A former school staffer admitted racking up more than $10,000 on school credit cards in Illinois.
Jeanine M. Brooks, 37, a former school activities assistant at New Trier, had been responsible for managing financial accounts for clubs on campus.
School staff alerted Winnetka police to the possible misuse of the school credit cards. They carried out a search of her home which turned up some of the ill-gotten gains.
Prosecutors said she used four different school credit cards to buy about $24,000 worth of items online and in stores during the 2016-17 academic years.
Brooks was charged with two counts of theft of between $10,000 and $100,000 from a school and two counts of official misconduct. Brooks faced a maximum sentence of 15 years on each count, along with 5 years maximum sentences on the official misconduct charges.
