A Kingman’s woman was sentenced to one year in jail and five years of supervised probation after stealing more than $75,000 from Topock Elementary School District.
Sarah Sanchez pleaded guilty to one count of fraudulent schemes and artifices and one count of theft last December.
According to a press release, “Diaz had access to school credit cards through a deceased family member who previously worked for the district.” She misused the credit cards by purchasing personal items and paying personal bills.
Her scheme was uncovered when a bank teller who knew Diaz saw her cashing district checks and was aware that she was not a district employee.
Under the plea agreement, Diaz must repay $75,455 to the district.
