Ex-Youth Football League Director Gets Prison Time For Stealing From Organization

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The former regional director of a New Jersey youth football league has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the organization.

Federal prosecutors say 58-year-old David Marshall received a 27-month sentence Wednesday. He had pleaded guilty in January to wire fraud.

Marshall was the eastern region director for Pop Warner Little Scholars, one of several volunteer posts he held in the organization from 2005-2011. He was responsible for financial matters and had access to bank and credit card accounts.

Marshall admitted using the funds he stole to pay off personal debts, make cash withdrawals and buy personal items.

The eastern region covers Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington.
