Former Manlius court clerk charged, accused of embezzling more than $122,000

The former clerk in a central New York town court has been accused of embezzling more than $122,000 that had been paid in cash for bail and fines.

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that 45-year-old Kimberly Amidon was charged Monday with the felonies grand larceny, defrauding the government and falsifying business records.

An Onondaga County prosecutor tells the newspaper Amidon took the money from the town of Manlius court between January and December 2012. He says the cash was taken for personal use, but wouldn't say how she spent it or if any has been recovered.
