Oakes, who was an accountant with the district’s nutrition services department, was arrested on Aug. 7 on suspicion of embezzlement. According to a Rialto Police Department search warrant, she was recorded on video stuffing school lunch money into her bra.
The nutrition services department has an annual budget of $16 million, according to Rialto Unified spokeswoman Syeda Jafri.
Attorney Trevin Sims of the Los Angeles office of Lozano Smith, which represents the district, advised the school board to release only limited information at this time, as Stewart’s investigation “implicates a number of people.”
Oakes is the only person arrested, but no charges have been filed against her.
Holy shit this comment following the article:
Why doesn't any news organization address the fact that this woman had a long-standing affair with Superintendent Harold Cebrun, who took fake bereavement leave from the District this past month? Now he's on paid "administrative leave" while Rialto teachers haven't had a raise in SEVEN years???_____
