    A Massachusetts teacher charged with stealing almost $3,000 in proceeds from prom ticket sales has agreed to repay the money.

    The Berkshire Eagle reports that Kate Frissell, a former teacher at Hoosac Valley Middle and High School in Cheshire, admitted to sufficient facts to a larceny charge in court on Wednesday. That means while not pleading guilty, she acknowledges prosecutors have enough evidence to convict.

    Under a plea deal, the Hinsdale woman must repay the school district $2,629 and pay a $90 fine.

    The investigation started in November after another teacher reported funds missing from the Class of 2016 prom ticket sales account while Frissell was serving in a student advisory role.

    Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Frissell has been fired.
