Valdosta - The former director for the Valdosta-Lowndes Recreation, Parks and Community Affairs Department pleaded guilty Wednesday to one county of theft.

Brockey Brock voluntarily resigned from the department in 2005 amid allegations he had misused department money.

On top of his department duties, he served as commissioner for the Georgia Amateur Softball Association.

The misappropriated funds stemmed from confusion when money was not returned after a tournament was canceled.

Brock's attorney says that money was actually handled by other employees.  "Brockey knows he relied on people, he trusted people, and those people breeched his trust, and he's the one taking the bullet for it," says Attorney Ralph Scoccimaro.

Brock, who had worked for the city since 1996, will be sentenced February 9th.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to 100 thousand dollars.
