(WOUB) - A former fiscal manager has been accused of embezzling $20,000 from a Parkersburg based organization that administered federal Head Start funding for ten counties.

Brian D. Marshall was charged last week in a federal information. An information usually indicates that the defendant has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

A plea hearing is scheduled for Monday in US District Court inCharleston.

According to the information, Marshall formerly served as fiscal manager for Family Development. He is accused of embezzling $20,000 between January 2005 and September 30th, 2005.

The federal Administration for Children and Families terminated Family Development's grant in 2005. The federal agency said Family Development failed to comply with program governance requirements and failed to properly monitor its financial operations.
