Molokai charter school clerk sentenced for embezzling $12K


A former Molokai charter school clerk was sentenced to 90 days in prison and five years of probation Thursday for embezzling more than $12,000 from the school.

Sonja Domingo, 41, was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $12,478.65 and to complete 350 hours of community service.

Domingo was employed by Kualapuu Public Charter School between August 28, 2012 and January 14, 2013. During that time, Domingo falsified receipts and failed to deposit money she received from students and parents for meals, fundraisers and a book sale, according to the state Attorney General.

Domingo pled guilty to three counts of second-degree theft on July 8.

At Thursday’s sentencing, Domingo submitted an initial payment of $1,000 in restitution and completed an apology letter to the school.
