An East Ramapo School Board member will resign after admitting to stealing.

Bernard Charles pleaded guilty in Haverstraw Town Court. Charles rented out the Town of Ramapo's Cultural Arts Center and collected the $1,100 fee although he is not an employee of the town and had no permission to do so.

He must pay back $1,100 and will be on probation for two years.
