STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- A former bookkeeper at Stone Mountain High School pleaded guilty to theft charges DeKalb County Superior Court on Thursday.
Chyrokessia Rucks was sentenced to 15 years probation for taking nearly $23,000 from the school between 2009 and 2011. She resigned from her position in January.
"It's sad that this woman would steal from children and try to hide her wrongdoings," DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said in a statement. "To date, she has repaid $10,752.38 to the school and is ordered to repay the balance in order not to violate her probation."
Rucks had worked at the school since 2003.
