Robert A. Kroon Jr. of 575 Hunt Road will be sentenced March 12 by County Judge Lee Towne Adams.

Kroon was accused of defrauding Dr. Robert Daniels, a Jamestown obstetrician and gynecologist, of nearly $200,000 in 1988-89.

Assistant District Attorney Paul Andrews said he was arrested after an investigation launched last November by Jamestown police.

Kroon was charged with second-degree grand larceny for embezzling $121,000 last year, and placing the money -- which was to be set aside for a retirement program -- into his own account. Kroon used the money to pay off debt, Andrews said.

Kroon also was charged with third-degree grand larceny in the theft of about $41,000 in tax refunds which was due Daniels in 1988.

Segren was accused of selling about two pounds of marijuana to undercover police in a restaurant parking lot. He will be sentenced March 12 on charges of first- and third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and second- and fifth-degree criminal
