Soccer Mom Found Guilty of Assault

November 30, 2000

SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) _ A woman was found guilty of assault for her part in a brawl involving parents at a boys’ soccer game.

Jacqueline Lenon was ordered Tuesday to complete 20 hours of community service and was fined $405.

Municipal Judge Michael Dowgin also recommended that Lenon enroll in an anger-management program. She refused.

Police said the fight Sept. 19 began after the two teams, one from New York City, the other from North Hunterdon, N.J., were about to begin a shootout to break a tie. The players were 8 and 9 years old.

Debra Frey filed charges against Lenon, and Lenon brought charges against Frey.

Frey was found innocent Tuesday after three witnesses testified that she was asking the crowd to disperse when Lenon pushed her. One witness, a tournament volunteer, testified that Lenon had taken several swings at him.
