[JURISPRUDENCE] A Massachusetts youth soccer organization director has been charged with embezzling thousands of dollars from the Orange Recreation Association, some of which he allegedly used at restaurants, bars, liquor stores, gas stations and supermarkets -- and to put a down payment on a Humvee.

According to The Recorder, Jason P. Vautour, 34, who was arraigned on a felony charge of larceny over $250 by embezzlement and intimidating a witness, opened a checking account in 2009, days after he became soccer director, that saw transactions of more than $45,000.

“Some of the transactions on the account were completely legitimate” and went toward Orange Recreation Association projects and activities, said Orange Police Chief Robert Haigh Jr. “[But] we have [records of] debit card transactions at restaurants, bars, liquor stores, gas stations and supermarkets."

Vautour, who was responsible for collecting players’ registration fees and donations, allegedly tried to disguise the Humvee down payment as a trailer purchase for the association.

Haigh said the Orange Recreation Association had no record of the account, had never given Vautour permission to open it, and found only 15 cents in it when it was discovered.
