A Lynchburg resident has pleaded guilty to theft of money from the Lynchburg Little League and the Moore County Youth Football league. According to court documents, the theft was in excess of $12,000.
Sandy Holdmeyer, 34, of Old Fayetteville Highway, entered a guilty plea before Moore County Circuit Court Judge Lee Russell last Wednesday. She was given a three-year sentence to be served on supervised probation.
She was ordered to reimburse $4,586.23 to the Lynchburg Little League and $7,879 to the youth football league. As part of her plea agreement Holdmeyer is to begin making the payments in August. She was also ordered not to hold any position, paid or volunteer, with access to money or to an employer’s bank account.
Holdmeyer was indicted last April by the Moore County Grand Jury on the theft charges. The indictments allege that she took the money from the football league between April 2012 and January 2013.
She allegedly took the money from the Little League between March 2012 and March 2013.
Holdmeyer was arrested on April 19 after being indicted on charges of theft of money from the two youth leagues, of which she was a volunteer.
According to a report by Moore County investigator Mike Rainey, the alleged thefts came to light after the presidents of the Moore County Youth Football League and the Lynchburg Little League discovered the money missing from their respective organization’s checking accounts.
