SEATTLE -- Court documents show that one of three people accused of stealing more than $250,000 from Seattle public schools earlier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor related to escort services.

The Seattle Times
reports that Lorrie Kay Sorensen pleaded guilty in 2005 in King County Superior Court to a reduced charge of attempted promoting prostitution. She received 15 days electronic home monitoring for the misdemeanor conviction. The Times says she admitted she knowingly profited from the prostitution of another.

In the schools scandal, Silas Potter Jr. is accused of helping himself to cash filtered through two dummy companies doing business with the school district.

Potter and David Anthony Johnson were each charged with nine counts of theft. Sorensen was charged with four counts of theft. Johnson and Sorensen worked for the companies.

Arraignment is scheduled Nov. 8.
