MT ORAB, OH(FOX19) - A Brown County Grand Jury indicted Lori Henley on theft charges after prosecutors say that she took over 5 thousand dollars from the Mt. Orab Girls' Softball Association for her personal use.
The Brown County Prosecutors' Office says that Henley wrote numerous check from the Association for cash and failed to make deposits from the proceeds of the concession stand. They say she paid her personal electric bill with an Association check.
The theft was discovered after the Association's concession stand was repossessed in January 2009 for non-payment of the contract terms. Association members believed that the concession stand was paid in full, but Henley had entered into a contract to purchase the building then failed to keep up with the payments.
Theft is a felony of the fourth degree when the amount taken is over $5,000 but less than $100,000. It carries a penalty from 6 to 18 months in prison and $5,000 dollar fine plus restitution.
Henley has not been arrested at this time.
