A former Head Start financial officer will spend a year in federal prison after embezzling nearly $21,000 from the program.

Brian D. Marshall, 35 of Parkersburg must make restitution.

The organization, Family Development, administered federal funding for Head Start programs 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 program requirements.

Marshall was sentenced yesterday by Chief U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin.

Goodwin ordered Marshall to self-report to a federal facility on October 29th, and recommended that Marshall serve his sentence at a minimum security camp.
