By Spencer S. Hsu

A former bookkeeper pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing more than $23,000 from the Hospitality Public Charter High School in the District, and faces sentencing Feb. 9, U.S. Attorney for the District Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced.

Ashanti Bumbray, 32, of Waldorf appeared before U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer of the District and faces up to six months imprisonment under federal sentencing guidelines for one felony count of theft.

Bumbray was a bookkeeper at the public charter school from about September 2008 to February 2009, court documents state, and she admitted issuing checks and bank transactions for her personal benefit.
