Scarborough man sentenced for American Legion theft

Ryan Byther found guilty of Class B theft by deception

 AUGUSTA – Attorney General William J. Schneider announced that Ryan J. Byther, age 36, of Scarborough, was sentenced yesterday for stealing $50,000 from the American Legion Post 56 of York.  York County Superior Court Justice O’Neill sentenced Byther to five years of incarceration with all but six months suspended; three years of probation; and restitution in the amount of $50,000.

After a two day trial last February, a jury returned a guilty verdict on a one-count indictment that charged Byther with Class B Theft by Deception.   

Byther, a general contractor working for the American Legion on a new building project in early 2008, represented to Legion officials that he was an experienced professional fundraiser and could manage their $2 million fundraising campaign.  Evidence introduced at trial showed that Byther had no fundraising experience and had never been licensed as a professional fundraiser in Maine.

As a result of his deception, Byther obtained a $50,000 retainer from the American Legion in March, 2008. Byther never raised any funds for the Legion. Instead, he spent the $50,000 on his other business pursuits and expenses, including the Prost Tap House and Club Onyx, a bar and nightclub that Byther opened in the Old Port of Portland in June of 2008 and that failed several months later.

“The American Legion is a valuable resource to so many in the York area,” said Attorney General Schneider. “Stealing from this kind of community based organization really takes away from Maine families and neighborhoods. This sentence reflects the seriousness and impact of this crime.”

This case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Investigations Unit and the York Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Michael J. Colleran handled this matter for Attorney General Schneider’s Criminal Division.
