OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma County prosecutors have charged a former secretary at Cooper Middle School with embezzlement after thousands of dollars went missing.

The superintendent of Putnam City Schools called campus police after learning of discrepancies in the financial records. A year-end analysis of Cooper Middle School's finances indicated nearly  $10,000 went missing between July 2010 and June 2011. The missing money was supposed to be deposited in student activity funds.

Lisa Loraine Marin, 43, was the school's financial secretary at the time the money disappeared. It was her first year in the position, although she'd worked for the district a total of nine years. According to court documents, Marin admitted during an interview that she'd taken the money to pay personal bills.

Marin resigned August 23. Oklahoma City Police arrested her August 30. She was released on $4,000 bond. Oklahoma County prosecutors have charged her with embezzlement and second-degree forgery.
