Former Moose Lodge Administrator Sentenced

A former Moose Lodge 1681 administrator was sentenced to five years probation and restitution for third-degree grand larceny Monday.

Walter L. Conkright Jr., 46, of Forest Avenue, Jamestown, served as an administrator at the Jamestown Moose between 2006 and 2011 and allegedly took more than $3,000 but less than $50,000 from the lodge.
