OSAWATOMIE — Former Osawatomie recreation director Ron Maring was sentenced Monday to five years on federal supervised probation for embezzling more than $125,000 from the city.   Maring, 54, pleaded guilty to one count of tax fraud and false statement, and one count of money laundering, acting U.S. Atty. Tom Beall said.  Maring wrote checks from the recreation commission’s account to himself and to American Legion baseball, which he converted for his own use.  As part of the scheme, he persuaded recreation commission board members to sign blank checks, used his own signature as an endorsement and instructed a recreation commission employee to endorse checks.  When he filed his 2010 federal income tax return he didn’t report the embezzled income.
