RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a former Southern California school district accountant recorded on video stuffing lunch money into her bra has been sentenced to five years in county jail.

The San Bernardino Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1BP2Ngv ) 50-year-old Judith Oakes was also ordered Thursday to pay back the $1.8 million taken from the Rialto Unified School District between 2005 and 2013.

She pleaded guilty last month to nine counts of misappropriating public funds.

Oakes worked for the district for 25 years. She resigned following her arrest in August 2013 on suspicion of embezzlement after surveillance videos showed her putting cash into her bra on two occasions.
