Former Golden High Financial Secretary Pleads Guilty To Embezzling
GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4)– A former financial secretary at Golden High School pleaded guilty to embezzling from the school.
Judith Eakins admitted in court on Friday to stealing nearly $156,000.
Eakins often worked at the door collecting money for school events including plays and concerts. Then she pocketed the cash.
Court records show there are discrepancies in several accounts she managed for the school. Eakins was employed at Golden High School from Oct. 1999 to Nov. 2012.
Eakins also misused the school credit card and taken property she purchased with the card for her personal use.
The investigation found Eakins spent the money on a computer tablet, dinners, gifts, a $10,000 DVD collection and more.
Eakins faces 12 years behind bars when she is sentenced in October.
Earlier this year Eakins was sentenced to six years probation after she admitted to stealing more than $32,000 from her 92-year-old mother.
Eakins’ mother, Dorothy Morvay, suffered from advanced dementia. Eakins used her mother’s Social Security and pension income for her own personal expenses.
