LUZERNE COUNTY -- 77-year-old George Fedor admitted stealing $41,000 from the Jeddo Stars Athletic Association near Freeland.

Fedor said in court that he stole the money to feed a gambling problem.

The club's president asked for no jail time since Fedor has already paid back some of the stolen money.
