WILKES-BARRE — The former president of a youth football league in Luzerne County was sentenced Monday for stealing from the organization.

Mary Kramer of Shickshinny received six months house arrest and was ordered to pay back over $15,000 to the Northwest Area Junior Football League.

Kramer pleaded guilty to theft in February.

Police say she wrote checks to herself from the league’s uniform account.

    Let me ask the Judge this question . Grand theft gets house arrest ? Why because you know someone who knows someone who knows this woman ? I have more respect for the thief who robs the bank then I do for the thief who is entrusted to guard a youth organization funds. Second question . What in God’s name is at least $15k doing in a youth football account. Are you going to the Superbowl ? Building a field somewhere or just building up the kitty so it can be skimmed off the top every once in awhile ? All the youth leagues with many thousands of dollars invite the unscrupulous among us to abscond with vacation money, PoconoDowns play money etc etc. Third question . Most organizations have figured out the old two or three signatures and even in person signatures on deposits or withdrawals . And my last observation . The reason this happens ALL the TIME is that idiots are in charge ALL THE TIME !
