Former Valencia baseball coach pleads guilty to grand theft

Prosecutors confirmed Monday that former Valencia High School varsity baseball coach Jared Snyder pleaded guilty Thursday to one felony count of grand theft.

“Jared Scott Snyder pleaded guilty on Nov. 10 to one felony count of grand theft,” said Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

“As part of his plea before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus, he agreed to complete 300 hours of community service and to pay the $14,129 in restitution to the Valencia High School before he is sentenced on May 9, 2018,” she said.

Synder’s plea was a negotiated settlement.

The former baseball coach was placed on administrative leave in March 2014 by the William S. Hart Union High School District after questions arose about fundraising. He resigned in December 2014.

Snyder was charged with misappropriation of public funds in January 2015 and ordered to stand trial.

On Jan. 21, 2015 he pleaded not guilty to a seven-count felony complaint alleging misappropriation of public funds by a public officer, embezzlement by a public officer and grand theft by embezzlement.
