Suspected fraudster now accused of stealing funds from East Central booster club
The woman, Ashlee Ring, had been serving as treasurer of the district’s FFA/agriculture booster club, despite being under indictment in an unrelated felony fraud case, public records confirm. Ring has not been formally charged in the booster club case. “The booster club neglected to follow best practices in accounting procedures, such as requiring two signatures for every transaction. ECISD police records show the alleged booster club theft is being investigated as a misapplication of fiduciary property between $2,500 and $30,000, a state jail felony. Oliver said via email that because the booster club is its own organization, a criminal background check was not required for its members.
