PERRYSBURG - The woman accused of stealing more than $95,000 from two school groups and a baseball team in the city had a history of passing bad checks, according to court records.
Records from the Fulton County Court of Common Pleas show that Kiki Lorann, 35, Perrysburg, was found guilty in 2006 of negligent check passing in Swanton, and paid fines totalling $100 plus court costs. She also received a reduced charge of negligent check passing after pleading guilty in another incident in that county in 2009. She paid a fine of $75 plus court costs in that later case.
A 2007 charge of passing bad checks occurring in Wauseon was dismissed after she made a restitution payment to the affected business.
Lorann is now charged with embezzling a total of $95,587.61 from Perrysburg Elementary Parents Association, Toth Parent Club and the Perrysburg Sting Travelling Baseball team. She entered not guilty pleas to the changes in Perrysburg Municipal Court Wednesday.
Tom Hosler, superintendent of Perrysburg City Schools, called the losses a "staggering amount of money."
He added, "The whole thing is tragic. I feel bad for all the volunteers and the students."
Hosler said many people have questioned how the school system could be amiss in not catching her activity sooner.
He explained the organizations operate independently of the school system.
