Guilty in 400G soccer theft
The former treasurer of a New Jersey volunteer youth soccer league has admitted stealing more than $400,000.
Anthony Gallo, 57, of Freehold Township, on Monday pleaded guilty to theft.
Under terms of a plea agreement, he faces up to six years in prison and must pay $280,000 in restitu- tion when sentenced in January.
The president of the Freehold Soccer League called for an investigation in 2016 after learning that bills for uniforms were not paid and money was missing from bank accounts.
Gallo admitted stealing the money between 2012 and 2016 and using it to pay personal expenses.
