Father, son convicted in Little League theft case

WOBURN, Mass. (AP) — A father and son have been found guilty of stealing what authorities say was at least $50,000 from a Medford Little League.

The Middlesex district attorney said a jury found Stanley Komins and Stephen Komins, both of Stoneham, guilty of embezzlement over $250.

Stanley Komins was ordered to serve a year in prison and pay $35,000 restitution to the West Medford Hillside Little League. Stephen Komins was ordered to serve six months and pay $5,000 restitution.

Prosecutors say Stanley Komins was previously board president and his son was treasurer. They say the league audited its finances in 2011 after the elder Komins refused to provide records after stepping down.

Prosecutors say the two used various methods to embezzle, including cashing league checks for personal use.

Neither could immediately be reached.
