1993 - Hart High grad Dee Dee Myers (1979) becomes first female White House press secretary [story]


JaredSnyder[LASD] On January 15, 2015, a seven count felony complaint was filed against Jared Snyder (former Varsity Baseball Coach at Valencia High School) alleging counts of Misappropriation of Public Funds by a Public Officer, Embezzlement by a Public Officer, and Grand Theft by Embezzlement.

In late 2013, parents from Valencia High School, made an allegation of financial wrong-doings by the Head Varsity Coach, Jared Snyder. The allegations prompted William S. Hart School District to conduct an audit of the Valencia High School Baseball Program to determine if there was any evidence of misconduct by Snyder or members of his staff. During the audit, it was discovered there was substantial evidence to suggest Snyder had been misappropriating funds from the Valencia High School Associated Student Body, by submitting fraudulent reimbursements. The case was reported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department for further investigation.

In March 2014, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Fraud & Cyber Crimes Bureau initiated an investigation based on the findings of the William S. Hart School District’s audit. During the ten month investigation, evidence was gathered that showed Snyder was submitting fraudulent reimbursement forms to Valencia High School ASB. During the district audit, it was discovered that Snyder had opened a second bank account in the name of Valencia Diamond Club, unbeknownst to the district. The source of the deposits into this bank account was from fundraisers and donations intended for the Valencia High School Baseball program and its players. During the audit, it was determined Snyder was seeking reimbursement for items previously reimbursed by the ASB. The investigation revealed that Snyder was making monthly payments to his personal credit cards from the second “Valencia Diamond Club” bank account. In addition to the fraudulent cash reimbursements, Snyder was using the same credit cards to make personal charges unrelated to the Valencia High School Baseball program.

The investigation revealed there was $8,000.00 in fraudulent cash reimbursements embezzled from the ASB. An additional $7,000.00-plus was misdirected from the second Valencia Diamond Club bank account to pay for his personal charges on credit cards. Due to the unavailability of records from retail stores and online companies, it is believed the loss exceeds what was listed in the complaint.

On January 15, 2015, Judge Henry Barela of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, issued a felony arrest warrant for Snyder, bail was set at $70,000.00. Snyder is scheduled to surrender at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center on January 21, 2015.

  44. Straight from the article – YOU ^^ might want to reread the article. FACTS:

  49. Missy Watson Missy Watson says:

    Wow i had him my sophomore year

  50. Aaron Mizak Aaron Mizak says:

    Sole patch or goatee?

  51. I knowing Jared Snyder for years we went to Arroyo Seco and Saugus High together. He graduated a year before me. He graduated in 1988 I graduated in 1989. Jared back in high school was a gentle giant with a good heart and was willing to do anything to help a friend. Here in America all suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The William S Hart School District has had a history of cover ups dating back to when I was a student at Saugus High. There are teachers and coaches who done far worse then what coach Snyder is accused of. I will not mention any names but we had a coach who coached freshman football and girls softball he was forced to resign because of inappropriate behavior towards the females. He and going to another school district and end up doing it again and went on to another school district after that. I had a teacher who had an affair with the student at Burbank High School and you end up marrying her and he end up being employed at Saugus high school by the William S Hart school district. Then you end up getting in trouble again and he skip town before they could nail him on other things he did.

  52. It is so sad that someone in a position of trust would misuse their privilege for their own selfish purposes and mislead those around him. I wonder if he will justify his actions on some basis.

  53. sounds about right….

  54. My mother always told me not to trust a man with a goatee

  55. Adrienne Moe Adrienne Moe says:

    If you read the article it seems they have tons of evidence. I wonder why they don’t investigate politicians so closely, $15K is chump change in the grand scheme of things.

    • Don Lamers Don Lamers says:

      Not sure if allegations are true, but $.01 cent of stolen money is too much. I can’t believe that $15K is “chump change”. Right vs. Wrong?!!! Your comment and the likers are what is WRONG with America! Disgusting!

