- Former president of the Cincinnati Organized and Dedicated Employees union, Diana Frey, was sentenced to 51 months in prison for stealing more than $757,000 from the union she founded. A Department of Labor investigation uncovered evidence that Frey used union funds for a vacation condo, a swimming pool, food, travel, and pet care. In addition to prison time, Frey was ordered to make restitution for the money she stole.
- Melissa King, former benefits plan administrator for the New York-based Laborers’ International Union Local 147, received a six-year prison sentence for stealing millions of dollars from the fund she once managed. The sentence also requires King to forfeit a $2 million residence and to make restitution of a yet-to-be-determined amount. In the fall of 2011, King pled guilty to one count of embezzling funds and one count of filing a false federal tax return. In early 2010, prosecutors charged King with stealing some $43 million dollars of benefit plan funds through her company King Care LLC.
