Former chamber director arrested

PENN YAN --Julie A. Coleman, 35, of Italy Friend Road, Penn Yan, was arrested and charged Friday, Oct. 12 with two felony counts.
The charges include second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument (a class D felony) and fourth-degree grand larceny (a class E felony).
Coleman was the former interim director of the Yates County Chamber of Commerce.
Authorities arrested Coleman after an investigation that started back in November, 2017. At that time, Yates chamber officials contacted the Yates Sheriff office to report "irregularities in financial matters." Coleman's position was terminated in November, 2017 and then she reportedly left the state.
On Monday, Oct. 15 Yates County District Attorney Todd Cassella said, "Coleman was arraigned Friday, Oct. 12 and remanded to the jail in lieu of $5,000 bail." Cassella said bail was then later produced and Coleman was released. Cassella said Coleman was scheduled to be in court the Monday, Oct. 15 for an appearance. Cassella said, "I need to find out who she will have as an attorney before we make an offer through her attorney and then we will see where it goes--whether it goes to grand jury or whether she waives the grand jury and enters a plea on Superior Court information."
Cassella said the amount of the check Coleman cashed (in November, 2017) was for $2,377.62.
Coleman was appointed interim chamber of commerce director in May, 2017 after the sudden passing of longtime former chamber President and CEO Michael Linehan in February, 2017.
