JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A former University School of Jackson employee has pleaded guilty to federal charges of wire and tax fraud.

The Jackson Sun reported (https://bit.ly/1uifLnC ) that 33-year-old Jessica Nicole Pinkerton of Humboldt will owe $606,375 to the school and $143,168 to the Internal Revenue Service as part of a deal with prosecutors.

Pinkerton is scheduled for sentencing Oct. 23.

Pinkerton worked as a financial services manager for the school from 2008 through 2014.

Court records show that beginning in late 2009 through early 2014, Pinkerton initiated Automatic Clearing House transfers of USJ funds into her personal bank account, authorities said.

Pinkerton also filed a 2013 IRS form 1040 stating that her earned income was $29,321 when it actually was $195,689.71.
