Former Pa. Little League treasurer admits thefts



Published: Thu, May 16, 2013 @ 3:30 p.m.

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) — A former treasurer has been sentenced to 36 weekends in jail after she admitted stealing more than $26,000 from a suburban Philadelphia Little League.

The Delaware County Daily Times reports 40-year-old Theresa Becker was treasurer of the Ridley Area Little League from October 2010 until September 2012, when officials discovered more than $26,000 missing from the group’s checking account.

Authorities say an audit determined that 32 checks had been paid without a signer’s authorization, 16 of them made payable to “Theresa Becker” and 14 made payable to cash.

Becker’s attorney, Gerry Gebhart, says she made desperate choices because she was in an abusive relationship. Becker apologized in court Wednesday.

She’s also been ordered to pay $1,000 a month in restitution until the finds are replaced.
