Ex-Pop Warner Executive from Jackson Admits Stealing Hundreds of Thousands
A onetime regional director in the Pop Warner youth football organization from Jackson awaits a scheduled June 25 sentencing for systematically diverting money for his own use over the span of several years.
David Marshall pleaded guilty in a Trenton federal courtroom to a count of wire fraud today, according to information from the office of New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman. He risks up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $250,000.
Investigators learned that Marshall held various volunteer posts for Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc., and was director for the Eastern Region from 2004 through 2011.
The position placed him in charge of finances, giving him acess to bank and credit card accounts.
Authorities say he dipped into them for “hundreds of thousands” of dollars to pay off personal expenses and withdraw cash, and bought personal items on a Pop Warner-issued credit card.
Marshall has also agreed to pay a yet-undetermined amount of restitution.
