President of Pleasant Valley Elementary School Parent Club accused of embezzlement

A Penn Valley woman serving as president of the Pleasant Valley Elementary School District Parent Club was arrested Wednesday after she reportedly embezzled $11,000 from the organization.

Members of the parent club realized the theft after checking the group’s account, said Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal.

There should have been about $8,500 in the account and there was only $500, Royal said.

It eventually was determined during the investigation that the group’s president, Michelle Renee Huni, had taken about $11,000 from the account since October, Royal said.

Huni, 35, reportedly spent the money on a cell phone, groceries, for cash and other purchases.

She was taken into custody on suspicion of embezzlement, booked and released on $10,000 bail.
