A Lumberton woman that pleaded guilty earlier this week to stealing more than $70,000 from
the Lumberton High School Band Booster Club returns to the Hardin County courthouse today
for the punishment phase of her trial. Helen Cox, who was the club’s treasurer, admitted to
using the money at casinos and other stores for personal use. She faces up to 20 years in prison
and a $10,000 fine. The trial is taking place in Judge Steve Thomas’ courtroom.
