April 3, 2009
METHUEN, MA — A Timony Grammar School custodian is accused of using school computers to participate in illegal gambling, according to the Eagle-Tribune.
Patrick Winn was charged with registering bets and using a telephone for gaming on March 5; he is due back in court April 15, the story stated.
According to police, there is reason to believe three Timony School computers contain evidence of Winn''s illegal gambling, and they, along with another computer and several documents from Winn''s home, were confiscated.
Arthur Broadhurst, Winn''s attorney, said: "Pat Winn is not a bookie and they''ll find that out when they''ve done their investigation. There''s nothing on the computers. This is a wild goose chase."
Winn, who can be put on administrative leave at the discrepancy of Superintendent Jeanne Whitten, remains on the job as the investigation continues, the story noted.
