NILES A former high school coach has learned his punishment for gambling away money that belonged to the school's bowling team.
James Conrad, 52, originally told police the money was stolen out of his car while it was parked outside the bowling alley. He later admitted to using the cash at a casino. $350 of that money was supposed to go to Brandywine's bowling team.
Niles Daily Star reports that Conrad pleaded guilty. He will serve one year on probation and 80 days of community service.
The school district decided not to pursue embezzlement charges against Conrad. Instead, they allowed him to resign and pay the money back.
