  • A Hibbing man has pleaded guilty to a pair of allegations that he stole more than $50,000 from a local Little League over a 10-year span.
    The St. Louis County Attorney's Office says Jacob F. Smokrovich pleaded guilty Wednesday to theft and financial fraud.
    Police say Smokrovich stole almost $55,000 from the Hibbing Little League between 2001 and 2011.
    Smokrovich has already paid $20,000 of restitution. He has agreed to pay back the next $20,000 within a year and the remainder of about $14,700 within two years.
    If he pays back all the money on schedule the charges will be dismissed. If he doesn't, the case will proceed to sentencing.
    A working phone number for Smokrovich could not immediately be found Thursday.
