Wis. man gets 2 months for theft from youth league
APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -
An Appleton man who was convicted of stealing more than $20,000 from a youth baseball league has been sentenced to two months in jail.
A WLUK-TV report says Rodney K. Schreiber Jr. apologized for his actions when he was sentenced Friday. He said he took the money because of a gambling addiction, and there's no doubt that what he did was wrong.
Schreiber was convicted of felony theft. Prosecutors say the 41-year-old withdrew nearly $14,000 from the league account using mostly casino ATMs. He also allegedly used league money to buy a computer without permission.
Schreiber had been the only person authorized to withdraw money from the account. League officials say they now have several people overseeing the financial accounts.
