ALBION — The former vice-chairman of the Ligonier Marshmallow Festival was sentenced Thursday to one year in jail for his role in pilfering money from the festival’s treasury.

Bret Goodyear, 31, of Ligonier appeared before Noble County Circuit Court Judge David Laur and was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty earlier this year to a charge of fraud on a financial institution. Laur suspended two years of the sentence and told Goodyear he was eligible for a work-release program.
