A Ventura County man has been sentenced to eight months in jail after pleading guilty to a charge he embezzled money from a non-profit community festival.

Prosecutors say Robert Capellini was President of the Camarillo Fiesta Association when he stole more than $25,000. The group, which hosts an annual community festival, receives some funding from the City of Camarillo. Capellini has already paid back more than $24,000 in restitution, with the rest of the money still pending.
