Former Ga. Tech employee facing new theft charges

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- Cobb County officials say a former Georgia Tech employee convicted of using her university-issued credit card for personal items has been charged with stealing money from a middle school band boosters club.

According to a Nov. 7 warrant, Donna Renee Gamble is suspected of taking nearly $12,000 while she was treasurer of the Marietta Middle School band boosters in 2006.

The 43-year-old is serving a 32-month sentence in a Florida prison after admitting to a five-year spending spree of more than $316,000 in personal expenses on her university credit card.

The missing money was uncovered during a university audit in August 2007.

Her attorney, Jim Berry, could not immediately be reached for comment about the new charges.
