A former Plainview Little League official accused of stealing more than $38,000 from the league was arraigned Monday.
Joseph Green, 55, was the subject of a four-month embezzlement investigation. Authorities say between Nov. 2005 and July 2007 Green stole blank invoices and filled them out with phony equipment orders he said the Plainview Baseball Association was paying for. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says Green cashed the Little League?s reimbursement checks and deposited them into his own bank account at least 10 times.
When Little League officials became aware of the activity last fall they confronted Green and forced him to step down from his volunteer position.
Green was charged with third-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and 10 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree. He faces a minimum of seven years in prison if convicted.
