Former town of Manlius court clerk charged with stealing over $122,000

Kim Amidon appeared in Pompey town court Tuesday night

— Kim Amidon, of Lafayette, appeared in Pompey town court on March 5 after being accused of stealing more than $122,000 of bail and fine money the day before.

Amidon was arraigned in Syracuse court on March 4 where she was charged with three felonies: grand larceny, defrauding the government and falsifying business records. She was also charged with one misdemeanor – official misconduct. She was then released and allowed to appear with a lawyer the next day.

Amidon and her lawyer, Joseph Favata appeared before Judge Ralph Cognetti March 5 where she plead not guilty. Amidon was then scheduled to appear in court on July 16.

The town of Manlius is still under investigation by the Onondaga County District Attorney’s office after a “discrepancy in funds” was discovered during an audit performed in Oct. 2012.

Town of Manlius Supervisor Ed Theobald said Amidon’s last day of employment was during the second week of January.
