FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A former volunteer treasurer of a Framingham youth soccer league has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $175,000 from the program.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan’s office says 43-year-old Scott Vermilya was sentenced Thursday in Woburn to two years in prison. The Framingham man pleaded guilty to charges including larceny and fiduciary embezzlement.

Vermilya oversaw condominium associations for ReMax/Destiny real estate in 2012. Authorities determined Vermilya shifted funds in bank accounts to compensate for shortages, sometimes taking money for himself.

Ryan’s office says Vermilya became the volunteer treasurer of the Framingham United Soccer Club in 2014 where he used the position to write checks from the association to cover the missing funds in the Cambridge company’s accounts.

Authorities say he used the club’s debit card for personal expenses.
