JURUPA VALLEY  (AP) — The former president of a local Southern California PTA has been charged with grand theft for allegedly stealing $20,000 raised from children's candy bar sales.

Patricia Gledhill pleaded not guilty earlier this month to two felony counts.

Gledhill was PTA president last year for Stone Avenue Elementary School in Jurupa (huh-ROO'-puh) Valley.

According to court records, Gledhill told authorities she took fundraising money to pay for food, rent, and the cost of divorce and child-custody battles.
