Danielle DeAnn Smallwood — former Creston Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) treasurer who used approximately $23,000 from the PTO account for personal use between October 2010 and April 2013 — was sentenced Friday.

Smallwood received two years probation after being found guilty of second-degree theft by misappropriation. Her probation will be served under the 5th Judicial District Department of Correctional Services.

Court documents show Smallwood still owes Creston PTO just more than $2,000. Smallwood has been ordered to make restitution payments to the PTO until the organization is completely repaid.

Smallwood is also required to pay several fees and penalties including: $300 probation supervision fee, $750 civil penalty and $125 law enforcement initiative surcharge.

Smallwood must completely abstain from the consumption of alcoholic beverages and should refrain from entering establishments where alcoholic beverages are consumed. Smallwood must also abstain from unauthorized use of controlled substances, as well as several other probation requirements.
