BOSTON (CBS) – A father and son from Stoneham accused of stealing more than $50,000 from the West Medford Little League will not have to sit behind bars for the time being.

Seventy-eight-year-old Stanley Komis and his 45-year-old son Steven both pleaded not guilty to larceny charges.

A judge released the two on a promise to return to court after their appearances in Somerville District Court on Friday.

The father and son are accused of stealing the money during the time they served as president and treasurer of the league for years.

The league says in 2011, when a new board was elected, members “became aware of the inconsistent and irregular accounting practices of the previous board.”

An independent audit firm looked over the league’s financial records and the documents were all handed over to police.

The elder Komins is accused of writing himself checks from the Little League’s account.

The younger Komis allegedly cashed checks from the league for his own personal use.
