Hamlet, 45, surrendered at the Leon County Jail on Monday night.

An investigation coinducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement found she falsely claimed $1,821 in school-related travel expenses.

The issue was discovered during an ongoing investigation into the finances related to FAMU’s Marching 100 band, but the charges against her are not related to the band.

The expenses are related to trips taken in 2010 and 2011.

Hamlet has been released on bail and her arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 18.
