A woman working for the Lancaster Central School District is accused of stealing money to pay her bills.

Rhonda Greco, 42, of Lancaster was arraigned Thursday on charges of third degree grand larceny and 10 counts of first degree falsifying business records.

Prosecutors say Greco, who worked in the Accounts Payable Department from 2009 until last year, stole $3,400 by using the district's checking account to pay her gas, electric and phone bills. The money was allegedly taken between October 2014 and September 2015.

Greco pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, she faces two-and-a-third to seven years in prison.
