Update: Ohio Union Treasurer Sentenced In $100K Embezzlement
Michael P. Kelly, 61, of Crestline, Ohio, was sentenced to a year and a day for embezzling nearly $100,000 from the Local 586 of the United Transportation Union while serving as its secretary and treasurer. Kelly had served as a conductor on the Crestline CSX railroad and retired in 2008 after 42 years employment. Prosecutors alleged that Kelly embezzled the union funds from January 2004 through November 2006. He plead guilty in August, admitting that he had used his position with the union to divert $97,971 by issuing checks to himself. He also reportedly attempted to cover up his thefts by forging the union president's signature on the checks.
