Georgetown LL: Board Member Theft of Funds- Statement
by posted 02/06/2019

The Georgetown Little League (“GLL”) Board is providing this information to keep the community informed about the arrest of a former Board member regarding the theft of Little League funds, and point out the steps that the Little League has – and will – take moving forward.

A sub-committee of the GLL Board was established months ago. The following GLL Board members are on this committee: Sean Wright (President of the GLL Board); Dr. Tyler Wolf (VP of Baseball), and Chris DeJongh (Treasurer). The mission of the sub-committee is to do the following:

  • Oversee, with the assistance of Joel Baar (GLL's outside counsel),  the restitution of funds through a criminal restitution order, civil litigation, an insurance claim, or other means;
  • Receive updates on the investigation, the criminal process, and all other actions undertaken in this regard;
  • Work collaboratively with the full GLL Board, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department and the Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office; and
  • Strengthen internal controls so that all measures are taken to hopefully prevent a similar situation from happening again in the future.

The Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office is handling the criminal prosecution arising from this matter. We are thankful for and appreciate the efforts of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, and particularly the detectives who diligently worked on this matter.  If necessary, a civil lawsuit may be filed by the GLL seeking recovery of the funds. Finally, the GLL Board is conducting an internal review of existing safety precautions and protocols, with the goal of preventing this from ever happening again.  The GLL Board takes this matter very seriously.  It is certainly disappointing that GLL resources were stolen by a trusted Board member, who many of us consider a longtime friend.  As stewards of GLL resources, the GLL Board takes its fiduciary duties very seriously – and these duties extend to holding people responsible for their actions.  We also view this as a teachable moment for our community.  There are consequences for misconduct, but there is also room for grace, mercy and forgiveness.  If and when a sentence is handed down by the Judge assigned to this matter, the GLL Board looks forward to a process that it views as a step towards reconciliation.
