Brandon May of Mt. Pleasant, leaves East Huntingdon District Judge Charles Moore's office on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016.

A judge has ordered an East Huntingdon man accused of stealing money from a girls softball organization in 2014 to pay nearly $28,000 in restitution to 29 victims.

Brandon K. May, 41, was sentenced Monday to six months on home electronic monitoring and five years of intermediate punishment. He pleaded guilty in August.

Police said May was president and treasurer of the six-team Lady Vengeance Softball Organization during the 2014, 2015 and 2016 seasons. He allegedly took money from dues paid by parents of the players to foot his personal bills, county detectives said. He was arrested in February 2016.

An audit of the organization’s checking account showed numerous transactions that were not team-related expenses, police said. May used the money for self-storage units, car payments, a cellphone and restaurant and convenience store purchases, police said in court papers.

Judge Rita Hathaway ordered May pay $5,500 on Monday and at least $800 monthly toward restitution.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
