RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California — Prosecutors say a former Southern California school district accountant recorded on video stuffing lunch money into her bra has pleaded guilty to embezzling $1.8 million.

The San Bernardino County district attorney's office says 50-year-old Judith Oakes pleaded guilty Thursday to nine counts of misappropriating public funds.

Prosecutors say Oakes could face a maximum of eight years in prison when she is sentenced on Jan. 8. She is also required to pay the $1.8 million taken from the Rialto Unified School District between 2005 and 2013.

Oakes was arrested last year.

A message was left for Oakes' attorney, C. Patrick Milligan.
