LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock woman plead guilty to stealing from the Lubbock Independent School District Thursday.

43-year-old Tina Wipff and her husband Russell, 46, were indicted last year for embezzling money from a district contractor.  

Authorities say Wipffs bought items through Sodexo at LISD's expense, sold them and kept the money for themselves.

They say Tina stole around $200,000. Russell was indicted for stealing between $1500 and $20,000.

As part of her plea agreement, Wipff will serve ten years of probation. She has already paid $150,000 in restitution.

According to her lawyer, the district attorney's office will decide how that money is distributed.

Meanwhile, Russell Wipff was scheduled to plead guilty in May.

His attorney say that didn't happen and are still working on a day for his court appearance.

LISD Representative Nancy Sharp said, "We appreciate the work of the legal system to bring justice in this matter. Our Sodexo partners, by whom Ms. Wipff was employed, have provided full restitution to Lubbock ISD."
