Federal Way youth sports treasurer sentenced in embezzlement

The former treasurer for three Federal Way youth sports leagues was sentenced today to 30 days in jail and must pay nearly $34,000 in restitution for embezzling funds from the leagues.

Colleen A. Wiley, 44, pleaded guilty Jan. 18 to first-degree theft. Prosecutors say Wiley wrote unauthorized checks and an unauthorized wire transfer totaling $33,967.20 – the restitution she must now pay.

According to court documents, the Federal Way woman stole the money from three leagues between August 2007 and January 2009.

Wiley was charged in August 2010 with four counts of first-degree theft and six counts of second-degree theft, and originally pleaded not guilty. The charges were reduced to the one count of first-degree theft in a plea agreement.

The three leagues involved are the Puget Sound Junior Football League, the Federal Way American Little League and Federal Way Junior Football Hawks.

King County Superior Court Judge Brian Gain sentenced Wiley today at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.
