Des Plaines school employee accused of stealing registration fees

A Des Plaines-area school employee is free on bond after being charged Thursday in connection with the theft of roughly $2,000 in school registration fees, Cook County authorities said.

Marisol SukhuMarisol Sukhu, 40, had been employed for about a year as an administrative assistant at Stevenson School, at 9000 Capitol Drive in an unincorporated Cook County area near Des Plaines.

During a five-month period between December and April, Sukhu allegedly stole about $2,000 in registration fees parents paid to the school, Cook County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said.

According to East Maine School District 63 Superintendent Scott Clay, Sukhu pocketed parents’ cash payments for registration while failing to send their completed registration form to the district. A school employee noticed the missing money and contacted the school principal.

Sukhu returned about $1,200 when district officials confronted her about the money. She resigned her position after being suspended.

Sukhu is expected to appear in court June 10.