    • Adrienne Moe Adrienne Moe says:

      Don, if you were able to comprehend anything, you would notice the sarcasm in my response. Nobody is saying what this man did shouldn’t be punished, because it should!! But if they investigate small time embezzlement, why can’t they investigate it on a much larger scale? Politicians embezzle millions of OUR money and never have to answer for it. What’s wrong with our country is people such as yourself because obviously our education system has failed you.

  56. Aaron Mizak Aaron Mizak says:

    It’s heartbreaking to know that a man I grew up looking up to, idolizing, following to Nickle State, and later raising my kids with “Snyd Values” ended up being a monster.

  57. Gary Carter says:

    Snyder is a slob. He sucked when he played and sucked as coach. Hope he fries.

  58. You’d think that a man embezzling that much money would step away from the Oakley look

  59. Yes I read the evidence in the newspaper but again Jared has a right to a fair trial and he has a right to defend himself in court in answer to the allegations against him I’m not saying that he’s innocent and I’m not saying he’s guilty we have to go through the due process and let us have his day in court . If he’s guilty Then he’s let his friends and family down and must pay the price. And if he’s innocent then let the jury make that decision. I’m not sticking up for him I’m just saying he should have a right to a fair trial before we can jump to conclusion.

    • Julie Stiff Julie Stiff says:

      There are many posts on FB where people jump the gun without knowing all the facts. I often wonder what if it were them? What if they were falsely accused (not saying Jared is because I don’t know the facts) how would they feel being judged so harshly by public opinion? It was nice to read a post from someone with a rational mind. Thank you Richard.

    • Hope he is ready to move out of town… regardless of outcome he is tainted with an ugly you can’t wash off…

  60. Wow! We are a baseball familia & this is hard to hear … shame on this scum!

  61. Aaron Mizak Aaron Mizak says:

    What an embarrassment to the sole patch community.

  62. I’ve had a sole patch for thirty years because of my trust in this man. Now the sole patch has been tainted with fraud and lies!

  63. $15,000 all invested in the maintenance of that beautiful goatee. #WORTHIT

  64. One down! A few more to go! I wonder if any of the admin had a part in this. Of course, some have retired after their shenanigans. Hmmm…but there is still karma.

  65. Travis May Travis May says:

    “Jared Snyder was such a kind and compassionate teacher/coach. He truly cared for his student’s/player’s well-being and lead by example. This is such a shock and surprise from a man that was not a bully or a control freak.” No One Ever.

  66. Ah haha have fun in the Feds Snyder!

  67. I dress my child up as The Snydog for Halloween every year with Oakleys and a prosthetic goatee to honor this man and this is how he repays us?! For shame!

  68. This wouldn’t be an issue if all money went through the ASB…there would be no freedom to tap into the money.

  70. ben says:

    Was in this a$$holes class last year, I remember when he sent a girl outside after screaming at her,then her crying. All form saying “i don’t know” to a question. He got what he deserved.

  71. Far worse than a student trying to stab someone, this is a teacher! Someone who represents the school

  72. Aaron Mizak Aaron Mizak says:

    I once was asked to participate in show and tell as a young Sophomore at VHS, I dressed up as a man that I believed to be a caring compassionate man who gave back to the community and his players. Now I’m embarrassed to say I ever dawned this mans face in a classroom

  73. David Bildner Do you know about this?

  74. He’s going to jail…

  75. I am honored to have played for him yo!

  76. Shannon Cruz Shannon Cruz says:

    Omg no way! My old teacher..

  77. I know this family and they were always very kind to me and my family. Innocent until proven guilty! I feel for this family because right or wrong, I am sure it is very hard on them!!

  78. lmao Mayra Díaz my high school’s baseball coach

  79. I have read every comment on this board and have to say I’m shocked, dispointed and disgusted by how many people have forgotten “Innocent until PROVEN Guilty” I don’t really remember him from school, as he was younger, but I can tell you that the district has not always been on the up and up, and I have seen 1st hand how things can go if you are not in the “In Crowd” I have no dog in this fight, except to remind people that both sides have not presented for public consumption, so how about we all remember innocent until proven guilty.

