Woman charged with robbing Winter Garden Little League baseball club

0

This case involving the funding of the Winter Garden Little League was initially listed as “suspicious activity”, but after a complaint and an audit, the situation turned into something more serious against the former league president. The State’s Attorney’s Office filed a grand larceny charge against 42-year-old Jaclyn Lowe. Health did not list her as an employee. The report is filled with bank statements and receipts going back two years. A League 14th District administrator, Leesa Hodges, said in a statement that staff had opened an investigation and “found a number of inconsistencies in the spending and financial transactions made by Ms. Lowe.” She goes on to say that ‘there were inconsistencies “which did not appear to have been used for the operation of the League itself.” The arrest report includes: “The charge of $372.34 on the debit card WGLL (Winter Garden Little League) … for a Garmin Venu smartwatch manufactured on 2020-06-25 and was under Jackie Lowe’s reward account.” There were also a lot of camera purchases, but not a real camera system responsibility on the ground. On Friday night, WESH 2 News spoke by phone with Jaclyn Lowe’s attorney, Trey Flynn of Nejame Law, “We understand the charge has been filed and we will continue to fight this charge,” Flynn said. We also received a statement from the Winter Garden Little League Board of Directors which reads in part: ‘Winter Garden Little League is aware of the charges filed against former League President Jaclyn Renee Lowe. Ms Lowe n has had no affiliation with WGLL since September 2020.”
