Former Union Financial Secretary In Florida To Plead Guilty In $1.2 Million Embezzlement Case

Carolyn Sue Alderman-Connon, 45, of Palm Coast, Florida is expected to plead guilty to charges she embezzled more than $1.2 million from the Southeast Area Joint Apprenticeship Program of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders and Blacksmith Builders, where she had been employed as a financial secretary. According to prosecutors, Alderman-Connon "routinely, and without permission or authorization" transferred funds to accounts she could then write checks from to herself or fictitious payees. It is unclear how long the scheme lasted. Specifically, she plead guilty to two counts of embezzlement from an employee benefit plan and faces up to five years in prison for each count.
