PIERRE – A Pierre woman has pleaded guilty to stealing money from the sale of Girl Scout cookies.

KCCR and KGFX reports that 47-year-old Bonnie Gallagher appeared in Hughes County Circuit Court on Wednesday to plead guilty to a charge of grand theft.

Prosecutors say Gallagher stole $38,000 in cookie money between 2007 and 2012. She is currently out on bond.

Gallagher told the judge that she was in charge of handling the money raised from the cookie sales. She says she would deposit the money into her own account for her to use.

Gallagher faces up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. She must also pay restitution.

Sentencing is set for March 5.
