LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A former employee of an Iberia Parish nonprofit that works to redevelop rural communities has been sentenced to 90 days in prison and ordered to perform 600 hours of community service for embezzling roughly $90,000 from the organization.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/2006Vr4) 33-year-old Timothy Daigle, who now works as a baseball coach at Marksville High School, pleaded guilty in September to a federal fraud charge.

Prosecutor say Daigle was accused taking federally supported loans that Southern Mutual Help Association was overseeing to help low-income families repair their homes.

U.S. District Judge Haik allowed Daigle to wait until June 1 to report to federal prison, giving him time to finish out the current school year.
