Helena, MT - A former payroll clerk charged with stealing money from the Lodge Grass Public Schools has made a plea deal with prosecutors.
Court documents filed Tuesday say Kaylene Red Wolf will plead guilty to theft from a local government receiving federal funding.
The plea agreement drops a second charge, theft of federal funds.
Prosecutors say Red Wolf used her position to duplicate her salary payments, pay for hours she worked and overpay herself for holidays.
The charges say she stole more than $5,000.
She was indicted in July as part of the U.S. Attorney's Office's Guardians Project, which is prosecutes cases of corruption on Indian reservations.
A sentencing date has not been set.
