School employee gets June court date in theft case

MONTROSE — A Montrose school district employee who is accused of theft waived formal advisement to charges Thursday and will return to court next month.

Latricia Proctor faces two felony counts of theft for dollar amounts more than $1,000 and less than $20,000.

Proctor, who has worked for the district for 23 years, was a secretary at Centennial Middle School until she was transferred to the district offices in August.

According to a complaint filed April 8, between the dates Aug. 11, 2009, and Aug. 26, 2009, Proctor stole money multiple times from the school. A second complaint alleges Proctor stole money from the school on or around Jan. 5, 2009.

District Attorney Dan Hotsenpiller told Judge Jeff Montgomery he has a conflict of interest because he knows Proctor and bought a home from her years ago. Hotsenpiller said Deputy District Attorney Seth Ryan will take over the case for the 7th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

Montgomery advised Proctor of a restraining order that prevents her from contacting any witnesses during the proceedings.

Proctor returns to court June 13 at 11 a.m.
