A former Sioux City schoolteacher has been charged for allegedly stealing nearly $3000 from accounts she set up for East High School’s Special Olympics and Friendship Connection groups.

48-year-old Melissa Dickerson is charged with second degree theft.

Court documents state Dickerson was a special education teacher in 2013 at the high school when she opened the accounts in violation of Sioux City Community School District policy.

Court documents say a bank official informed the school district that one of the accounts was overdrawn because of a MidAmerican Energy bill in Dickerson’s name.

A January 17th hearing date has been set for Dickerson.

She is free on $5000 bond from the Woodbury County Jail.
