HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The former principal of a Hawaii charter school has been charged with four counts of felony theft.
Laara Allbrett, 64, headed up Halau Lokahi public charter school, a Native Hawaiian-focused institution.
The school had recurring financial difficulties, and the state revoked its charter in 2015.
Allbrett was arrested in the same year, and a search warrant affidavit listed questionable spending totaling nearly $102,000.
Allbrett was charged Monday with four counts of second-degree theft. Each count is punishable by up to five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
