Ex-NJ Treasurer Admits Embezzling From Youth Baseball League

FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) — The former treasurer of a New Jersey youth sports league has admitted embezzling more than $100,000.

Hunterdon County prosecutors say 43-year-old Kevin Lockrey, of Flemington, recently pleaded guilty to theft by deception. He faces a 364-day county jail term when he's sentenced June 26, and he also will have to make full restitution to the Flemington-Raritan Baseball League.

Lockrey was charged last year after discrepancies were found during an audit of the organization's finances.

Prosecutors did not say why Lockrey took the money or how he used it.
