LEBANON, Ohio (FOX19) - A Lebanon City School District employee placed on administrative leave in November has been formally charged with theft, according to court documents.
Thirty-six-year-old Kristi Ross, the choir director at Lebanon High School, was reportedly arrested in October and arraigned Dec. 23.
Court documents show Ross was charged in Lebanon Municipal Court with one count of felony theft and four misdemeanors, including misuse of a credit card, tampering with records and falsification.
The school district announced on Nov. 6 Ross had been placed on leave after a booster group alleged “financial discrepancies.”
According to the district, the accusation did not involve students or taxpayer funds.
A police investigation reportedly ensued.
Ross will next appear in court on Jan. 13.
