Charges have been filed against a soccer director accused of stealing money from the Southern Utah Soccer Association's youth recreational soccer program.

Rhonda Case, 42, of Cedar City, has been charged in 5th District Court with theft, a third-degree felony, for allegedly withholding donations and revenues from the youth soccer program KICKS and using the money for personal use.

According to court documents, about $1,200 from the soccer program, which serves youth ages 4 to 19, have either been unaccounted for by Case or were used for her own personal purchases.

Money from several sources of revenue was missing, according to court documents, including a $900 cash donation, cash from concession sales and money from several nights of fundraising. Prosecutors also allege that Case used the league's debit card at Wal-Mart for personal purchases, as well as used the card to pay for her home Internet and a cellphone upgrade.

Case is expected to make her initial appearance in court on Jan. 29.
