The former president of the Three Rivers Little League has turned himself in to authorities after he was suspected of stealing funds from the league’s coffers.
Clint Roberts, 37, a Lockport Township resident, was arraigned before District Court Judge Jeff Middleton last week on a charge of embezzlement less than $20,000.
Parents of Little League players became suspicious of Roberts and he subsequently failed to provide documentation to verify the financial standing of the league.
He is free on a $5,000 personal-recognizance bond.
The league’s board, meanwhile, has been revamped and has given assurances safeguards are in place to prevent such actions from occurring again.
