GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The former president and treasurer of the Georgetown Little League board has pleaded guilty to embezzling from the organization.

Victoria Hillard pleaded guilty Thursday to a secondary charge of embezzling between $1,000 and $20,000, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a fine of up to three times the amount embezzled.

If Hillard pays back the full amount of $26,141.19, the original charge of embezzling more than $20,000 will be dropped.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 1.
