BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man is facing charges he embezzled at least $8,200 from the Shaftsbury Little League he led.
Brian Bushee, 41, of Arlington, pleaded not guilty Monday in court in Bennington to a felony embezzlement charge.
Court documents say that since Bushee became president of the North Bennington and Shaftsbury Little League in 2010 he had "assumed all responsibilities including financial transactions and management."
The Rutland Herald reports witnesses told police there were no records of what happened to money from the concession stand and that other money and equipment was missing as well.
State Police Detective Sgt. Tyler Burgess says Bushee admitted taking money from the Little League account for his own use, but intended to pay it back.
