Kelly Martinez was hired by the non-profit youth soccer club back in 2006 to help with administrative duties. But in February of last year, Martinez started handling financial responsibilities. On Monday afternoon, Martinez made her initial appearance in district court. She is charged with felony embezzlement and a misdemeanor charge for issuing a bad check.
According to court documents, Martinez overpaid herself through payroll checks, forged another person’s name on a check, and wrote fraudulent checks to herself and her husband, who worked as a coach for the club. A preliminary investigation found approximately $80,000 in fraudulent payments missing from the soccer club’s account. Martinez was released after her court appearance because she is not considered a flight risk.
