Woman charged with stealing from Lockhart Little League
By LPR Staff
A Caldwell County Grand Jury last week entered an indictment against a local woman accused of stealing money from Lockhart Little League.
According to the indictment, Jennifer Joanne St. Peter, 31, of Lockhart, is accused of taking money from the Lockhart Little League association, in an amount more than $1,500, but
less than $20,000. The theft, the indictment says, was an ongoing action that occurred between May 26 and Nov. 10, 2010.
Sources involved in Little League said St. Peter had been appointed as treasurer of the organization at that time, but has since been relieved of those duties.
At the level specified by the indictment, the charge of Theft is a state jail felony, carrying a possible sentence of a jail term between 180 days and two years, and a fine of up to $10,000.
Contact information for St. Peter or an attorney representing her was not available at press time and requests for comment from Little League representatives had not been returned.
