Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, announced the sentencing of Kevin J. Lockrey, age 43, of Flemington, NJ. who stole from little league

Kevin Lockrey, the former Flemington Raritan Baseball treasurer, was sentenced on July 24, 2015, before the Honorary Angela F. Borkowski, A.J.S.C.  Lockrey had previously pled guilty to third-degree theft by deception for theft from the organization over multiple years.  The original plea offer called for the defendant to be sentenced to up to three hundred and sixty-four days in the Hunterdon County Jail as a condition of probation.  Lockrey provided a $20,000 payment in court to the league.  Judge Borkowski sentenced the defendant to sixty days in the Hunterdon County Jail as a condition of his five-year probationary term.  The defendant remains responsible for reimbursing Chubb Insurance $50,000 for the insurance claim that was paid in connection with his theft.


According to Prosecutor Kearns said, “Today Flemington Raritan Baseball was made whole for the loss it suffered from a thief.  This money and Lockrey’s sentence can never erase the difficulty this organization faced after he secretly removed funds.  The return of these funds, however, will help this community organization dedicated to youth sports and fair play continue its vital role in our area.  I am honored that our office was able to help this group through a detailed criminal investigation and prosecution.  I would like to again thank the Board of Directors of Flemington Raritan Baseball who reported this act after they discovered it and assisted law enforcement throughout the investigation and prosecution.”
