ROSLYN HEIGHTS - A Roslyn Heights man is accused of using his position as PTA treasurer to steal cash from a school for disabled children.

Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice says John Rom stole more than $15,000 from the Henry Viscardi School PTA. Rice says the 57-year-old wrote unauthorized checks made payable to himself or to cash. She says he also made withdrawals from the PTA bank account.

Rom could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.
