A former Head Start financial officer is facing up to ten years in prison after pleading guilty to embezzling from the organization.

Brian D. Marshall, 35, could also be fined up to $250,000, after being required to pay back the money he took.

Marshall admitted Monday that he embezzled more than $20,000 from Family Development of Parkersburg, an organization that administers federal funding for Head Start in Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Jackson, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wirt and Wood counties.

The federal government terminated Family Development's grant in 2005 because it failed to comply with requirements.
