Louisville PTA Mom indicted on fraud charges


A Liberty Elementary PTA Mom was indicted by an Oldham County grand jury for theft of more than $11,000 by forging checks from the school’s PTA.

Melanie Winkle, 39, of LaGrange, is charged with theft by unlawful taking and nine counts of forgery. It began in June 2010 with a $3,000 check Winkle allegedly forged, followed by eight additional checks over the next nine months.

The checks totaled $11,527.14. The police launched an investigation after PTA board members found discrepancies earlier this summer.

Winkle’s pretrial conference is scheduled for September 1
