Former school bookkeeper pleads guilty to embezzlement


A former school bookkepper pleaded guilty to embezzling between $40,000 and $95,000. 

In federal court Wednesday, Antoinette Garcia admitted to stealing from Bernalillo Public Schools where she worked in 2014 and 2015, and it wasn’t the first time. 

In 2007, Garcia was charged with forgery and embezzlement at a credit union where she worked, though that did not turn up on her background check when she was hired at BPS. 

She faces 10 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine.
