Following a brief court appearance in Norwalk Superior Court Monday, October 1, where no plea was entered, court officials confirmed that the Kyle Lyddy case was transferred to the Stamford Superior Court.
Lyddy, who is facing one count of Larceny in the First Degree, was arrested and charged by Norwalk Police on September 11.
His next court appearance is scheduled for October 18, according to the Norwalk Court Clerk.
Norwalk police say Lyddy, 31, who resides in Danbury, was charged following a month-long investigation regarding the alleged misappropriation of $500,000 from Match Marketing Group, his former employer in Norwalk.
Locally, Lyddy was appointed to chair the Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission from its inception in 2013 until he resigned in early April of this year.
Besides his volunteer work with the memorial commission, Mr Lyddy ran an unsuccessful campaign for the 106th District State House seat in 2016. He also served as the manager for the Oz Griebel and Monte Frank gubernatorial campaign until he resigned just before his arrest.
Following his arrest, Lyddy was released after posting a $100,000 bond.
