ATLANTA (AP) - The former president of an elementary school PTA and educational foundation has been sentenced to jail and probation for stealing at least $80,000 from the groups.
Fulton County District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones says 48-year-old Maryam Arjomand pleaded guilty Thursday to forgery and theft by taking.
Jones says Arjomand, of Atlanta, was the president of the E. Rivers Elementary School PTA and the E. Rivers Education foundation. Jones says the money was embezzled from both groups between 2010 and 2012.
Investigators found the money was diverted to an unauthorized account where Arjomand once worked.
Arjomand was sentenced to 10 years in prison and is ordered to serve 90 days in jail. Jones says Arjomand is ordered to serve the rest of her sentence on probation.
