Teacher Pleads Guilty to Stealing from School and Union

Laurel Police say a teacher has pleaded guilty to stealing money from an elementary school and the teachers' union.

The department said in a news release that 49-year-old Kimberly Parker pleaded guilty last week to theft and forgery.

Officers say Parker, who was a teacher in the Laurel School District, stole more than $2,000 from the Laurel Elementary School. Authorities say she also stole more than $36,000 from the Laurel Education Association.

Police say Parker paid full restitution to the school, and made an initial payment of $20,000 to the teachers union.

Sentencing is set for June 10.
