LIMA — A tearful Kimberly Hall told the court she stole money from Shawnee schools and a sports booster club to pay off people who made threats to family members related to her son’s drug addiction issues.
But Hall, a former facilities administrative assistant at Shawnee schools who stole more than $50,000 during her tenure there and in her position as the treasurer of the Shawnee Baseball Boosters Association, nonetheless apologized to family, friend and former co-workers during her sentencing hearing Monday morning.
Calling hers an “odd” and “very unusual case,” Allen County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey Reed sentenced Hall to two years on probation and ordered her to make restitution totaling $41,851 to the school and the booster group. Hall has already repaid a portion of the money stolen, according to her attorney, William Kluge.
