LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A judge in Tennessee has sentenced Greater Clark County, Ind., school board member Teresa Perkins to four years probation and other conditions after she pleaded guilty to theft over $1,000.
Perkins appeared Monday in Williamson County Circuit Criminal Court in Franklin, Tennessee.
Her sentence also includes paying restitution of $1,402.77, serving 100 hours community service and writing a letter of apology to a Franklin store called The Shoppes on Main, a court clerk said.
Perkins was accused of taking about 30 pieces of jewelry from the store in February. A grand jury indicted her in May.
Monday's plea hearing took place after the judge granted a delay from Nov. 17.
Indiana law allows elected school board members to continue serving after a felony conviction. Perkins has attended school board meetings since her arrest and indictment.
She represents District 7 in GCCS.
