Charges Against Red Bank Elementary PTA President Bound To Grand Jury

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Charges that the president of the Red Bank Elementary PTA used PTA funds for personal use were bound to the Grand Jury on Thursday morning without a hearing.

Doris Mizzell White, 29, of 1046 Pineville Road, appeared before General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes.

She is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card.

Ms. White remains in custody due to a hold from Criminal Court.

She was charged in 2009 with fraudulent use of a credit card and several counts of passing worthless checks. She pleaded guilty in 2010 and got a suspended sentence of 11 months and 29 days.

Prosecutors are asking that she be required to serve that term since she picked up new charges while on probation. 

Police said she was entrusted with PTA funds and she used a PTA debit card for $904.07 worth of personal expenses.

She also took $180 cash from the petty cash fund, it was charged.

Police said she told Haley Brown, the school principal, that use of the PTA money was "an accident."

She was given two weeks to repay the money and did not, it was stated.
