire missing amount has been repaid.
The indictment alleged Gray passed 21 checks between Aug. 20 and Nov. 27, 2011, in amounts ranging from $108.93 to more than $3,900 each. The total amount Gray was alleged to have stolen came to just under $20,000.
