    Littleton Woman Charged With Theft Of Booster Club Funds

    A 56-year-old Littleton woman is facing charges that she stole almost $10,000 from a girl’s volleyball booster club in Jefferson County. Kathleen McGrath, (DOB: 2-20-58) has been charged with one count of Theft $1,000-$20,000 (F4). If convicted she could potentially face a 2-6 year prison sentence.

    In March, 2013, the coach of the Chatfield High School girl’s volleyball team called the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office because it appeared that money was missing from their account and they hadn’t been able to contact their treasurer, Kathleen McGrath.

    McGrath served as treasurer for the Chatfield High School Spiker’s Booster Club from March, 2012 through February, 2013, when the funds are alleged to have been stolen.

    As club treasurer, McGrath was an authorized signor on the club’s account. The account was funded by fundraising efforts organized by parent and players to benefit the team. Most of the money received through fundraising efforts came in as cash which was given to McGrath to deposit into the club’s bank account.

    Investigators believe that there were $9,976 in purchases and account withdrawals not related to booster club business.

    A felony summons was issued to McGrath in October, 2013. When she did not respond to the felony summons, a warrant was issued for her arrest in November, 2013. McGrath was arrested in Douglas County on March 13 where she posted $5,000 bond. Her first court appearance in Jefferson County is March 24, at 10:00 in courtroom 1B.
