The Deming Headlight reports the board voted last week to file a civil lawsuit against a former Deming High School secretary accused of misusing funds.

A 63-page forensic audit by the Jaramillo Accounting Group in December 2017 details the former employee's misuse of a district purchase card, activity funds, purchase orders and receipts.

Officials say as much as $145,000 remains unaccounted for over a four-year period.

The district was able to recuperate most of the lost funds through its liability insurance.

Superintendent Arsenio Romero says the district needs to still recover some of those funds.
