— Randolph Louis Deyton, 46, of Boise, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to embezzling public funds.

According to court documents, between 2002 and August 2011, Deyton was employed by the federal government at the Centennial Job Corps in Nampa.

While overseeing the Work Based Learning Program, Deyton maintained a bank account for Job Corps participants.

On Dec. 5, 2011, the U.S. Forest Service determined the program's bank account was overdrawn due to a withdrawal made by Deyton.

Deyton admitted that on or about August 23, 2011, he withdrew $6,528.00 from the Work Based Learning Program bank account for his own personal use.

A subsequent investigation determined that on or about Dec. 21, 2010, Deyton used the debit card from the program's bank account to purchase money orders of approximately $3,229.89.

Sentencing is set for July 14 before the Judge Edward J. Lodge in Boise. Embezzlement of public funds is punishable by a maximum of ten years imprisonment, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.

The case was investigated by the United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Law Enforcement and Investigations division.
