FRONT ROYAL – Robert Binnix, the Front Royal Little League’s former treasurer who stands charged on a felony count of embezzlement from the organization, appeared briefly in Warren County Circuit on Monday.

Judge William W. Sharp scheduled an Aug. 26 hearing at which a date for Binnix’s trial will be set.

According to previous reports, Binnix is accused of embezzling from the Front Royal League between April 2016 and March 2017. He served as the organization’s treasurer for three years.

Front Royal Police Department detective David Fogle has said that the Front Royal Little League’s previous board had few checks and balances but the current board has put a stop to all illicit activities involving finances within the organization.
