Janet Daily, 36, faces a maximum of a year in jail when she is sentenced March 16 by Vista Superior Court Judge Robert Kearney.
The defendant is expected to make full restitution by the time of sentencing, said Deputy District Attorney Kate Flaherty.
Daily, who oversaw the bank accounts of Girl Scout troops in Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe for seven years, reportedly told authorities that she had been taking the money because of financial difficulties but planned to return it.
Coordinators discovered thousands of dollars missing from their coffers after Daily announced she was leaving the organization and was moving out of state, sheriff's Sgt. Mark Varnau said earlier.
A moving van and several boxes packed with family belongings was at Daily's home when deputies arrived, Varnau said.
He said the defendant was carrying $1,000 when she was arrested Nov. 22 in Encinitas.
