EDISON — A former president of the North Edison Little League was charged today with stealing more than $35,000 from the organization over a period of more than three years, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan announced.
Terry Taylor, 54, of Edison was charged with theft, a third degree offense, following an investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. Taylor, who served as an official of the Little League and held various titles, including vice-president and president, was released on his own recognizance. No court dates have been set.
Investigator Donald Heck of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that Taylor, while acting in his official capacity, obtained funds in various amounts from the Little League’s account between January 2008 and April 2011, Kaplan said.
The investigation began after an audit showed discrepancies in the league’s account and a league official contacted the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
