WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - The financial director of a suburban Chicago school has pleaded guilty to charges he stole from the institution.

Inam Rahim of Naperville admitted he stole more than $500,000 while employed as the director of business and finance for the Islamic Foundation in Villa Park. His trial on theft charges was scheduled to begin Monday.

According to DuPage County prosecutors, over two years beginning in 2009, Rahim funneled foundation funds to his wife through the group’s payroll and padded his own paycheck. He was also accused of issuing unauthorized checks to a company he owned.

Rahim was fired after the foundation became aware of discrepancies. He was charged in 2012.

Rahim next court date is scheduled for May 18. He faces anywhere from probation to 15 years in prison when sentenced.
