A former finance director at the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York on Tuesday admitted stealing more than $300,000 from the organization.
Yaasmin Hooey, 35, of New York used the cash for cruises, cosmetic laser procedures and a $13,000 diamond ring. She also spent $18,000 in bars and restaurants, according to the District Attorney's Office.
She pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny.
Hooey admitted forging the signature of the organization's then-chief executive and writing 65 checks to herself from a payroll account. Nine wire transfers also moved money from two of the nonprofit's bank accounts to Hooey's own.
In addition, she used some of the money for "personal expenses" including groceries, a gym membership, clothing and commuter train tickets.
"It was an enormous violation of the trust the Scouts places in her as their director of finance, as well as the trust of the many girls that the organization serves," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement.
Hooey admitted stealing $311,568 between September 2008 and December 2010.
She will be sentenced in the New York Supreme Court on March 6.
