Latricia Lynn Proctor, a former secretary at Centennial Middle School, was issued the summons on Sunday, April 17. She was not arrested, but must face the charges in court at on Thursday, May 12, at 9 a.m.
School district spokeswoman Laurie Laird said that Proctor is currently on paid administrative leave. She has been a school district employee for 23 years, spending most of that time at Centennial, but was transferred to the district office in August of last year. Proctor was placed on leave on Monday, April 18, the day after she was charged.
According to court records, between Aug. 11 and Aug. 26, 2009, Proctor twice allegedly stole between $1,000 and $20,000. For the second count, the record states that she stole the same range of money before Jan. 5, 2009, and “without authorization, by threat or deception, and intended to deprive [Montrose] School District and/or Centennial Middle School permanently of its use or benefit.”
Laird said the school district cannot comment on the charges because of personnel privacy issues.
The district’s human resources department said that Proctor was hired in September of 1988.
Proctor is represented by attorney Mark Rubinstein of Carbondale, who could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
