PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The former treasurer of the Junior League of Rhode Island has admitted to embezzling more than $126,000 from the women’s organization.

Kimberly Moore pleaded no contest Wednesday to one count of felony embezzlement over $100. Under the terms of the plea, Moore has been convicted and was sentenced to three years of home confinement. She was also ordered to pay restitution of $76,159 to the organization and $50,000 to two insurance companies.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said that if the case had gone to trial, the state would have shown that the 49-year-old Moore began siphoning money from the business checking account of the Junior League in September 2012.

In December 2014, the Junior League noticed money missing from its accounts. Rhode Island State Police conducted a forensic audit.
