A Chicago woman has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $25,000 from Toys for Tots.

Fifty-five-year-old Carol Lisciandrello was a volunteer with the charity, which provides gifts for children during the holiday season.

From 2009 until 2011, she was involved with online sales of merchandise to raise money for the organization.

Cook County prosecutors say that over a period of two years, the woman moved the money over to a personal debit card instead of transferring it into a Toys for Tots checking account.

She pleaded guilty Thursday at the Bridgeview Courthouse and was sentenced to probation. She was also ordered to pay full restitution.

Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez called it "an unconscionable crime."
