'Sorry' New Jersey embezzler paying back $60K

[JURISPRUDENCE] The treasurer of New Jersey's Glen Rock Shooting Stars who funneled $57,761 of funds bound for the youth club into his own personal bank account has agreed to make restitution payments and will not have a criminal record if he completes a pre-trial intervention program, reports the Ridgewood-GlenRock Patch.

Sean M. Corry, 46, has already made payments of $30,000 to the club and over the next three years promises to pay the remaining $27,761.

"I apologize," Corry said. "I realize that I did something wrong and I'm happy with the opportunity to rectify it with [the] PTI [Pre-Trial Intervention Program] that was offered to me."

That Corry embezzled funds from September 2010 through July 2012 was discovered during a routine background check following Corry's move from board treasurer to board vice president in June.

"It's something you don't expect," Shooting Stars Board President Declan Daly said. "Sean was the first person to raise his hand and say, 'I'll do it.' When this came out, people on the board especially were kind of shocked and hurt. We sat for two years in board meetings and were essentially lied to."

How could that much money go missing without it being noticed?

"It's easy being the Monday morning quarterback [to] say we should have pushed further, we should have pursued it stronger," Daly said. "But again, we all have regular jobs and when you go to a board meeting with friends and coaches, you're not going to put somebody on the spot and say, 'You were supposed to have this, you were supposed to get that done.' Having said that, that's now changed."