  80. Adrienne Moe Adrienne Moe says:

    It’s funny how people say innocent until proven guilty when it’s someone they know. I never see comments like this about people in the community that are arrested for “allegedly” robbing liquor stores. Hmmmm??

    • Doesn’t look good for him

    • How does the Michael brown case have any correlation with this? So much stupidity in this post I don’t even know where to begin. FYI liquor stores have surveillance cameras… It’s not “allegedly” when it’s caught on tape.

    • Adrienne Moe Adrienne Moe says:

      Ummmmmm, first of all, I mentioned NOTHING about Michael Brown. Just because I said “robbing a liquor store” you equate it to Micahael Brown? That’s your own racial issue. I was referring to the stories SCVTV posts in regards to people getting arrested around SCV for crimes that they “allegedly” commited, yet nobody comes to their defense saying, hey guys, we shouldn’t pass judgement cause they’re innocent until proven guilty. Again, the education system has failed, please read what I wrote before commenting.

  81. Shannen Schaefer wasn’t he the teacher you didn’t like?

  82. Adrienne Moe are not sticking up for Jarred I’m just saying everybody has a right to due process. I have a friend

  83. For almost making it in the majors that’s a rookie move.

  84. Jan K Lange Jan K Lange says:

    What did your husband have to say about this? I always thought the guy was an ass. He was definitely one that could be “bought” by parents of the players. There was one set of parents that not only lied their son into the Valencia High attendance area, so their son would have more playing time than he did at Hart High, but they would give Jared gifts for his classroom and buy whatever was necessary to get their son top playing time. No names mentioned as I wouldn’t stoop that low. Snyder had outstanding players quit the team because of his belittling. I wouldn’t put any of it past him, but like they say, “Guilty until proven innocent”. Oops, I guess I got that mixed up!

  85. That flavor savor is now his cell mates landing strip :)

  86. Keep in mind we have just as many innocent people sent to prison as of those who are guilty as sin. Take for example Elmer Geronimo Pratt who is the former leader of the Black Panther Party. Pratt was in prison for almost 40 years for a crime he did not comment. He was framed for murder. Granted Pratt was a thug I’m not going to lie about that. Despite the fact Pratt was a thug DNA evidence proven he was set up and the jury convicted the wrong person. Trust me if Jarred did what he did, I will not stick up for him. If I could talk to Jared face to face I would remind him only God knows the truth God knows who’s tells the truth and he knows whose lying. If he did what he did and he knows he did it, then God will forgive him for admitting his guilt. But if he says he innocent if he says he is then he better be right or other wise he will be found guilty. That’s what I would tell him.

  87. Doesn’t surprise me… 17 years ago I knew he was a nut job… He was such a cocky guy and was a dick to females…

  88. No innocent person is going to open a 2nd unauthorized account and pay their personal bills out of it. Please they did a 10 month investigation of bank records, and his personal credit card purchases. He stole from children for god sakes. He did this to his family no one else.

  89. I don’t trust a soul whom only grows chin hair.

    And Jesus, no trust in using those horrid white-plastic shades.
    Sweet mercy, what a fugly apparition, those glasses.

  90. BJ James BJ James says:

    Oh no! Now the baseball team will have to find another horrible role model to emulate.

  91. Have you ever done book keeping? Accounting? Administration? The only facts are that there is money missing not that it was Jared that did it. Go back to f-ing school. Allegation “a claim or assertion that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically one made without proof.”

  92. Ryan Zike Ryan Zike says:

    Damn Snyder! Old coach and teacher crazy!!

  93. Ryan Zike Ryan Zike says:

    Adrienne Moe super dumb comment!

  94. Ryan Zike Ryan Zike says:

    And come on ya’ll anybody who played for Snyder always made fun of him behind his back because he was full of himself and I remember it vividly. He was a smart ass

  95. Mimi Bond Mimi Bond says:

    He was my history teacher in summer school like 8 years ago. And he was an ASS HOLE

  96. Kathryn Johnson says:

    from personal experience and observation very grateful that he will never coach again. VERY.

  97. Kelly Greene says:

    How long was Jared Snyder a coach at Valencia High School?

