Former PTA president jailed for embezzlement
December 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Mathew Hidalgo

The former PTA president of a Daly City elementary school was sentenced to 90 days in jail Thursday for embezzling $14,000 of the organization’s money including funds raised through book and ice cream sales.

Mathew Glenn Hidalgo, 28, pleaded no contest in June to one felony count of embezzlement in return for no prison time, no more than six months jail and the dismissal of another charge.

Hidalgo surrenders Feb. 1 and has no credit against his 90-day term as he’s been free from custody.

The sentence showed that Judge Mark Forcum “had a positive Christmas spirit,” said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

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.
