A Kenmore woman was arraigned Thursday afternoon in State Supreme Court, charged with stealing money from a high school volleyball club.

Kerri Brown, 42, is accused of stealing over $12,000 while serving as treasurer of the Kenmore West High School Volleyball Booster Club.

An investigation began after the group's bank account had insufficient funds to purchase pizza for the student athletes. It was alleged that Brown took cash from various team fundraisers between July 2018 and June 2020.

She was indicted on one felony count of third degree grand larceny and released on her own recognizance, as the charge is a non-qualifying offense for bail. A return court date is pending, and if Brown is convicted, she faces a maximum of seven years in prison.
