PTO treasurer’s case continued

September 8, 2010

The former PTO treasurer accused of stealing thousands of dollars from Webb A. Murray Elementary School had her case continued.

Holly LaFone Specht, of Hickory, was scheduled to appear Tuesday in Catawba County Superior Criminal Court. Her case was continued to Nov. 1.

The defense made a motion for continuance for time needed to obtain financial documents relevant to the case.

Specht was indicted in April on charges of embezzlement by a public official, obtaining property by false pretenses and four counts of forging endorsement.

She allegedly stole money, including purchasing food from Sam’s Club, from the Murray Elementary PTO while she served as the organization’s treasurer in August 2009.
