Village of Hamburg’s Recreation
Hamburg Recreation Worker Sentenced to Jail and Probation for Stealing $156K
The village of Hamburg’s recreation attendant was sentenced to three months of weekends in jail and five years of probation for her theft of $156,374, which she has now repaid. Joanne Erickson skimmed money from village fees, then altered public records to conceal her crime, according to State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli and Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn.
Erickson, 54, took fees from 2011 to 2017, including money for children’s programs, according to an investigation and audit by the State Comptroller’s office. This led to Erickson’s firing from her $35,000-a-year job. Last year, the four-year village employee pleaded guilty to grand larceny, false filing and official misconduct.
