Woman sentenced in theft of nearly $10,000 from school club

GOLDEN, Colo. — The district attorney says a Jefferson County woman has been sentenced to five years’ probation and a year in the county jail work release program for stealing nearly $10,000 from a high school booster club.

According to a statement Tuesday, 57-year-old Kathleen McGrath was treasurer in 2012 and 2013 of the club at Chatfield High School that raised funds for sports teams. As treasurer, McGrath collected receipts from parents’ and players’ fundraising efforts, often in cash, to deposit in the club’s bank account.

McGraft, who pleaded guilty to felony theft in January, made purchases and withdrawals totaling $9,976 not related to club business.
