SYRACUSE After months of public speculation, Kim Amidon was reported to be appearing in court on Nov. 20 for the first time since she plead not guilty to three felonies and one misdemeanor in Pompey Town Court on March 5.
As it turned out, Amidon was not required to attend the hearing and her lawyer, Robert Durr, appeared on her behalf to discuss the case in front of County Court Judge Anthony Aloi.
Amidon was accused of stealing more than $122,000 worth of bail and fine money during her time employed as the town of Manlius court clerk. She was charged with grand larceny, defrauding the government, falsifying business records and official misconduct in March.
Because Durr is still working with the District Attorney’s office on details surrounding the case, Amidon will not be reporting to court until Jan. 24.
