Little League trespass charges dropped

February 24, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

HAGERSTOWN -- Prosecutors are dropping charges against a father who had been accused of trespassing at his son's Little League game.

Ricky A. Hockensmith, 47, was arrested last year amid a yearlong feud among parents of players in Hagerstown's National Little League. After petitioning for an election for a new league board, Hockensmith defied a league order to stay away from the fields at Hagerstown's Staley Park.

He was convicted of trespassing and fined $50 after a hearing in December in District Court and appealed that ruling to Washington County Circuit Court.
