San Diego Mom Admits Stealing from Girl Scouts

A former volunteer bookkeeper with the Girl Scouts did more than just see how cookie sales were going.

Janet Daily, 36, of Rancho Santa Fe, pleaded guilty Thursday in a San Diego court to a felony embezzlement charge for stealing some $10,000 over an 18-month period from troops in North County. She faces the maximum of a year in jail when she is sentenced in March.

Daily, the mother of two young girls and a Girl Scouts volunteer for the last seven years, was charged with two felony grand theft counts by an employee.

After investigators began to question some missing money in the Girl Scouts accounts, Daily admitted to them that she had taken the money over the past year and a half because her family was having financial problems.
