This is really low.
ADELANTO, Calif. (AP) — A former mayor of a California high desert town and his wife have been sentenced to 6 months in jail for the theft of more than $20,000 from Little League coffers.
Jim Nehmens, 50, and Kelly Nehmens, 44, pleaded guilty to grand theft by embezzlement and perjury Thursday.
The eight-year councilman and Adelanto mayor had resigned from his post on March 31, about a week before he and his wife were arrested.
The former mayor was president of the Adelanto Little League, and his wife was a board member during the years the money from the league’s annual fireworks sales went missing. The money was taken over three years starting in 2004.
