NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The former volunteer treasurer for Tennessee Disabled American Veterans has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for theft.

According to the Nashville district attorney’s office, Thomas Keller, of Murfreesboro, pleaded guilty in April and was sentenced on Friday in Davidson County Criminal Court.

Witnesses in court on Friday said Keller wrote checks to himself for more than $131,000. They also said he spent thousands more of the charity’s money to pay his phone, cable and credit card bills. And he cost the charity a $20,000 fine by failing to pay employee withholding taxes to the federal government.

Keller was treasurer for the charity from 2007 to 2010.
