HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin says two public charter school administrators are pleading no contest to charges stemming from an alleged scheme involving unauthorized paid leave.

Chin said in a statement Wednesday Myron B. Thompson Academy Principal Diana Oshiro is pleading no contest to tampering with a government record.

Oshiro's sister and school vice principal Kurumi Kaapana-Aki is pleading no contest to second-degree theft and tampering with a government record.

Both received deferral supervision, which means their convictions won't appear on their records if they satisfy terms of their supervision.

Oshiro and Kaapana-Aki didn't immediately return phone messages left for them at the school.

Chin says Kaapana-Aki allegedly took 119 hours of unauthorized paid leave that cost more than $6,000 in public funds. He says the sisters backdated school leave forms.
