Former union official gets prison for embezzling
EAST ST. LOUIS ó A southwestern Illinois man has been ordered to spend a year and a day in federal prison for embezzling more than $102,000 from the plumbers union where he served as business manager.
Fifty-five-year-old Bill Adrian of Belleville was sentenced Monday in East St. Louis. He pleaded guilty in May to embezzlement and theft charges.
Prosecutors say Adrian had been an official with Plumbers Union Local 101 in Belleville from 1988 until early this year.
Adrian admitted using union funds and money from an employee benefit plan for personal expenses and submitting false annual reports to hide the theft.
