HARDEMAN COUNTY, TN (WMC) - A former 5th-grade teacher and Beta Club sponsor pleaded guilty to stealing funds from the club.
Erin Piefer resigned from Toone Elementary School in August 2017.
A Tennessee Comptroller's Office investigation found more than $2,000 was stolen from the Beta Club over a one-year period.
The money was collected by students during a candy fundraiser.
Piefer admitted to using the money for past-due house payments.
