A Ville Platte man will serve jail time for stealing a friend's veteran's benefits. Judge Richard Haik sentenced 66-year old William Marshall to a year in jail and three years supervised release. Marshall pleaded guilty in February to stealing nearly $178,000 in VA funds from his friend's checking account. Marshall admitted in court to using the money to pay for his living expenses.
