A Great Falls man accused of embezzling $55 thousand dollars from the Shrine charity football game that he managed made his initial appearance in court today.

78-year-old Jerrold Vaughn Evans faces charges of theft embezzlement for allegedly writing checks to himself out of the East-West Shrine Game account.

At the time, Evans was the chairman of the annual charity football game that raised money for the Shriners hospital in Spokane.

The game's treasurer found the discrepancy, and after an accounting audit in June Evans told a private investigator he took the money to cover his gambling and alcohol problems.

Evans could receive a $50 thousand dollar fine and up to ten years in prison.
