BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( — Former Poinciana Elementary School Bookkeeper Lauren MacQueen will spend 10 years on probation, with the first under house arrest, for stealing $36,000 from the School District of Palm Beach County. She pled guilty today to one count of grand theft over $20,000, and one count of “official misconduct.”

According the office of State Attorney Michael McAuliffe, “The probable cause affidavit states that the defendant, while employed as Bookkeeper for Poinciana Elementary School in the Palm Beach County School District, engaged in a pattern of theft of cash, checks, and misuse of school purchasing cards to deprive the School District of approximately $36,000.00. Furthermore, the defendant falsified official records to conceal her thefts.”

She faced up to 20 years in prison. 10 years of probation seems to be a good deal.