  98. Adrienne Moe Adrienne Moe says:

    I care about your opinion Ryan Zike.

  99. Laura Bildner Roberson-Jones of course it has been a hot topic here for almost a year

  100. Omg this is crazy!!! And yeah he was pretty rude… I’d see him at light n healthy all the time!!

  101. Marissa says:

    Ashamed of what he did but was one of the best teachers for history i ever had. Learned so much from him and he really taught me to work hard and be prepared for college. Although it breaks my heart to know he did this…he still did some good at valencia.

  102. John Bakraji John Bakraji says:

    Whatttt that’s my old teacher. Giovanni Donan remember him

  103. Kathryn Johnson says:

    Those of us that experienced the years of this coaches regime are not surprised. Personally do not care if he spends one day in jail, just overwhelmingly grateful that he will never have the chance to teach/coach any student/player again.

  104. I bet he touched all the boys . he looks like a fondler.and it would make sense coming out of Valencia. Bunch of gay boys anyways

  105. Ruben Rivas Ruben Rivas says:

    Never was a fan of this guy Favian Danny

  106. Let’s see all the facts first, people! Snyder was a great teacher/person when I knew him Chelsea

  107. Josh Reyes Josh Reyes says:

    Great coach, cool guy…. Really sad to hear about this.

  108. Presumed innocent until proven guilty.

  109. Coach Snyder, in self-defense, argued that all the hats were accounted for and he didn’t have any balls.

  110. I like the comments from the parents who say “he was a mean coach to my son”. As a college athlete if I had a dollar for every negative or “mean” comment/gesture I would be very well off. Being an athlete is not a warm and fuzzy environment. If that’s what you’re looking for then maybe you need to think twice about being an athlete and competing at any level. If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen. I’m not saying what coach Snyder may have done is right (innocent until proven guilty), but what I am saying for those of you who dislike him or are attacking him because he was a “mean” coach, I hate break it to you but that’s life and it only gets worse.

  111. Greed will make people do stupid things, for what to have material things and be something that you are not. Very unfortunate that his family, his children have to pay the price for his actions.

  112. Keeping it RICH in Awesome Town . LOL

  113. Jason Gordon Jason Gordon says:

    Mr..Espinoza Jr. I dont really think its a 50-50 split in prision. Maybe do some research on that. 99% of the people there. Belong there. Other wise would would be hearing stories of thousands of people being released. Although thats what we are doing with all these convicted felons anyways. No disrespect just a conversation.

  114. Kristen Cunningham did you ever have him? I remember he was such an asswhole! So mean to students. I had anxiety when I would go to his class

  115. Kristen Cunningham did you ever have him? I remember he was such an asswhole! So mean to students. I had anxiety when I would go to his class

  116. As a member of his first team he coached at VHS I’m surprised and at the same time not surprised. Now I’m a member of California State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and it looks like he will be too.

  117. As a member of his first team he coached at VHS I’m surprised and at the same time not surprised. Now I’m a member of California State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and it looks like he will be too.

  118. Jason Gordon the Department of Justice released a report about 10 years ago stating that about 25% of incarcerated people are innocent.

    That’s why I left scv. The school district is going down hill.

  121. Silvie Faust Silvie Faust says:

    I feel sad for our community. Especially for our kids..

  122. Danny Reilly Danny Reilly says:

    He sounds like a pos .he’ll look good in county pink

  123. Paquita Engle says:

    Sounds fishy. He has a lot of explaining to do. Does sound like he was double dipping. lately many schools have problems not with the students but with adults who work there. Volunteers work countless hours to gather funds for the kids. This may detour others from donating. There should be better checks and balances in place. It’s too bad to read these sort of stories, but, all the schools in this Valley have awesome volunteers and donations.

  124. Bryan Calderon Randy Calderon. Not a shocker

  125. Hes gonna tell the judge “hey….atleast its not rape”

  126. Shawna Lemke Shawna Lemke says:

    Yep that was some of my money

  127. Kirsten Trimble says:

    I’m very saddened by the fact that there are childrens’ lives that have or will be affected by this. The whole situation…very sad.
