STEUBEN COUNTY, N.Y. (WETM) – Kris Kester, a corrections officer with the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, has been charged with grand larceny by State Police.
Kester, who is still employed, was convicted of taking $2,500 from the Bath Ambulance Corporation while he was president.
Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker says that bookkeeping was a problem as it was unclear exactly how much money was taken.
Kester entered a plea to petit larceny and was ordered to repay the $2,500.
Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard said the county is aware of the situation and will take appropriate action.
