The woman who stole funds from the Oliver Elementary Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) will be sentenced in Penticton Supreme Court on Friday, Sept. 17.

Belinda Yorke pleaded guilty to theft over $5,000 in February after misappropriating funds using her role as PAC treasurer. The thefts occurred between June 2016 and June 2018.
