DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — A Spearfish man has been sentenced for embezzling from youth sports programs.

Forth-three-year-old Nicholas Hoffman pleaded guilty in July to grand theft by embezzlement in a deal with prosecutors in which the Queen City Futbol Club, the Spearfish Youth Wrestling Club and the Spearfish Rams Football group will get about $14,500 in restitution.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports Hoffman was sentenced Friday to 30 days in jail, three years of probation and 100 hours of community service. He also was fined $1,500.
