Former PTA president facing jail for embezzlement
August 29, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Mathew Hidalgo

The former PTA president of a Daly City elementary school is facing up to six months county jail for embezzling $14,000 of the organization’s money include funds raised through book and ice cream sales, according to prosecutors.

Mathew Glenn Hidalgo, 28, pleaded no contest in June to one felony count of embezzlement in return for no prison time and the dismissal of another charge. He delayed a scheduled sentencing hearing until Oct. 3 to allow the judge who accepted his plea deal to be the one to impose sentence. Meanwhile, he remains free from custody on his own recognizance.

Hidalgo, of Belmont, was president of the PTA at Margaret Pauline Brown Elementary School in Daly City. Prosecutors say, between September and November 2012, Hidalgo cashed checks for his own use from the PTA account and also did not deposit money raised by ice cream and book sales for the school.

Hidalgo told others he gave $7,000 of the money to the school principal to buy computers but, when confronted by the administrator, said he borrowed the funds to pay $5,000 in back taxes to the IRS and prevent the repossession of his vehicle, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
