For­mer Bryan City Coun­cil Pres­i­dent Mark Kelly was among those indicted Tues­day by a Williams County grand jury. Kelly was charged with felony theft. Accord­ing to the indict­ment, Kelly is accused of steal­ing money from the soci­ety from Novem­ber of 2009, to last August. Ini­tial indi­ca­tions place the amount of money stolen by Kelly at between $1,000 and $7,500.

Kelly resigned as coun­cil pres­i­dent at the end of Jan­u­ary. At that time, he said it was for per­sonal rea­sons and a pos­si­ble job relo­ca­tion. The very next day, the Gene­o­log­i­cal Soci­ety accused him of the theft, say­ing that Kelly had “mis­ap­pro­pri­ated” the money.

The for­mer Bryan City Coun­cil Pres­i­dent is due in court on April 30th.

The Bryan Times reports that if con­victed, Kelly could be locked up in prison for a year and be hit with $2,500 in fines.
