October 1, 2018

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say the former president of a Tucson youth football organization is accused of stealing more than $50,000 from the Marana team’s bank account.

The Arizona Daily Star reports Oro Valley police records show Steven Leslie Marshall Jr. allegedly used the money to pay for rent and water bills plus car repairs, vehicle registration, hotel rooms and dental braces for himself and his family.

Marshall pleaded not guilty Friday in Pima County Superior Court to eight felony charges of theft, forgery and fraudulent schemes.

Board members of Marana Broncos team reported Marshall to police in May 2017 shortly after he stepped down as the association’s president.

The board discovered irregular financial activity dating to Marshall’s eight-year tenure and the Tucson Youth Football and Spirit Federation has banned him for life.
