P.S. 29 Treasurer to Pay Back Stolen $82,000

It's going to take a lot of back rubs.

Providence Hogan -- the ex-PTA treasurer at P.S. 29 in Cobble Hill -- agreed Monday that she would pay back the $82,000 she stole from the hard-working school. Now she has to scrape the cash together or go to jail.

Hogan is the owner of the Providence Day Spa on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill. Her daughter still attends P.S. 29, and other parents are trying to shield her from the fallout, according to the NY Times.

The Times also reported that about a dozen parents showed up in Brooklyn Supreme Court at Hogan's appearance Monday to make sure that justice was done. Her lawyer said Hogan needed more time to come up with the money.

The Brooklyn Eagle said that Hogan will have to pay 40 percent of the money at the time of the plea deal (next month) and the balance within nine months.

The Daily News also has details about this story.

(It was also at P.S. 29 that several idiotic teens burned down part of the new playground. More on that here. )
