TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A long-time youth football coach in Marana has been sentenced for stealing from the organization he led as president.

Steve Leslie Marshall received seven years' probation and 120 days in jail on Monday, June 10.

He must report to jail by 6 p.m. Friday, but is immediately eligible for work-furlough.

Marshall was also given 700 hours of community service and ordered to pay $30,000 restitution to the Marana Broncos, a youth football team.
