A former Rialto school accountant accused of embezzling $1.8 million in lunch money and stuffing the cash into her bra was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison.

Judith Oakes, who was the school district’s nutrition services accountant, was also ordered to pay $1.845 million in restitution for stealing the cash, according to Christopher Lee, spokesman for the San Bernardino County district attorney’s office.

The thefts dated back to 2005.
