Forty-nine-year-old Martine Tavakoli of McLean, Va., entered the plea on Thursday. She will be sentenced on Sept. 22 and agreed to make restitution.[good luck with that]
According to government documents, Tavakoli had worked at American since 1981 and in 1998, became coordinator of law journals. That job included receiving checks made out to AU law journals.
Prosecutors say Tavakoli would deposit checks made out to the law journals to a secret bank account. She used the money to pay rent, credit card bills and for living expenses.
