“This respondent exploited her initiative situation in a philanthropic association that should be tied in with helping children and making the city of Mansfield an extraordinary spot for kids to grow up,” Tarrant County Prosecutor Johnny Newbern said in an announcement. “Rather, she lined her own pockets.”
