Update On Florida Union Treasurer Embezzlement Case: Suspect Pleads Guilty

Tarris Dynell Dallas, 43, of Fernandina Beach, Florida and the former treasurer of the Nassau County, Florida chapter of the United Steelworkers International Union, pleaded guilty yesterday to charges that he embezzled more than $100,000 from the union. According to prosecutors, Dallas wrote 125 fraudulent checks out of Local 9-415’s bank account, totaling $103,000, and took another $1,300 in unauthorized ATM withdrawals. Dallas had been employed by the local for some 10 years before he was fired last January after the apparent misappropriation came to light. He was indicted last November.
