The Frederick School PTO learned Jan. 24 how much money they will receive in restitution from Elizabeth S. Bako of Grayslake.

Though Bako was slated to appear in court Jan. 24, a settlement was reached prior to the hearing, the Daily Herald reports. Bako will pay $17,000 in restitution, according to the Daily Herald.

Bako was charged with two counts of felony theft, one for theft of $10,000 to $100,000 and the other for theft of $500 to $10,000. She had also been charged with two counts of unlawful purchase with a credit or debit card, according to the Lake County Circuit Clerk's Office.

Finally proven all along she was guilty-wonder how her great supporters feel about her now (don't buy her BS stories either, don't be a fool again!) PTO should feel proud they fought the whole way for the kids. It is a shame Lisa made a profit from stealing from D46 kids/parents. Lisa is disgusting and an embarrassment to have in our community. Hopefully now that the truth is out Lisa will not only have to pay but now she will face the public & bring on the evidence to show what an idiot she truly is. Public/parents support our PTO not LISA! GL don't be afraid to HONK loud at her to show OUR TOWN THAT WE DO NOT SUPPORT WHAT SHE DID TO OUR KIDS! Heck no, Lisa's got to go!
