A woman will pay back thousands of dollars she defrauded the local school district out of over a period of six months.

Cerrina Monika Drawert, 44, was ordered to pay back $8,949.39 to the Coast Mountains School District 82 after pleading guilty to a charge of fraud over $5,000 in  court Aug. 27.

The offence took place between September 1, 2012 and February 26, 2013.

She will spend five months in jail and three years on probation with conditions that include not going to any school district building unless she has written permission from her probation supervisor, not to possess financial documents of any people or entities or conduct financial transactions with people unless they are provided with a copy of the court order.

Drawert was also ordered to provide a DNA sample. A charge of theft over $5,000 was stayed by the court.
