Icenhour must repay $23 to Little League, given year's probation

On March 28, 2012, the Johnson County’s Sheriff’s Department arrested Jennifer Icenhour on an indictment presented to the Johnson County Grand Jury.  Icenhour had been the treasurer of the Johnson County Little League during both the 2010 and 2011 seasons.  The Johnson County Little League board of directors went to the Johnson County District Attorney office requesting an investigation regarding missing monies.  The complaint was then forward to the Sheriff’s Department for further investigation.
After her arrest, Icenhour was transported to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department.  Her bond was set for $5,000 and she was scheduled to be in Johnson County Criminal Court on April 18, 2012 for her first court appearance.  She was ultimately charged with theft over $1,000.
Icenhour appeared in criminal court on February 3, 2014 and agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOA). In the MOA, both Icenhour and the State of Tennessee requested the court system postpone any further prosecution in her charges of theft under $500. The initial charge of theft over $1,000 was reduced to a charge of theft under $500 based on what the assistant district attorney’s office could prove in a court of law. These charges were pending within the Johnson County criminal court.  The State of Tennessee agreed to resolve all of the potential charges pertaining to her involvement with Johnson County’s Little League organization.
The agreement states that Icenhour be placed on probation for 11 months and 29 days.  She must report every three months to the probation office located in Mountain City.  She must obey the laws of the country.  Icenhour is required to pay court costs associated with her case.  Furthermore, she was instructed to pay the Johnson County Little League $23 in reimbursement. Any violations of these conditions may cause the agreement to be voided and prosecution against Icenhour may be resumed.

“We as the Johnson County Little League board have no official stance on the case with Mrs. Icenhour, or wish to comment about her or the case,” said the members of the 2014 Johnson County Little League board in a statement issued to The Tomahawk. “ We would like to, say that we are a newly elected board of community citizens with no knowledge of past allegations. We as the board of Johnson County Little League have only the children’s best interest at heart. We have restructured our policies and guidelines and initiated a Treasury committee that oversees all funds that come through our organization to ensure that no funds can be used for personal use. We as a board are working diligently to reinstate our credibility in our community and want to make JCLL a premier league in the Little League Organization. We would like to ensure all funds obtained through donations from the community and through registration fees will be used in a positive way for the children of Johnson County Little League. We are continually striving to make improvements and your support is greatly appreciated.”
