Cox Trial Continues In Hardin County

court room

The state has rested in the punishment phase in the trial of Helen Cox. The former treasurer

of the Lumberton High School Band Booster Club pleaded guilty earlier this week to stealing

more than $70,000 from the club. She used the money to gamble at casinos and to purchase

items for personal use. The defense will begin testimony this morning at the Hardin County

Courthouse. Cox, who chose a jury for the punishment phase, faces up to 20 years in prison.
