Former Poplar Bluff football coach to stand trial for stealing

Monday, April 30, 2012

Former Poplar Bluff High School football coach Shane Kearbey will be bound over for trial to face a felony stealing charge, ruled Judge John Bloodworth at a preliminary hearing Friday morning.

Kearbey was charged June 3 with stealing from a football team fundraiser in which money had been collected for "meal cards" -- the school athletic program buys the cards, redeemable at local restaurants, at a cost of $5 each, and football players sell the cards for $15 each with the profits deposited in the program's reimbursable account.

Kearbey allegedly deposited money turned in by the players into his personal bank account.

Kearbey's trial was set for 9 a.m. May 15.
