A former North Logan City library director was sentenced Monday for stealing $89,000 worth of library funds and spending it on the mobile video game “Game of War.”

Investigators said 38-year-old Adam Winger, who was director of the North Logan City Library for about three years, used a city credit card to buy hundreds of gift cards that he then used to play “Game of War,” FOX 13 reported.

Winger agreed to pay $78,000 in restitution in June, according to FOX 13, and on Monday was ordered to spend 30 days in jail and do community service as part of his sentence.
