The indictment alleges the illegal actions took place between Jan. 1, 2011, and Dec, 31, 2014. Kendell, who asked Gee to set a substantial bond, declined further comment.
The indictments list the value of theft at more than $150,000 but less than $750,000 with the victim described as a disabled adult.
The Ohio Supreme Court placed Brumbaugh on interim suspension on October 2016 and indefinite suspension in May 2017.
Defense lawyer Jack Hemm told Gee that Brumbaugh had moved to Arizona where he was active in the community. He said Brumbaugh didn't "leave this community for the purpose of hiding."
If bail is posted, Brumbaugh would live locally with relatives, Hemm said. "Jeff has no intention of leaving the area until this is resolved," he said.
A pretrial hearing was scheduled for Oct. 29.
