HONOLULU (AP) - A former clerk is pleading no contest to stealing nearly $20,000 from a Hawaiian-focused charter school.

The state attorney general’s office announced Monday that Christine Atisanoe pleaded no contest last week to second-degree theft.

She was charged with stealing the money while working as a clerk for Ka Waihona O Ka Naauao Public Charter School in Nanakuli from 2010 to 2012. An internal audit by school officials found she didn’t deposit money collected from students and parents for various activities including meals, field trips and afterschool programs.

Prosecutors say she used the money for to pay her utility bills and credit cards.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 15.
