  Original Published: 4/4/2014Three former officials of the Mansfield Tyger All-Sports Booster Club pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to taking money raised by bingo games. Some charges were dismissed, while others were reduced. In the end, former club president Cheryl Patrick pled guilty to three first-degree misdemeanor counts. Former Mansfield Police officer William Clemons, a trustee for the booster club, pled guilty to four fourth-degree felony counts and three fifth-degree felonies. His wife, club trustee Kendall Clemons, pled guilty to nine charges. Assistant Ohio Attorney General Brad Tammarro says he's satisfied justice is being served and these pleas will close the case. Pre-sentence investigations were ordered for all three defendants, and they return to court Monday May 19th at one p-m Patrick faces up to 18-months in the county jail, $3000 in fines, and must pay $36,000 of restitution.
